Lip liner has been the surprise trend of 2014. Thanks to Kylie Jenner's faux-full lips, the retro beauty trend is well and truly back, but liner doesn’t have to be obvious and some colours, especially dark ones are far better paired with a neat line.
Cue Rebel, my winter lipstick of choice. The vivid pinkish-purple is my perfect not-too-dark dark lip. But since it’s dark and so pigmented it’s quite tricky to apply straight from the bullet. It really helps to line and define the lips first. I’ve seen online a lot of people team it with MAC’s Vino lip liner, but honestly I didn’t fancy spending £13 on a lip liner so I popped to Boots and picked up a £1.99 dupe!
Natural Collection Lip Lines in Mulberry is a wonderful red wine colour – dark plum with a hint of pink. Not quite as purple as Rebel, but close enough! It applies easily with no drag and to my surprise, is not at all drying. It’s ideal for lining the lips, or for even longer lasting lipstick, colour the entire lip before applying your colour. Helps to ensure you stay in the lines, reduced bleed, intensifies the lipstick colour and if you want to exaggerate your pout, you can.
