How to Achieve an Ombre Lips Using our Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Ombre means that it has two separate shades that are monochromatic. Ombre style has been popular with hair coloring, nail art, and yes LIPS too!

Ombre lips can look great, but if they're not done correctly, they can make you look pretty tacky! The trick to highlight lips is to try it out with your usual lip colors first. Play around with various colors that fit well together, and once you're pleased with the results, just move out into the open.

Step 1

Start by moisturizing your lip area with a good hydrating lip balm. If you have rough and flaky lips, I recommend applying a lip scrub or scrub your lips with a toothbrush prior to the use of a lip balm to smoothen and soften the lips. Then, apply a light concealer all over your lips to hide the darkness or any lip pigmentation that you may have. If you have fairly pink lips without any pigmentation then you can skip this step.

Step 2

Then, apply a red lipstick shade Marce or Joyce whichever shade you prefer. top it over your lips in the outer line area. Then take a lighter lip color either shade Ilene or Virgo in the center of your lips. Start blending it with your finger on a tapping motion and do it lightly or you can also blend it using a lip brush. 

Step 3

If you had some overlined accidents while putting the shades on your lips, do not worry! Just simply wipe it with Q tips or makeup remover wipes to clean it up. Apply concealer to the outer lines of your lips to define your lips and to make it look plumper.

Step 4

Optional, you can finish your art with a clear lip, gloss. And you are done! You can easily tweak the color of the lipsticks used in this ombre lips make up look guide. If you use stronger contrasting lipstick colors, such as pink and purple, the ombre effect provided will be more intense and vibrant. Since I wanted a wearable ombre look, I decided to go with slightly less contrasting lip colors.
