Ombre Lips: How To
Hello everyone! I'm doing something a little different today, a 'tutorial' style post on how to get ombre lips. Ombre is a huge trend this year, and is the graduation of colour from dark to light, or vice versa.
Today I'm going to show you how to do pink ombre lips - darker on the outside, and light pink in the centre of the lips. Not only does this look really unusual, the lighter centre creates the illusion that your lips are much fuller than they really are!
You will need:
A dark pink lip liner, I used ELF Studio Lip Liner in Fuchsia
A dark pink lipstick, I used MAC's Girl About Town
A light pink lipstick, I used MAC's Viva Glam GaGa
1. Start by lining your lips with the dark lip liner, go the whole way round the outside, but don't fill your lips in.
2. Then use the dark pink lipstick to begin filling your lips at the corners, working your way towards the centre but stopping about half way in.
3. Take the light pink lipstick and fill in the centre of your lips.
4. Smack your lips together softly to blend the colours together, and there we have it! Ombre lips that give the illusion of bigger, fuller lips.
