A plump pout is a delicious and youthfully pretty addition to any makeup look. And as any beauty buff will tell you, the best place to start when creating such a look is lip liner, obviously.
Whether you like to sketch out a whole new set of smackers or lightly define your kisser for a barely there, softly-bitten pout, a good lip pencil can make the world of difference.
Here, we’ve selected five lip-lining options that deliver pro-level results, to leave your lips looking heavenly no matter your pout persuasion:
DIOR Contour Universal Contour Lipliner
Talk about no-makeup makeup. This contouring lip liner from Dior uses a clear, universally wearable formula to sculpt and define lip colour for that clean edge pro finish – no MUA necessary.
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY (P)outliner Longwear Lip Liner Pencil
If you go B-A-N-A-N-A-S for a creamy lip liner that delivers that covetable just-kissed look (we’re talking soft, blurred lines here people), with the added bonus of a long-lasting formula for all-day wear, you can’t beat this.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
With an impressive and impactful range of shades to choose from, this long-lasting option is anti-feathering so you can line away without worrying about your lipstick running away on you. Phew.
Laura Mercier Longwear Lip Liner
Boasting a satin-soft finish that hydrates as well as defines, this Laura Mercier pick is a delight to wear and perfect for comfortable, everyday living. Find your new favourite your-lips-but-better shade from the selection of flattering nude hues in the range.
M.A.C Lip Pencil
An OG of the lip liner variety, MAC’s Lip Pencil is a tried and true favorite the world over for a reason; with an impressively gargantuan wardrobe of shades to choose from and a smooth and creamy formula that makes application a cinch.
