|A selection of the lip liners I am using right now.|
The only downside to doing your own lip pencils
is the neutral design. Applying any type of
label makes sharpening difficult.
The upside? 100% personalized color!
I considered doing my own lipsticks when I started doing my own make-up, but being the demanding creature I am, I couldn't find any containers that could pass the luxury test and be ordered in quantities of under 10.000. I ended up doing a series of "fat lip liners" that I combine with my Ultimate Balm Gloss Pot, and darned if it doesn't give me color, staying power and moisture. I'm guessing the same would be possible to acheive with a paraffin-free, petroleum-free, commercial lip liner.

1. Apply your lip liner of choice normally, then fill in your lips with the color. You now have full color on your lips with a matt surface.
2. Apply glossy lip balm to add shine and moisturizing action
