Ombre Lips!

So, I've seen this around quite a bit lately in glossy magazines, so I thought I'd create my own version!
As you can see, I have a full block colour on my upper lip, with a blended colour on the bottom. I think this is a very pretty effect, or it could be quite dramatic, depending on what colour you choose.

I simply applied my chosen lipstick to my upper lip, I then lightly pressed my lips together & then removing excess lipstick from the centre of my bottom lip. Finally, I finished off with a very pale pink in the centre. 

This gives a great effect for fuller lips. I personally would next time apply lip liner, to give a more dramatic, noticeable effect, although if you're not that daring, this is subtle, yet unique! I think this effect would look great with a darker, plum colour, blending into nothing!

I hope you enjoyed this little post, probably my shortest yet!

Thank you!
