Hello world! Back with an ombré lip tutorial. Ombré, I feel so french saying that word hehe…
I wanted to show you guys another quick pictorial that was easy to follow. Now, of course you don’t have to go with the bold purple colors I chose for this look lol. Go with whatever colors you’re comfortable with. Rule of thumb is to just choose a lip liner that’s a few shades darker than your lipstick. Easy enough, right? Let me know what you guys think! ;)
Benefit’s Stay Flawless 15-hour Primer
MAC Lip Liner in Currant
Milani Lipstick in Uptown Mauve
Hard Candy’s Glamoflauge Concealer in Medium
Start off with clean, smooth lips. (Exfoliate to rub off all those dead skin cells!) And then apply your primer. Yes, there are lip primers out there, but I just used the primer I use on the rest of my face. This will ensure that the lipstick goes on smoothly and lasts longer!
Begin to apply your lip liner! This is the most time consuming step lol. Yes, you should try to be neat, but a little trick I like to use is to line right outside your lips to create the illusion of fuller lips! If it ends up a little messy, no worries. We will go back with the concealer in the end to clean everything up.
It’s looking kinda messy but it’ll look a lot better haha. Start filling those babies in! But be sure to use a lighter hand as you get closer to the center of your lips.
My favorite step that brings everything together lol. Apply your lipstick over the lip liner! You should see a nice gradual fade from light to dark!
Time to clean up and make those edges nice and clean. Take a lip brush and use your concealer to go around the edges of your lips. And……
You’ve got yo ombré lips!
Pretty nice, don’t ya think?! Lol I hope you guys liked this one!
