The birth of lip pencil
It can be said that the birth of lip pencil came into being, and it is said that it was invented by the British in 1948.
Around the age of 25, make-up began to move from stage to daily life, but the technology at that time was still very backward. Early lipsticks were similar to current lip glosses, which could change the lip color, but they were prone to smudging and falling off, and the lip contours could not be clearly presented.
Tips for using lip liner
The outline of the lip shape is not simply four words, but a perfect lip shape concept that fits the face shape.
Looking straight ahead in the mirror, the distance between the inner edge points of the dark eyes of the two eyes is the overall width of the lips, which determines the position of the corners of the mouth.
Then modify the lip shape according to the principle of symmetry.
For generous lips, or areas that exceed the perfect lip shape, foundation and concealer products are needed to cover and touch up, and then use a lip liner.
Before drawing the lip line, drawing the line on the back of the hand or paper towel is a crucial step.
Lip liners need to have good color fixation, mainly waxy and hard texture.
Draw a line in front of the upper lip to soften the tip of the pen, and at the same time, you can observe whether the thickness of the line is appropriate.
Many people don't know how to do this little action first, so they feel that lip pencils are not easy to draw, especially in cold weather, which is more difficult to control.
Many people think that the lip liner is not easy to use because they are not sure about the lip shape they have outlined and cannot be done in one step.
In addition to determining the position of the lip peak first, filling the gap can help you better modify the lip shape, especially for people with thin and thick lips. Filling can directly check the effect of lip modification and lay a good foundation for the skin tone area. In this way, the subsequent use of lipstick will not show obvious color difference.
But many people don't know this, thinking that the lip liner is just for contouring.
