Does anyone know how to get this look without doing the whole heavy dark liner thing? Is this gloss or lipstick or what? Thanks In advance!

    My guess would be that it's a neutral pencil/lipstick with gloss slicked over it.

    Any of Kevyn Aucoin's books show neutral palettes like this and how to achieve the look. You might want to check it out. The key (if I remember correctly) is to use three similar shades of lip color - the liner being the darkest. You'll then want to apply the medium shade up to the liner, but really blending completely, leave an edge to it. The apply the lighest in the center of the top and bottom lip.

    Thank you so much ^_^ I wouldn't have thought to use three different colors... so much work for such a natural look

    One of my favorite lines ever from a movie is from Steel Magnolias. Dolly Parton's character says "there's no such thing as natural beauty". :wink:
