Dark lip liner light lipstick

I am watching one of the performers n the Disney Christmas Parade and at  first I thought she had a mustache above her lip, but in reality it was a very dark lip-liner and a pale lipstick, it liked pretty bad IMHO.

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

I hate that look. A local news station has all the female news and weather reporters wearing this look. It’s hideous.

 As the other poster mentioned , so 1990's .  Guess, the look is back  as is all the metallic  colored clothes & shoes & bags. I remember matching my liner to the lip color.  I would use the liner  to cover all over my lips , then I would apply my lipstick  to prevent the  funny light lip look.  I never wore a lighter lipstick with a drk lip liner. However , if you drank or ate or licked your lips the listick color would fade  and you would be left with  that funny goofy  look  .

There is a Merle Norman store in our area with a woman who still wears her lipstick this way.

I agree it's not attractive, but if the person's in a parade (essentially the same as a performer), it could be theatrical makeup. That's overdone so features are exaggerated and more visible. Ballerinas, opera stars, etc. ,if seen up close, look like they're in drag.

I only use transparent liner (from Avon).

That was out when it was in and to wear it today is so bad.  Today you wear a clear lip liner or match one to your lipstick color.

@I am still oxox 

Yes I remember this trend . Model  Naomi Campbell made this  look very popular in the 90s.. I agree many time preformers need to exagerate their makeup.
