Steal vs. Splurge: Lip Liner

Steal vs. SplurgeLip Liner

Lip liner is a makeup bag essential. I prioritize lip liner in my makeup routine as much as I prioritize primer. It is your secret weapon to fuller lips and a tool for helping your lipstick last longer. The key to your dream lip begins with the perfect lip liner to lipstick color match. Don’t worry, I did the work for you guys! I spent the day at Ulta, Sephora and my local drug store finding the perfect liner match to every Sacred Child Beauty Lipstick. Whether you're in the mood to spend or save, I found both options that perfectly match every Sacred Child Beauty shade.


If this is your first time applying liner or you feel like you’re just not doing something right, let's go through a quick how to.

Step 1: Prep your lips. Make sure your lips are moisturized and exfoliated! This will ensure a smooth application and final look. No dry flakes here!

Step 2: Choose your shade. Choose your lip liner color based on your lipstick color. Forget the 90’s unmatched look!

Step 3: Start to line. Using short and natural strokes, start from the corner of your lip and follow just outside your natural lip line. Do the same on your bottom lip line to complete your lining process. This will create a fuller, wider-looking lip and define your pout. No need to spend hundreds of dollars on injections.  

Step 4: Fill in. To help your lipstick last longer, fill in your lips with the lip liner. This will add color intensity.

Step 5: Bring in the lipstick. Apply your matching lipstick shade on your entire lip! You can use the lipstick “stick” itself, or a lip brush for more precision. Both work great.
