How to get Ombre Lips!!

Published September 5, 2015 by sarahsmith1988

What you need: 

  • You’re fav lipstick
  • Darker shade lip liner (or darker lipstick and brush) 
  • Shimmery light coloured powdered eye shadow 
  • Small flat brush that you can wash 

I used a unbranded lipstick

Step 1:

First apply lipstick as normal, dont worry if it is not perfect as this corrects later on

Step 2:

Line you’re lips with the darker coloured lip liner (or lipstick) paying special attention to the corners of your lips.

Step 3:

Blend liner into the medium coloured lipstick by drawing really short feathery strokes from the outside in. 

Step 4:

Add the highlight, take the brush and light eye shadow powder and dab a little right in the middle of your lips and upper lip, then blot out using your finger tip. The eye shadow powder gives the look of light, or a really bright shimmer.

If I want my lips to be the main feature, I apply a subtle bronzer to my cheeks and use neutral colours for my eyes, this way my lips will stand out! 

You can also experiment with other colours for example: Orange, red and gold would go really well for a sun set theme or different shades of pink for a romantic look, reds and golds can also be used for a christmas theme. You can go as daring as you want to, or as subtle as you want!

    • I think it would of turned out better if I did a bit more blending with the darker liner. I do love to use the shimmer pigment powder though and not just for the ombre look. Also for just dabbing on plain lipstick gives lips a lovely shimmer for parties 🙂 thank you for your comment xox
