Lip liner first, lipstick second. Right? Well, not necessarily says Jamie Genevieve, VIEVE founder, as she throws the rule book out the window when in favour of wanting a more natural pout.

“Create a lovely, hydrating base colour using VIEVE Modern Matte Lipstick or Satin Slip Lipstick, depending on your preferred lip finish. Make sure your lip liner is sharp using the VIEVE Sharpener and push out your lip line. Want to give the illusion of bigger lips? Overline by focussing on the centre of your lips for a more natural look. Already have full lips? Simply follow your natural lip line to enhance your pout.”

“I always curve from the outer edge upwards as that gives you more of a natural defined line and cupids bow. I also fill in the outer corners with lip liner as it gives your lipstick something to grip onto, making it last longer.”

VIEVE have the best products to line and define lips as each of our lip liner is enriched with ingredients to nourish your pout. Pairing your lip liner and lipstick together can create a more natural look but be your own makeup artist by playing with pairings. Whilst you can enhance your lip line with a complementary colour to your lips, add definition by using a deeper shade. Get inspired by the iconic nude lip of the nineties by lining lips with two nude shades before applying a gloss over the top. The combinations are endless says Jamie:

“I believe there are no rules when it comes to makeup-whatever makes you feel your best is perfect! A good method to help navigate lip colours is to match in with your skintone; if you have a paler complexion, try paler shades for a natural look or go deeper fora statement lip. For deeper skin tones; try a darker shade close to your complexion for a subtle look or go lighter for a pop of colour.”
