Everyone has enthralled to the Ombre Hair trend. I wanted to try out something INSANELY different, OMBRE LIPS!
I did my normal foundation routine for this look.
Shu Uemura’s Base control
Pure Beauty BB cream
This is once again my favorite BB cream because I’ve been breaking out lately. Ever since I threw out my last BB cream and started using this one again, I noticed my skin felt and looked better.
Rimmel Cool Matte Foundation
I’ve been using this as my concealer and I love it because it doesn’t crease.
Yellow MAC Pigment
I used a yellow pigment in the inner corners of my eyes to make them look brighter.
Violet MAC Pigment
I used the darker pigment on the outer corners of my eyes to give me that cat eye effect.
Canmake Shading Powder
I contoured my nose and cheeks for and an emphasized nose bridge and cheekbones.
I highlighted my nose bridge and my cheekbones to make it stand out. A good substitute for this is a white eyeshadow.
FOR THE LIPS!
For the Ombre lips, you should have 2 lip colors. I used:
MAC Light Pink Lipstick
A light pink lipstick. This color is for the outer part of my lips. I simply applied it all over my lips avoiding the inner part. Which is this area:
Once you’re done with that, you’ll have your lips looking like this:
MAC Violet Lipstick
Then I applied a violet lipstick on the inner part of my lips.
And so, this happened:
Blend the two colors using dabbing motions with your finger. And you’re done!
Enjoy your Ombre Lips!
