Have you ever tried to play around with your lip shape? It's crazy to see how much your face changes with a fuller upper lip or lining a little narrower to get a Marilyn Monroe pout. Maybe you don't want to make any drastic changes, but you just want to add a little bit more shape or fullness. Now is the time to grab some lip liners and try these tutorials to learn how to shape your lips.

Herein, she lays down the ground rules for getting your lip liner game on point, and how to keep it within the lines (aka no color bleed)."
