The Secret To Nadine Njeim’s Full Lips

It appears that everybody’s doing it—enhancing their pouts with a technique called overdrawing. This is an age-old practice, which uses a lip liner to trace around the outermost edge of the lip perimeter. Kylie Jenner, Beyoncé, and former Miss Lebanon-turned actress Nadine Njeim have all practiced the aforementioned makeup habit, which works particularly well with the new brand of nude shades making their way into the lipstick spotlight.

The Dos & Don’ts
Do take down the color of your natural lip shade with a little concealer.
Don’t attempt this with a blunt lip liner.
Do ensure that your lip pencil is a color match to your lipstick shade.
Don’t try this with dark lipstick or red lipstick.
Do fill in your pout with the lip liner before applying your lipstick.
Don’t stray too far out or you will look like a clown.
