Lip Trend- Two-tone‚Äč Lip Color

Like the Ombre hair color? and now try the Ombre lip color trend or two-toned lip color. The two-toned lip trend got it’s popularity a few years ago, and now it is back in the trend and it is being hugely used by the fashion designers, models, celebrities, and for everyday looks. Ombre lips are basically gradation of colors, same color but fading from dark to light from outer lip to the inner lip or vice versa. Sure, it seems like a tricky makeup trend, but surprisingly it is very easy to follow. And the looks will be totally different, if try with the pink-orange shades then the lip will look like the stains we get after eating a popsicle.

THE STEPS OF OMBRE OR TWO-TONED LIPS-

The first step is the color selection. To decide the colors, I like to pick one color that will be my main lip color. Then I choose a color that is either lighter than my base color or darker than my base color.  But it has to be similar in hue.

The main technique to do this lip trend is to use the gradient from outer most edge to the innermost part of the lips or even going horizontally across such that one corner of the mouth is lighter in color than the other corner.

The simplest form of ombre lips is to use the lighter shade on one lip and the darker shade on the other lip and then blending them in at the inner side of the lips. This technique is hugely popular on the runway shows.

Another technique of using the colors is to line the lips with a lip liner that is one shade darker than the base lipstick color.  First, use the dark shades little thicker on the corners and gradually making thinner to the curves of lips. Then apply the base lipstick to the lips leaving out the innermost part of the lips. Finally, use the lighter lipstick and top off with clear gloss to even it all out.

Many brands have already launched some beautiful shades of two-toned lipsticks. I have tried the Laneige Two-toned lipstick, I am really impressed, it is a glossy one, and it gives me a bright stained lip.

STAY BEAUTIFUL AND BE HAPPY.
