Ombré Lip Tutorial

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! ;)

STEP ONE:

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!

STEP TWO:

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.

STEP THREE:

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.

STEP FOUR:

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!

STEP FIVE:

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……

TAADAAAAAA!
