Lip liner, once an outdated tool, is back in a big way. It's also incredibly useful by outlining the natural shape of your lips and preventing your lipstick from bleeding. Available in a variety of shades, this liner is sure to help complete any look.

Lip gloss


Revlon Colorstay Overtime Liquid Lipcolor, $11, Walgreens.com

Topping your lipstick off with a shiny gloss can amp up your glam factor and help your lipstick stay put longer. All 26 shades of this gloss add instant moisture and shine to your lips.

Lip stain


Covergirl Outlast Lip Stain, $8.50, Covergirl.com

A lip stain gives your pout a pretty flush of color that won’t fade as easily as lipstick or gloss can. The marker-like features of this lip pen make the application process simple and fun.

Lip balm


Maybelline Baby Lips, $4, Maybelline.com

To hydrate your lips and get a hint of color, try using a tinted moisturizing balm. This formula moisturizes your lips and helps them look and feel more healthy.

Lip exfoliator


e.l.f. Studio Lip Exfoliator, $3, CVS.com

Chapped lips can look even worse than they feel. To get rid of dryness and flakiness, exfoliate your lips once a month or as needed. This formula contains Vitamin E and Shea butter and is meant to be massaged into the lips in a circular motion.

Lip brush


Sonia Kashuk Lip Brush, $8, Target.com

Applying lipstick straight from the tube certainly works, but most makeup artists agree that a lip brush will guarantee the most professional-looking pout. This brush is retractable and helps create an even application every time.
