Ombré Lip Tutorial

Hi lovelies!

How has your weekend been? I've not been well at all :( but luckily took the photos for this tutorial the other day so you don't need to see my ill-ridden exterior! Ha ha! So anyways, u thought it would be a nice idea to attempt an ombré lip tutorial. I have a really thin top lip so thought an ombré effect would give the illusion of a fuller upper lip! Let me know in the comments if you think I succeeded or not!


For the ombré effect, I see MAC's pro long wear lip cream in 'overtime' and Rimmel's lip liner in 'wine'.


The swatch at the top is of overtime and the swatch underneath is wine.


To start, I lined my lips with the liner.


Then I blended. I feel this is key at achieving a more natural look.


I then filled the corners of my lips in with the liner.


Then blended again, to again achieve a more natural look when it comes to blending the two colours.


I then applies 'overtime' in the centre of my top and lower lip to give the illusion of bigger lips.



This is the finished look. I apologise for the quality of the close ups. I used my iphone and it sometime blurs a bit when I zoom in! So what do you beauties think of the final look? Are you guys gonna try this tutorial? Let me know in the comments below! 

xoxo
