How to change the shape of your lips with the overlining technique? A highly effective asymmetrical lip contour
It is actually about cheating on the shape and thickness of the upper lip and the lower lip and correcting the asymmetry of the lips. The technique consists of redrawing the outline of the lips with a lip pencil. You say this is nothing new! You are probably right, but the technique of overlining is quite different. It consists of going beyond the natural shape of the mouth. Moreover, many stars are fond of it and adopt this make-up technique like Jennifer Lopez, to have sublime lips.
It is therefore a question of slightly thickening the contour of the lips by drawing a line which goes beyond it subtly; no more than 1 or 2 millimetres. For that :
- Use your cream bronzer that you apply with a brush on the upper edge of your lips, especially at the level of the cupid’s bow;
- Draw a line with your traditional lip liner, going slightly beyond the outline, then blend with a brush;
- Then apply your lipstick.
It is also possible to apply a concealer cream or a highlighter on the upper edge of the lips and on the corners of the lower lip. Then draw the outline of your lips, going slightly beyond it with a pencil, then apply your lipstick of the same shade, preferably clear and shiny. Light colors are perfect for small and thin lips and make them look fuller.
This make-up technique is an interesting alternative to aesthetic medicine which remains risky when it is not practiced by a cosmetic surgery professional. On its own, the latter can correct the asymmetry of the lips and the thinning of the lips.

We move on to pencil and lipstick
Choose the pencil that comes closest to your lip color or the rouge you have chosen. Pro tip: Put it in the fridge before cutting it so that the mine is sharp and the line more precise. Clever no!
Start by tracing your lips starting with the cupid’s bow. then start from the corners to join the heart of the lips by penciling small lines along the line. Do the same with the lower lip. This is the technical step!
Then color your lips with the pencil by filling the inside of the lips. Use a brush to make your job easier.
Then comes the step of applying lipstick. For this, follow the same process of the pencil, but this time draw your brush for a perfect application. For better hold, pinch your lips with a tissue after applying the first coat. Powder your lips, a second coat of lipstick is in order and you’re done! The lip makeup will be great and will last longer!
Tip from make-up artists: in the event of a slip-up, concealer will be your saviour. Just put a little on a cotton swab to erase an asymmetrical line or a crossing out. And your lipstick will be perfect. Add a gloss in the middle of the lips for a rounded and fresh look at the same time.
