Though the lip liner has to be a bit darker than the lip color we chose, there should be slighter difference in the shades of these both and the difference should not be major.

This way, your lips will definitely not look dominating but would be molded into your beauty. The season itself is like that and our skin is porn to get dry, soon, despite we use adequate moisturizer.
