I tried to recreate Kylie Jenner’s signature lined lips and…
…it was a disaster!
I know people either love or hate Kylie Jenner, I happen to like her. I’m not saying I agree with everything she does but I like that, not being one of the better looking Kardashians, she has taken beauty into her own hands and along the way has also had such a huge impact on current beauty trends. *Hello full lips and long acrylic nails*
Inspired by Jenner, I’ve tried to over line my lips a few times over the past year with no success. So finally, I gave in and looked around for the best tutorial and decided to give it a go. The one I found most helpful was this one by Desi Perkins.
Things I learned
I realized that previously I was over-lining my entire lip, where I should have actually only overlined the cupids bow.
I also learned that I should only use a matte lip liner because anything else would draw attention to my natural lip line.
Truth be told, I don’t know if I’m just terrible at doing my makeup, my natural lip line is too thick to look normal or a mixture of all but this look looked terrible on me. I tried to get the best angle when taking the picture but it was hard to get rid of my natural lip line. Maybe I needed a more matte lip liner? I guess I’ll keep trying but I don’t see this working for me. Have you tried?
