How to match lip liner and lipstick shades?
Matching lip liner and lipstick shades doesn't always have to be an exact match. In fact, having a contrast between the two can create a more effective lip look. The key is to keep them within the same colour family and undertones. Choose a lip liner that's one or two shades darker than your lipstick to add depth and definition to your lips.
What are the best lip liner and lipstick combos?
The best lip liner and lipstick combo all depends on the makeup look you’re trying to achieve. If you want your lips to be the statement, you can opt for a bolder shade combo. But if you’re going for a more natural everyday look, then a nude combo might be the way to go.

For example, if you want a more glossy finish, try layering on some Lipglass. This high-shine gloss adds extra dimension and moisture to your lips. Another option is to add Cremesheen Glass to your Cremesheen Lipstick combo. This product is a more subtle gloss that adds a hint of shine without overpowering your lip color.
