How To Do An Ombre Lip.

The ombre Lip is a great way to add a unique touch to your usual makeup routine and it can be done with so many different colors to create a variety of looks like vampy, bright or bold. For me the Mac Nightmoth lip liner is a must when creating ombre lips and can be mixed with so many coloured lip sticks to create the perfect ombre look. Although a similar deep burgundy shade could also be used!

Here is my attempt at ombre with the Mac Nightmoth lip liner, Mac Frost Rihanna Viva Glam 1 lipstick and Estee Lauder Wet Cranberry Pure Colour Gloss.

The trick with ombre is to use a different colour on the lip line and than in the centre. I would suggest taking the colour on the lip line from the outside corners 1cm towards the centre like so on each edge (to create two side ways triangles) to allow the lip liner to become more prominent and create more of an ombre effect. Here is what my lips look like before I added the lipstick and lip gloss.

When adding the lip stick I mainly focused on applying the lip stick on the centre of the lips and blending it slightly where they overlapped. Using a lip brush definitely helped as it stopped the lipstick and lip liner from becoming messy as they are such dark and noticeable colours!

Here’s what I used:

The ombre lip is my favourite lip look to do right now and it doesn’t have to just stop with red lipstick, you can use pink, nude, blue, green, anything! Here is a look I did the the Mac Nightmoth lip liner once again and Mac Pink Plaid lipstick. It created a purplish sort of effect.

A deep burgundy lip liner is very versatile as its dark enough to create the ombre effect but not too overpowering that it smudges every where.
