How To Apply Lipstick Without Liner

Don't worry if you've misplaced or forgotten your go-to lip liner. Even if you don't use a liner, you can still apply lipstick. By carefully drawing a line using a brush, cotton swab, or the lipstick itself, you can use it as a liner.

You may also use your makeup as a lip liner alternative. Whatever product you select, you'll be able to quickly make lovely lips.

Method 1 of 3: Tracing a line with a brush or lipstick

1. If you have one, choose a brush to apply your lip color with.

If you use a brush to apply your lip color, it will be much easier. Lip color is often applied with large brushes with a pointed tip. You have a lot of control over the line you draw with a brush.

When compared to a lip liner, a brush allows you to draw smoother, straighter lines. Lip brushes come particularly handy when wearing red lipsticks and you don't want to use a lip liner. If you don't have a brush, a cotton swab will suffice.

2. Brush or swab the tip of your lip color with your brush or cotton swab.

On your brush or cotton swab, apply a small, even amount of color. It's best not to use too much lipstick on it because it'll appear sloppy.

Dip the brush or cotton swab into the tube if you're using liquid lipstick.

3. If you don't have a brush, apply the lipstick directly to your lips.

Outlining your lips with the pointed end of the lipstick is a good idea.

You should use a brush or cotton swab if your lipstick is flat and no longer has a pointed edge.

4. Starting with your top lip, draw a pleasing contour for your lip line.

Apply your lipstick with a brush or your finger, just like you would lip liner. Begin by tracing the outline of your top and bottom lips in the center. Follow the natural curve of your lips or slightly accentuate the lines.

Use mild pressure and short, even strokes.

Method 2 of 3: Using two shades of lip colour

1. To add contrast, apply a deeper shade of lipstick as a lip liner.

You can use your lipstick as a liner instead of a lip liner pencil. Choose a hue that contrasts with your lipstick, such as a deeper shade.

2. To highlight the rim of your mouth, use a light lipstick colour.

This will still provide a barrier for lipstick application, but with a lighter contrasting tone, such as pink or nude.

3. Use the tiny, pointed edge of the lipstick or brush to trace around your lips.

Draw a line around the outside of your lips, following the natural edge.

4. Use your lipstick to fill in the gaps between your lips.

As you get to the red outer line, blend in both colors using your brush or finger. This is a great method to give your lips more depth.

You can line your lips with a dark red lipstick and then apply a bright pink lipstick on your lips.

Just make sure the two hues are well blended because a visible dark outline can look antiquated.

Method 3 of 3: Substituting commendation for your liner

1. Apply your foundation as normal

Cover your face with foundation, either powder or liquid, to level out your skin tone and prepare for your lipstick.

2. Apply a faint, even application of foundation to your lips' edges.

Blend foundation into your skin around the top and bottom edges of your lips. This will be used as a lip liner. You can use your fingers or a lip brush to apply foundation to the borders of your lips.

Foundation or concealer works well as a substitute for liner because it gives your lipstick something to stick to.

Please keep in mind that this method may make your lipstick appear lighter.

3. Begin by applying lipstick to the center of your upper lip.

To apply lip color, rub the stick over your lips. Instead of drawing a line on your lips with a lip liner, follow the natural line of your lips. [8]

Make sure you don't eat your foundation. You're merely putting it on the outside of your lips.

4. Reapply your lipstick after blotting it.

Place a tissue between your lips and gently press it together. Then, using the same manner as before, reapply your lipstick. This will allow you to build up pigment without forming a thick, bleed-prone coating.

5. Use your lipstick, lip brush, or foundation to retouch your lip line.

If you need to touch up your line, use the edge of the lipstick or a lip brush to smooth over the edge of your lips.

To remedy any faults, apply a second light, even application of foundation around your mouth.
