In an interesting turn of events in the beauty world, the ombre trend has been upgraded to lip makeup. Celebrities including Janhvi Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Kylie Jenner love an ombre lip moment. And it isn't a new hit. Ombre lips were a big hit in the late '90s and early 20s, but the trend is bigger and better than ever before now. Up until very recently, Janhvi Kapoor was seen turning heads at the India Couture Week 2023 for Gaurav Gupta's show with her ombre lips on the ramp. But what exactly is ombre lips? The trend involves combining two lip colours and blending them to create a shade or shadow effect. While it sounds like the work of professionals, desirable ombre lips are a cakewalk with our easy-peasy guide. The best part about achieving the ombre look is that you can do it with your usual make-up products.
For a quick makeup tutorial on Ombre Lips, watch the video below and follow the steps.
1. Clean And Moisturise Lips
Just like how you prep your skin before beginning with the base makeup, you must make sure that your lips are properly cleansed and moisturised. And remember to be generous with your lip balm.
2. Apply An Even Base
Before you go ahead with the lip colour, you need to create an even canvas using a concealer, so that your lip colour can pop out. If you are towards the dry skin type, reach out for a dewy finish concealer.
3. Lip Liner
Once you have covered your lips with concealer, it's time for the lip liner. Ombre lips mean achieving the dramatic two-toned effect, wherein one layer should be typically darker than the other layer. Therefore, pick a dark shade of lip liner or lipstick to line your lips. After your lips are lined properly, you can use your fingers to fill it in halfway through to create that shaded effect.
4. Lighten The Middle
While for the base you can go with medium-toned lipstick, go back to picking your concealer and create a light effect in the middle and blend to a seamless finish. If you wish, add a layer of gloss top it off and hit it to pucker up fabulously.
