Lining your lips gives a good support to your lipstick, so for giving the lasting effect,draw the line along the edges of your lips with the lip liner. Make sure its colour is darker than the natural colour of your lips. Start with the centre of upper lip. For thin lips, broaden the edges to make your lips look thicker and fuller. For thick or naturally full lips line within the edges.

The most common choice is classical red. Its gives a classy and fabulous look to the bride. If you want to give a natural and lighter effect you can choose light pink shades. Apart from red and pink shades, you can choose berry colour with shiny touch, coral shade and some shades of orange. Well, all depending on your dress and skin tone.
