Ombré Lip Tutorial
We've fallen head over heels in love with the ombré look! We saw it in hair and in nails and the ombré lip is the next big thing!

It's not only super easy and fast to do but the ombré lip actually creates the illusion that your lips are plumper- always a good thing for us born with 'less-than-Angelina' type lips. The ombré lip is recreated with very few items and in only a couple of steps. Want this glam look for yourself? We've got you covered!
What You'll Need:
1. Two Lipsticks, one in darker shade and the other in light shade
For this, we used Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Sultry Sable and Joe Fresh Cream Lipstick in Bare
2. Lip liner in similar or same shade as the dark lipstick
For this, we used Amuse Ultra Fine Lip Liner in Cabaret
3. Lip Brush
For this, we actually used an eye shadow blending brush and found it just as good! We used E.L.F. Professional Eye Shadow Brush
Step 1: Line your lips to give definition and to help create an outline to follow with your lipstick.
Step 2: Fill in your lips with the darker shade of lipstick.
Step 3: Apply some of the lighter shade of lipstick onto your brush.
Step 4: Going from the inside of the lip use quick and light dabbing motions to brush on the lighter shade. The idea to create a gradient, the lips should be dark on the outside and bottom area and fade into the light shade in the middle.
Et voilà- your ombre lip is finished just like that! This look is totally wearable for day or night by just a simple switch of the lipstick colour. While we tried out a deep mauve colour, an office or day time look could be easily achieved with a lighter pink or red.
What do you think of this trend? Will you try it out?

This looks great on you! i got some great lip colours recently that'll be perfect for this. Im definitely going to have to try it out
Great look especially if you want the look of fuller lips. I've also done this using a slightly darker lip liner and blending it in with the lighter lip stick.
Im interested in trying it out... not sure how others will react to it though! I know a lot of people hate the mismatched lipliner look.
This looks great! Thanks for the tutorial I'm going to give it a try soon.
Thanks for lovely comments!
This looks fantastic, I wish I had the patience to do this on a regular basis XD!
I think this looks really great if done properly. Alexandra, you did a great job! It makes the lips look bigger. I think the important thing is to make sure the lighter colour isn't too much lighter or it could look like your lipstick is just in the process of wearing off like you just ate something.
I love those colours! It gives the lips depth.
