Reverse Ombré Lips

March 14, 2015 by Chic Glam Style - No Comments

New InfographicOmbré meaning gradient,two toned or transition from light to dark is a technique that has been highly popular in hair but is now also trending on lips and nails. With its slow fade it creates a gorgeous effect on your lips. There are many ways and colors to ombré your lips depending on how dramatic you want the effect to be. When it comes to makeup I mostly lean towards subtle. So when I saw the “reverse” pink ombré lip in photo, I just  loved how beautiful, effortless and subtle it looked.It’s really easy to do and can be worn during the day as well!

How to Reverse Ombré:

  • Begin with smooth bare lips
  • Apply concealer or nude lipstick
  • Apply dots of lipstick on the top and bottom lip in the inner part of the lips (don’t put too much)
  • Spread the lipstick across the lips using a lip brush
  • Blend the lipstick outwards using a lip brush (feather it out)
  • Optional: Apply clear gloss and highlight cupids bow with a highlighter. I didn’t add lip gloss,as I prefer the matte look better.

That’s it!

Hope these tips help!
