How to Overline Your Lips the Right Way, According to a Makeup Artist

People have done some crazy sh*t in pursuit of plump, full lips (Kylie Jenner Challenge, anyone?). In my younger and more vulnerable years, I admit to partaking in some questionable overlining. After backstalking through old Facebook pictures and practically gagging over my cartoonish attempts at overdrawing, I was afraid to pick up a lip pencil again. But Valentine's Day is coming up, and I want plush, pillow-like lips for the occasion. (Even though I currently have no plans other than curling up and watching the courtroom scene of Legally Blonde on repeat).

That's why I reached out to celebrity makeup artist Hrush Achemyan, who's a true overlining wizard. Her talents have graced the lips of Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Christina Aguilera. But it was her work on Sarah Hyland at the Golden Globes that really caught my attention. Though Sarah's lips are clearly drawn out, the look somehow appears natural. I asked Hrush what's what.
