How To Create Ombre Lips

*Check out #HQBeautyHacks for tutorials on How To Make Lipstick Last Longer and How To Line Your Cupids Bow*

Step 1: Apply Your Base

The first thing you need to do is apply your base colour. Charmie used Illamasqua’s Anti-Matter Lipstick in shade ‘Physical‘, a pinky toned rubine red with a semi-matte finish. We recommend applying with a lip brush to ensure you’re able to expertly shape your lips.

Step 2: Add Your Second Shade & Blend

Dab on your second shade in the centre of your lips using a lip brush. Charmie used Illamasqua’s Anti-Matter Lipstick in shade ‘Eclipse‘, a luminous white with a semi-matte finish. Use an eyeshadow brush to blend the colours together. Don’t forget, you can keep adding colour to build up the intensity too!

I’ve always loved anything artistic and creative, and experimenting with makeup is no exception! Bold and bright lip colours are my vice. When I’m not trying out new make-up products, you can usually find me scrolling through Instagram, laughing at the latest snapchat filter, or catching up with friends over a few cocktails. Long Island Iced Tea is my staple.
