Creating a Holiday Makeup Look with Ombre Lips!

It’s the holiday season and that means lots of parties, dressing up and experimenting with your holiday makeup. This year, I want to try the newest trend in makeup which is “ombre” lips. That means using two to three colors to create a 3D effect. This look was seen on Kenneth Cole’s runaway like the model pictured above.  There simple steps you can do to achieve this look!

  1. Before starting, make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturized. Also, to prevent the color from bleeding, use a clear lip pencil on the perimeter of your lips. Try our Prévia CLEAR WATERPROOF LIP PENCIL.
  2. Line your lips with a medium shade and fill a little towards the center. This will also help define your lips. Try our Lip Pencil in GLACIER.
  3. Next take a darker lip pencil and do a second outline but blend into the inner lips with a lip brush. Remember to leave space for the first color. Our Lip Pencil in TANGO works wonderfully.
  4. The last step will be a “highlighting” lipstick to go on the poutier part of your lips. Carefully put on Prévia Lipstick in HIP using a lip brush and blend well.

Finish off your look with a minimal eye makeup look. Try a winged eyeliner with our Liquid Eye Liner in ONYX and dabbing eyeshadow in WISPER on the corner of your eyes to brighten them up.
