Pink Ombre Lip Tutorial

Pink Ombre Lip Tutorial

Good Morning! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! I was able to tackle some much needed spring cleaning tasks and start in on de-cluttering our home. It’s amazing how much “stuff” a family can accumulate in just a couple of years time.

Today’s DIY Pink Ombre Lip Tutorial is a super fun makeup tutorial, and a current trend that I personally really love. It’s such a fun way to show your personality and you can use either bold shades or neutral shades to create as powerful of an ombre look as you desire.

I’ve noticed a lot of brands including NYX and Wet n’ Wild have even been releasing ombre lip kits, and while I do like the convenience of those products, I wanted to show you that you can still easily create the look using lip products you already have in your makeup collection.

Products Used:

Let’s Get Started!

Step 1: Carefully line the outside of the lips with the darkest shade.

Step 2: Using the medium lipstick shade, carefully apply lip color on the bottom lip into what is considered the start of the “pout” area of the lip. Leave the innermost part of the bottom lip for the final color. Repeat for top lip, leaving only a small area for the next color application.

Step 3: Using lightest lipstick shade, apply color to remaining open area of lips on top and bottom. Very carefully purse lips half-way together, focusing only on blending the lightest color on the lips.

Step 4: Going back in with a lip brush, slowly begin blending the lip colors. Start with the outside of the lip and work the color into the second shade, and repeat with blending second shade into first. Keep in mind you are only lightly blending the shades here to get rid of any harsh lines and you don’t want to go overboard or you’ll lose the three-color effect.

    You are seriously so good at applying makeup! I’m glad you did this tutorial because I feel like I am HORRIBLE at applying lipstick! I think part of it is that I have tiny skinny lips haha. Love this color on you!

    Well if I had your lips I’d wear lipstick every day! Hehehe. I used to wear it as a staple but since staying at home and usually makeup-less, my lipstick passion has diminished. But every time I get a date night with the hubs (rarely!) I bust out my old favs. Love this tutorial and totally trying it!
