A word on overlining









If there's a makeup trend that is marking this period, it's definitely lip overlining. Sure, there is contouring, highlighting and strobing, but none of them are as big as overlining. Like all makeup trends it wasn't invented yesterday. Although it seems like contemporary makeup artists are the ones who came up with contouring and overlining, most of the makeup trends we like today were invented a long time ago. Marilyn Monroe's famous lip was actually a product of careful overlining and lipstick layering. 
In case you don't know what overlining is, it's a makeup trick where you overdraw your lips with a lip liner (or in some cases lipstick) to make them look bigger an fuller. When done right overlining can bring so much to a makeup look and make any lip shape look incredible. 

Here are some tips on how to do it right and avoid the infamous duck face, a well known side effect of lip overdrawing.

Pick the liner colour carefully It all depends of the look you want to achieve. Maybe you want retro inspired lip with dark pencil and nude lips, ombre lip, or just your regularly bold lip. Whatever the case, make sure your lip liner and lipstick go well together. Usually it looks the most natural if they are the same colour, but some experimenting never hurt nobody, for example nude lipstick and brown lip liner can look amazing together.

Make sure your lips are hydrated Chapped lips are never a good look, especially with a lot of lipstick on top. Exfoliate the lips (I like to do it a night before) and apply a small amount of lip balm before you start doing your makeup.

Apply foundation over the lips Before you start with your lip colour, cover your lips with foundation. You don't have to do this with every lip colour, but I find it gives a nice polished look, makes your overdrawn lips look more real and prevents lipstick smudging.

Line the whole lips If you only outline the lips with a liner and then apply lipstick on the rest of the lips you'll end up with not so attractive look when the lipstick comes off. To avoid this, first draw the line with a lip liner, and then colour the area inside the line. After that use your lipstick.

Be careful with the shape you are drawing This step is crucial, you need to make sure your lips are overdrawn just a bit and not weird or too big. You should only overdraw the area above and under your lips. You can make the Cupid's bow more prominent, or even make it flat. It's up too you. Just keep practicing and never overline the whole lips.

Blot lipstick if needed You don't have to blot matte or dry lipsticks, but if they are creamy or smudge easily you should blot the lips after you apply lipstick. For this step you can use a tissue, or powder. I usually blot with a tissue, or Artdeco Fixing powder.

What do you think, do you like overdrawing your lips?



Ako postoji trend u šminkanju koji će obeležiti ovaj period, onda je to definitivno precrtavanje usana. Naravno, tu su konturing, hajlajtovanje, strobing, ali nijedan od ovih trendova nije popularan kao precrtavanje. Kao i svi trendovi u šminkanju, on nije od juče. Iako se možda čini da je ovo izum modernih šminkera, većina današnjih trendova koje volimo nastali su pre dosta vremena. Poznate usne Merilin Monro zapravo su proizvod pažljivog iscrtavanja i slojeva karmina.
U slučaju da ne znate šta je precrtavanje usana, to je trik u šminkanju gde iscrtavate usne olovkom (u nekim slučajevima ružem) van njihovog prirodnog oblika da bi izgledale punije. Kada se uradi kako treba precrtavanje može da podigne šminku na potpuno novi nivo i da učini da svaki oblik usana izgleda neverovatno.

Ovo su neki trikovi pomoću kojih ćete pravilno da iscrtate usne i izbegnete pačje usne, dobro poznati kontraefekat precrtavanja usana.

Pažljivo birajte boju olovke za usne Dosta zavisi i od toga koji izgled želite da postignete. Možda usne u retro duhu sa tamnom olovkom i nude karminom, ombre usne, ili jarki karmin. Šta god da ste izabrali postarajte se da se olovka i karmin slažu. Obično najprirodnije izgleda ako su iste boje, ali malo eksperimentisanja ne može da škodi. Na primer, nude karmin i braon olovka mogu odlično da se slažu.

Hidrirajte usne Ispucale usne nikada ne izgledaju dobro, pogotovo kada se preko njih nanese nekoliko slojeva karmina. Uradite piling (ja volim to da uradim veče pre šminkanja) i nanesite malu količinu balzama za usne pre nego što počnete sa šminkanjem.

Popunite cele usne Ako olovkom iscrtate samo ivice usana i onda nanesete karmin završićete sa čudnim izgledom kada se karmin skine. Da biste ovo izbegli prvo iscrtajte usne, zatim obojite olovkom prostor između linije. Posle toga nanesite karmin.

Budite pažljivi oko oblika koji iscrtavate Ovaj korak je ključan, morate da dobijete oblik usana koji je precrtan ali nije čudan i prevelik. Treba da precrtate samo deo iznad i ispod usana. Deo iznad gornje usne možete dodatno da naglasite, ili da izravnate. Zavisi od vas. Samo dosta vežbajte i nikada ne precrtavajte cele usne. 

Matirajte karmin ako je potrebno Ne morate ovo da radite sa mat i suvim karminima, ali ako su kremasti i lako se razmazuju trebalo bi da ih matirate na kraju. Za ovaj korak možete da koristite maramicu, ili puder. Ja obično matiram maramicom, ili za to koristim Artdeco Fixing powder.

Šta vi mislite da li volite da iscrtavate usne?
