Growing up in the ’90s you would remember seeing all the famous supermodels, pop stars, and Bollywood divas outlining their lips with a dark brown lip liner. The trend was so popular that we would see our moms replicating it. Using the phrase- the return of the ’90s would sound redundant here because every fashion glossy and website have been talking about the resurgence of all the trends for a while now. And when it comes to makeup, Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan is quite a pro and her Instagram page is filled with makeup inspiration for us to copy. She has been rocking the ’90s lip liner for a while now and it’s a huge trend in 2021.
Tips to apply a lip liner in the most flawless way
1. Prep your lips
It is important for your lips to be smooth because your lip liner has a small tip that can’t glide over patchy lips smoothly. Put sugar and honey on your toothbrush and gently exfoliate it. Use a lip balm post this, but make sure you pat off the excess balm on your lips.
2. Make sure the lip liner and lip colour are of the same family
The lip liner should be darker but shouldn’t be contrasting either. If you are wearing red lipstick then use a brick coloured lip liner. Use brown lip liner with beige lips and dark purple with mauve.
3. Line your lips and later fill it with your lipcolour
Outline your lips by following the natural lip line and then fill it with your lipstick. You can also make it glossy which will be a welcome change from how it used to be in the ’90s.
