Ombre Lips

Hey girlies/guylies hope you've all had a blessed day

Well I was pretty bored today and thought I'd have a little experiment with some of my lippies, and seeing as ombre has been on trend lately... I thought why not?!



(photo from pinterest) 

I did 3 types of ombre, they're quite subtle so I think they can be worn out without people thinking you have issues... to be honest, each to their own anyway, if someone wants to walk around with rainbow lips then that's their choice.. YO GO GLEN COCO!! (I know that quote is not really relevant but I felt it was more appropriate than "power to the people!") one dark red/red, and one dark pink/pink... I wish I had orange because that would make such an epic ombre.... guess that's going to be my next purchase then

Hope you likey

Note: I tried the gradient starting from my top lip and ending at the bottom but that just failed miserably... just looked like I don't know how to put lipstick on..took a pic anyway so you guys can have some giggles

Look 1: Sleek Cranberry Lip Pencil + MAC in Ruby Woo



(With flash)

I'm quite fond of this one, the last time I had a night out I had the same look... exhibit A



... just realised it's so hard to see because I'm smiling....clap clap Lis

Look 2: Sleek Cranberry Lip Pencil + MAC in Ruby Woo + Collection 2000 Cream Puff in Fairy Cake




(With flash)

Look 3: Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in One Of A Kind + Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush + Collection 2000 Cream Puff in Fairy Cake





I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't go out with this last look on, for some reason I'm not that comfortable with all over pink on my lips... I find it a bit difficult because I don't use foundation or anything to set a base so it clashes a little with my "uneven" complexion....but I think I'm going to experiment and see how I can make it work. Going to try some more extreme versions too. 

Do you guys have a favourite? Have you tried this look yourself?

      I know right, some people just haven't caught up with the times yet, I don't understand how anyone even has time for racism when there's so much other stuff to be concerned about in this world... it's ridiculous... thanks for your comment love
