You know what I hate? Those women who put lip liner on that is several shades darker than their lipstick. Don’t they know it makes them look like clowns? Honestly, if there was one makeup manouver that looks like utter shit on everyone who does it, this is it. It’s worse than baby blue eyeshadow. It’s worse than clumpy mascara. It’s worse than goth eyeliner painted to look like an ankh at the corner of your eye. Just stop it!
I think the theory is it creates lip “shadow” so your lips look fuller – like, the edges are darker because they’re super far receeded from the middle fleshy parts, which are huge and pillowy and sexy like Angelina Jolie’s. Alas, the human eye is not so easily fooled, and you just look like you drew a circle around your mouth so horny drunk truckers with ten bucks to burn would know where to aim.
(See how pissy I get when I someone tells me no dog?)
