Natural Beauty: Keeping Your Lips in Line


Given the fact that we basically wear the clothing of a teenage boy on the reg, it should come as no surprise that our beauty routine often resembles that of our pubescent counterpart. In this series we want to highlight our favorite products that keep our makeup routine as carefree as possible. 

This fall we are embracing lip liner. And before there is any confusion, we are leaving thickly lined lips to Kylie Jenner. What we are saying is that a touch of lip liner applied appropriately can go miles in adding just the right amount of “oompf” to your natural beauty without much else. To achieve our favorite look choose a color that most closely resembles the natural color of your skin. Don’t go overboard, stay calm, line and fill. Add a swipe of your favorite balm and then pucker up those soup coolers and head out the door. No lipstick, no sticky gloss. Just you and your natural beauty.

Not sure which liner to use? Laura Mercier makes a pretty killer pencil (HERE) and, for those on a budget, MAC’s Artificially Wild Lip Pencil in “Oak” (HERE) more than does the trick.

TOMBOY KC is a fashion and lifestyle blog written by actress Katie Cassidy and pint-sized real-life friend, Lynsey Eaton. Focused on personal style that is, well, personal, TKC is a place for smart and opinionated (read: sarcastic) women to join together and accumulate stilettos while collectively wearing their sneakers…everywhere. Self proclaimed nomads, when the girls aren't traveling for work or buying two of everything (one apiece, you see), you can find them sitting on Lynsey's couch eating pizza and drinking champagne in men's pajamas while waxing poetic about the present state of culottes. Feel free to come on over.
