Beauty Tip Tuesday – How to Wear An Ombre Lip

Ombre seems to be the hottest trend in the last year -- not only with hair color & highlights but with lipsticks and glosses as well. During my first photo shoot as a makeup artist I did an ombre lip on my model, Chantal, below and since then I have loved this new look! I'm sharing my tips on how to do this look at home (and sharing my secret ingredient!) on how to apply with different color variations.


How to wear:

  1. Line the lip with a pencil liner, apply a medium to dark color around on the outer lip and add a lighter more shimmery color to the center for some pop.
  2. Take a lip brush with clear gloss applied and very gingerly blend the center outward just a tad so you can see a contrast. The idea is to go slow and blend so you don’t make the lip one color.
  3. My secret - Take a shimmery eye shadow in any complimentary color and dab it in the center of the lip with a sponge brush for some extra pop! Yes eye shadow can be worn on the lips and looks fantastic!
  4. Below are three looks done well that anyone can wear and make a new statement with. Enjoy :)
