Loving the red ombre lip!

Of course, that’s simpler stated than done.

One of those patterns I always “pin” however never wear is an ombre lip. I chose to grow a pair as well as just try it, as well as it turns out, I like it! as well as it [turned out to be] quite wearable too! I might walk around using this as well as not feel like a crazy person, even though that’s in some cases a liberating feeling.


I like exactly how customizable ombre lips are; you can actually do whatever colors you want, as well as make them as remarkable as you want. For my lips right here I chose to choose red as well as coral as well as relatively subtle.

Line your lips, as well as bring in the color somewhat at the inner corners.

Now select a lighter however coordinating lipstick color, as well as put that in the center of your lips. Then, blend it into the liner.

Go back as well as forth between the lip liner as well as the lipstick a couple of times to make sure the two kind of melt into each other. If you want a much more remarkable lip look, select colors with a great deal of contrast between each other! I selected a much more orange-toned lighter red from the Chris Chang x MAC collection called MAC Vermillion Vee (this one is restricted edition, however it’s still available, so snatch it up if you want it now!)

At this point you’ve got a bit of an ombre lip going, however I desired a bit more. Going a few steps lighter, I utilized Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic for a bright pop of coral in the center. Again, go back as well as forth between this as well as the previous color to truly blend them together well.
