Bold statement lips are huge this season, but a unique way to sport this spring/summer trend is to wear an ombré lip. We have ombré hair and ombré nails, who said ombré lips can’t join the party?
The lip look I’m wearing today is a wearable ombré lip: a dark pink colour on the outer edge of my lips gradually fade to a lighter pink towards the center. Not only is this lip cool-looking, it also gives an effect of fuller lips. (Ssshh! A best kept secret!)
One of my tips for making this look long-lasting is to use lip liners or matte lipsticks. An alternative is to dab a tiny bit of powder over your lips to increase the staying power.
