Sure it may seem like an unnecessary makeup item, but lip liner is more than just another item beauty companies try to sell. Lip liner really does have a necessary spot in your makeup arsenal. Lip liner is back, honey, and I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon! With this sure-to-stay trend, lip liner is the add-on staple you can’t refuse.

Smudge No More

Lip liner creates boundaries…everyone likes those right?! The application of lip liner helps to significantly decrease color slippage. It acts like a barrier between your lips and your skin. If you want something that looks clean and simple, try finding a color that matches your lipstick!
