Ombre Lips #3 – Horizontal - Tutorial

Follow me on Facebook

There is the final one of my tri-series to Ombre Lips. Well, its final until I find something new and interesting soon. Meanwhile here is the Ombre Lips in Horizontal.

Those who have missed my last 2 Ombre lips posts here is a quick recap:

Ok let’s begin. Here is the stuff I used.

  • 1.       Maybelline Baby Lips to condition my lips
  • 2.       Garnier BB Cream base to my lips.
  • 3.       Colorbar Soft Touch Citrene
  • 4.       Faces Magenta
  • 5.       Mac Viva Glam 1
  • 6.       Vega Lip Filler Brush

How did I do this? Here we 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. Wear a base on your lips. It could be your foundation, BB/CC Cream, Tint moisturiser, compact.

Step 2: Take your lightest color among the 3 colors your pick and mark the first and the last 1 third corner of the lips. 

Step2: Fill the lips with the same color. I picked Colorbar Soft Touch Citrene in this look. It should look something like this.

Step3:  Fill in the center upper and lower lip with the 2nd darkest color you picked. I chose Faces Magenta for myself.

Step 4: Fill in the center of your mouth with the darkest color you pick. I chose MAC Viva Glam 1. Note just dab it only at the center on your mouth to create the shadow effect.

And here is the final look. I kinda like this look as it gives a lovely full mouth effect to the lips.
