Defined Lips with Smashbox

I’m pretty unwavering when it comes to my makeup routine. All my looks, whether day or night,  involve the same products and techniques. However, when it comes to my lips, I absolutely love to experiment.  A fabulous lip colour is a priority when it comes to finishing off the perfect look, but the shape of my lips are paramount when it comes to achieving a look’s full potential—#SHAPEMATTERS.

We all have beautifully unique lips, but there are ways to perfect our pouts by enhancing our distinct features. Personally, I love a defined lip. I achieve a more defined pout by using my favourite lip linerAlways Sharp Lip Liner by Smashbox. Smashbox gives great tips and tricks on how we can get the lip shape of our dreams. Using their tips on achieving defined lips, I’ve created a little ‘how-to’ below:

I used Smashbox’s Always Sharp Lip Liner in True Red to line my lips. To intensify the colour and add dimension, I finished it off with Smashbox‘s Be Legendary Lip Lacquer in Orange Dream.

To achieve a flawless lip shape, we need a sharp lip liner. If you have an Always Sharp Lip Liner, you’ll never have to sharpen your liner again! This is because it’s self sharpening–how cool it that? The cap has a tiny built-in sharpener, so every time we twist the cap off, the tip of the liner gets pretty and pointy. Leave it to Smashbox to make our lives that much easier.


Smashbox has an extremely helpful “how-to” videos, where they actually show us how to achieve the ultimate lip shape. Check it out here!
