How To Combine Lip Liner And Lipstick. Makeups (Lip Looks)

Published

on

The key to a flawless, pigmented lip is a bomb lip liner (go ahead and quote us). Lip liners stop lipsticks from feathering, lock them in place all day and are a great way to make a shade work. Pairing a deeper lip liner with a shade that isn’t quite right will help you refresh and reuse the lippies you haven’t reached for in a while.

When it comes to playing matchmaker with your lip products, there’s lots of ways to go about it. You can go for a matched pair of lippies for a bolder finish or choose a deeper liner to complement a lighter lipstick.

Peep some favourite pairings, ahead:

NYX Suede Matte Lippie in cold brew
A pre-matched pair, this two lippies ae the same shade so you canamplify and lock in your lipcolour. This is a great everyday option. It’ll last (almost) all day.

NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Earth tone & Soft Matte Lip Cream
For that dusty mauve look you’ll love, try this combination. Together, they make a pretty neutral shade with dimension.

NYX Lip Lingerie Lippie Duo in Teddy & Cappuccino
These two lippies have opposing undertones we mixed together, they balance each other out.

"Moringa seeds are obtained from the pods of the Moringa plant (Moringa Oleifera) or the drumstick tree, native to Northern India. Fresh and raw moringa seeds are quite tender, but as soon as they get dried, they become hard and start to resemble small beans. They are greyish-white in colour with unique wing-like structures. They can be steamed, boiled or roasted for various purposes," says Dr. Divya Choudhary, Chief Dietitian, Max Super Speciality Hospital. According to Dr. Manoj K. Ahuja, Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj, "Moringa is a nutrient-dense plant that is rich in vitamins, calcium, iron and essential amino acids. It can benefit the body in a number of ways." Widely known as “drumstick tree” in India, moringa goes by different names in different countries and regions. It is known as ‘Sahijan’ in Hindi, “Munaga’ in Telugu, ‘Murungai’ in Tamil.

"Did you know that a single serving of moringa has almost three times the amount of iron as spinach? This is especially important for vegetarians/vegans or those who suffer from low iron issues, as the body needs iron to enrich the blood and carry oxygen to our muscles, organs and tissues," adds Dr. Choudhary.
