Ombre Lips Tutorial

I know you have heard of ombre hair but how about ombre lips? Ombre means "fade". Ombre lips is a gradation of colors from light to dark to create fuller lips.

Ombre lips tutorial:

  1. Prepare your lips by exfoliating and moisturizing it
  2. For longer lasting effect, dab a powder foundation before applying the lip colors
  3. Start with your favorite lipstick at the center
  4. Outline your lips with a lip pencil
  5. Blend by putting your lips together 
  6. Add a gloss in the center for 'fuller lips' effect

 Makeup products you need for Ombre Lips:

  1. Lip pencil
  2. Lipstick 
  3. Shimmer

ombre lips look #1

For this first look, I used two lip pencils (Etude House #13 & #19) instead of lipstick and a lip pencil, and a shimmer/gloss (Hello Kitty).

ombre lips look #2

For look #2 , I just interchanged the colors of the outline and the lip color. The colors turned out more vibrant and more visible.

Which look would you choose?

ombre lips look #3

If you are as daring and crazy as I am, why not try the gradient effect from side to side. I applied MAC Lip pencil in Cherry and Etude House Play 101 Pencil #13. Noticed that I used lip pencil on all three looks because it is easier to control, less messy and less room for mistake.
