Hi, my name is Kara. You are watching VisiHow. Today I will show you how to get the Ombre effect on you lips. Let me tell you in two words what is Ombre. Ombre is a type of painting where darker colors gradually grow into a lighter tones. And over the years you might have noticed that Ombre has gotten very popular with hair, when the girl's have darker hair here (on top) and slightly lighter endings.
So today we're going to make Ombre lips
For that I'm going to be using two lipsticks of different tones, one is a bright pink it is a matte lipstick.
and the other is a Coral Mac which has a completely different texture
So before I use any lipstick I need to put a tiny bit of facial powder on my lips to make the lipstick color as bright as possible
Also the lips carry the lipstick better over time when you have a base, such as a facial powder
So I'm using Mick's matte lip balm and I'm going to start with making a contour with this brush.
You see how I'm not painting the whole lip, just the top frame and now I'm going to be going to the bottom frame
Lets make a second layer for deeper color.
So, after we make the frame this will be are darker color, I recommend you use the darker for a frame and lighter in the middle
That will also allow you to make your lips look like they have more volume. And this is a slightly lighter tone, different texture.
If you are using Nick lip cream, like I did you will have to wait for it to dry off
So now I'm going to be applying Mac, but I'm not going to be putting it on the frame, just in the middle.
Thank you for watching VisiHow
