FOTD : Ombre Lips

Ombre Lips - this is the look that I saw from Miu Miu's Fall 2011 show, Gucci AW11 show and Dior's Fall 2010 show.  Two shades of red are graduated on the lip for a layered finish that’s eye-catching, dramatic yet wearable and not as hard to achieve as you might think.

And this is my takes on wearable Ombre Lips. 

Products used (Lips only):
- YSL Lip Liner #11 - prune and plum colour.
Diorific Lipstick 013 Roulette Red/Rouge Bingo

Allright, my tips and tricks to achieve ombre lips:
• Find contrasting colors that are in the same family like red and plum or black, red and pink, red and orange, or purple and pink, lilac and purple.
• Fill your entire lips with the darker base shade to avoid the lip-liner effect.
• To add a lighter color to the center of your lips, dab the with a brush and blend.
• With a bold lip statement like this one, make sure to keep the rest of your makeup low-key.
• Best to have matte finish (for me), but if you wanted to leave it glossy, I think that will look great too. This trend are so in right now especially during Fall/Winter. :)
