Ombre Lips

Ombre lips are something I'm seeing everywhere at the moment and have been seeing for a while, so I thought I would give them a go myself! After a few trail runs I realised my bottom lip is actually slightly wonky but after that I came up with this look. It is a beautiful deep purple turning pink as you get into the middle of the lips.

I found you will definitely want to use a lip liner the outline your lips first, this helped me so much. After that I went around the outside of my lips with the darker lipstick to again create an outline. I then applied the pink lipstick in the middle of my lips and blended the colours together.

I feel like is definitely something to keep practising as it's quite tricky to start off with, but then I feel you do kind of get the hang of it!

My attempt is certainly not the best but it's also not the worst, so here is my attempt:
