The week flies by so fast ’cause here we are at Day 14 of our #20daylipstickchallenge! This blog challenge is in collaboration with the gorgeous ladies, Rae of Scatterbraintures, Elaine of FlabsRule and Dinna! Katsy and Nat also joined in so please visit their sites as well! We are posting each weekday about lipsticks, so don’t miss them!
Ombre Lip probably started in Korea because they love to wear a more natural look and they often use stains to achieve an ombre lip. I don’t really wear a lip combo, or ombre lip that much because it’s too fussy to do. I want a quick swipe and I am out the door. I have some ideas though if you are into them. The things you need are two lipsticks or lip products with complementing shades and there must be a light and a dark shade.
I have two sets to show you…
For this combo, I applied the Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey on the outside part of my lips. To achieve the deeper red shade in the inner lips, I applied Nichido Matte Lipstick in Runaway Red. These two lipsticks are very affordable because they cost only under 200 pesos each.
This next combo is using the Preview & Happy Skin Limited Edition Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte Lippies. They are shades that belong to the two ends of the spectrum but still perfect to pair with. I really don’t wear Too Cool on its own because it kind of washes me out, but if I add Hot Stuff in the inner lips, they become wearable! They are also matte finishes so they have a good staying power.
If you don’t have a light shade, you may use a concealer on the outside part of your lips. It works well too!
Are you into these ombre lip trend?
