Ombre Lips # 2 – Top Down

Follow me on Facebook here

Hope you enjoyed the Ombre-lips #1-Out to In-Tutorial. Have you tried it?

Here is another fun way to Ombre Lips. This time its Top Down or Vertical.

Again there are 2 ways to it.
  • Dark to nothing – Top Down (Dark at the top and fades down to bare lips)
  • Fading or varying colours – Top Down (Different colours fade top down )

I am trying the second one today. And here we go.The colors fade from top to bottom. 

Ombre Lip #2 - Top Down

Things I used: (left to right)

  • 1.       MAC Viva Glam 1
  • 2.       Colorbar Creme Touch Sienna a Magic
  • 3.       Faces Magenta
  • 4.       Mac Dazzleglass
  • 5.       Vega Lip Filler

Ok, here is how you get this look.Lets begin. 

Step 1:  Condition lips. Moisturise it well with your favourite lip balm. Exfoliate with a scrub or just use cotton swab and rub on the lips.

Step2:  Apply any foundation or concealer to BB/CC Cream. Here I used my Clinique CC Cream. This is to give a nice base to the lips and even out the natural lip color. (I know it looks ewwwww... but it works)

Step3: Line your upper lips with the darkest color you pick. Note just line the half of the upper lip.Like this.

Step 4: Fill in the center of your lips. Upper lip bottom  half and lower lip top half. Something like this.

Step5: Fill in the third color to the bottom half of the lower lip and shape it well.

Simple, isn’t it? Here is the finished look. Hope you like it.
