Lip Liner is Back

July 21, 2015

Thanks to the reborn 90’s trend and those Kardashians (& Jenners, specifically Kylie) lip liners are making a comeback in a huge way. I was definitely skeptical at first, but after rocking a lip liner at my sister’s wedding last fall and seeing all of the benefits then and since, I think I’m a believer.

If you were wearing lip liner in the 90s, or are a  Real Housewife from New Jersey, the way the trend used to be rocked is no longer the way.

Instead of just merely just using the liner to outline the lips, lips should be line and filled-in with the pencil. This method makes the color last a really long time, makes any color you put on top of it last longer, and makes the lips more defined and much more plumped.

Lately I’ve loved wearing liner by itself with a soft pink gloss on top, just to soften the matte effect.
My favorite more subtle liners are Rimmel’s East End Snob, Nyx’s Slim Lip Pencil in Rose & Mac’s Spice.

Do you love the new lip liner trend or no?

  1. I definitely am feeling the lipliner trend. I'm not much of a nude lover but my go to classic red lip is ColourPop's "Bichette" lipliner. I find it lasts wayyy longer and is SO matte. Just how I like it!

    Great article!

  2. MAC's "soar" and "boldly bare" are two of my favs!
