HOW TO CREATE AN OMBRE LIP

November 6, 2017 LIPS 0 Comments

What is ombre?

My trusty website Wikipedia defines Ombre as :

Ombré /ˈɒmbr/ (literally “shaded” in French) is the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark.In hair coloring, hair which has an ombre is said to be ombrée (of women) or ombré (of men). It has become a popular feature for hair coloring, nail art, and even baking, in addition to its uses in home decorating and graphic design.

Of course ombre has also found ints way into the beauty world. It is popularly seen in lipsticks and eyeshadow looks. So how exactly do you achieve an ombre look? Here’s how:

1.Prep your lips by exfoliating them and moisturizing with a lip balm or oil.

2.Decide the colour family you want to use.Whether different shades of brown, reds, pinks, oranges etc. The trick is to choose one dark shade and one light shade.

3.Apply the darker shade of lip liner or lipstick on the outline of your lips. You can apply it as thin or as thick as you want.

4.Blend that dark lip liner or lipstick to create a seamless transition.

5.Apply lighter lipstick at the centre of the lips and blend into the lip liner.

Another alternative is to apply the lighter lipstick all over your lips.Then use the darker pencil/lipstick over the lighter lipstick. Appy this lipstick on the edges of the lips and voila! You can use concealer or foundation outside your lips to make an even neater ombre lipstick.

If you really want a juicy-looking pout that pops, apply clear lip gloss over your ombre lips.
