Overling | How celebrities Use Lip Liner to Fake a Fuller Pout
it’s no secret that liner is the trick to creating the illusion of fuller lips. In fact, using a lip pencil to overline your lips is a classic hack, dating back to Clara Bow in the ’20s and seen again on runways (and on celebs everywhere) in the ’90s.
