If you haven’t noticed I’ve been REALLY into ombre lips lately. I don’t know if it’s because I’m so indecisive about what color lipstick I want to wear or if I just like the idea of wearing more than one shade at a time, but one thing I am sure about is the fact that I LOVE the way they look! Maybelline was kind enough to send me their entire line of Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liners and the second they arrived I knew exactly the kind of post I wanted to do with them!
There are many ways to do an ombre lip, but today I’m sharing the easiest most fool proof way I’ve done it! Combining two shades (or more if you’re feeling daring) of lipliner with a sheer lipstick on top, is the best way to ensure a bold lip with the perfect ombre fade! Scroll through for my step by step photo tutorial for how to do an ombre lip!
Take your darker lip liner shade and liner the outer portion of your top and bottom lips.
Color in the inner part of your top and bottom lips with the lighter colored lip liner. You may need to add more of the darker color too.
Take a sheer similar colored lipstick and apply over your lip liner. I would suggest dabbing on the color or applying it with your finger to blend so there are no harsh lines.
That’s it!! How easy was that? Leave me a comment and let me know what tutorial you’d like to see next!
