Ombre Lips







I'm sure you're all familiar with this new trend - ombre lips. If not, it is basically using more than one lipstick shade to get the ombre effect which is gradually going from darker to lighter color. It is supposed to give depth to the lips and make them look fuller. Honestly, at first glance it looks kinda interesting, but on second thought i don't really like it. I think it looks messy and it's definitely not worth the hype.
I tried two different looks, and these are the products i've used, but after trying it out i'm now sure that this trend it's just not my cup of tea.
My method is very simple, i just outlined my lips with the darkest color i chose. Then i applied the lighter lipstick all over my lips, starting from the middle. Then i gently rubbed my lips together which helped blending the two colors. Rubbing your lips together or using a lipstick brush for blending is the most important move, because the transition between the colors is gonna be more subtle. And finally i used concealer in the center of my lips for enhancing the ombre effect.
And finally... Does this trend look interesting? Maybe. Is it worth the effort? Definitely not.
