Tutorial: Ombre Lips

I love ombre lips, more than actual ombre clothing which I'm not a massive fan of. They are so beautiful and eye-catching, and allow you to use several colors on your lips at once.

See my tutorial below for three different color combinations I like, and there's even a nude option for the shy, or if you just don't like strong lip colors. You will be bang on trend for fall with these stunning lips.

Lip Combo 1: Tropical Orange
Illamasqua - Atomic (top lip)
Make Up Store - Dare (bottom lip)
MAC Beet lipliner

Lip Combo 2: Vampy Red
MAC Bing Mattene (LE) - (MAC Cyber is a good alternative) (top lip)
Giorgio Armani Nr. 400 (bottom lip)
MAC Velvetella Lipliner

Lip Combo 3: Nude
Afterglow Cosmetics - Allure (top lip)
MAC - Myth (lower lip)
Rimmel nude lipliner

Illamasqua - Rampage
