Whether you want to create the illusion of fuller lips or just have fun and experiment with your makeup looks, the ombre lip is a beauty trend that is very much here to stay.
Made up of a gradiation of colour, the ombre lip combines a darker colour on the outside of the lip with a lighter shade on the centre. The result gives the illusion of a fuller pout and is truly eye catching.
How to master an ombre lip
To help you master this statement look, we’ve put together a simple how-to guide to make sure your ombre lip looks perfect every time.
1. Choose your shade
You can create an ombre lip with pretty much any colour but choosing two complimentary shades is so important when creating your look. If you want to opt for a nude, choose a pale nude to flatter your skin tone and a slightly deeper brown-toned shade for the outside of your lips.
If you’re feeling bold, fuschia pink and classic red make perfect ombre lip options.
2. Line your lips
Begin by lining your lips with a deep lip liner in whatever shade you choose to create your ombre lip. We love using the Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencils as their ultra-soft, creamy formula makes them so blendable and easy to combine with other lip shades.
If your lips are a little uneven or you want to create the illusion of a fuller pout, extend your lip line slightly by overdrawing your lips, adding fullness where needed. Be careful not to take your lip line to far as to look unnatural.
