As some of you may know if you’ve been following my 10 Day Beauty Challenge, I’ve set myself 10 Challenges to complete as part of my New Year! New Me feature!
So far I’ve completed a Sixties Look, a Vamp Lipstick Look, I’ve tried and tested the Clinique Chubby sticks and Today I’ve set out to try an exciting Beauty Trend!
This Trend is probably old news to some of you by now and please forgive me for only just hopping on the bandwagon, but as I’ve told myself, this Challenge is an opportunity for encouraging myself to try the things that I’ve never tried before!
So the Beauty Trend that I’ve attempted Today is ‘Ombré Lips’ after an hour of Googling images for inspiration I finally settled for a Purplish, Pink Ombré.
I used a selection of Lipsticks by MAC, ILLAMASQUA AND RIMMEL plus a Black eyeshadow by ELF to create my Purple to pink Ombre. You can use any lipstick combo in any range of colours that you like, just make sure to select colours that compliment each other and that will blend seamlessly for the best results! Or if you are feeling brave I guess you could do contrasting colours! Just remember to blend out any harsh lines. I used a black eyeshadow to create a ‘v’ shape in the corners of my mouth and blended it in with a deep purple shade for a really dramatic ombre effect.
Today’s Challenge has been the most fun to do! It really was a great Challenge and I’m pretty pleased with the results! If you guys are interested I’ll do a photo tutorial for this look one day! :)
Although I’m a bit late, I’m glad I attempted it and am looking forward to experimenting with more colour combos! I might try a Nude to Red Ombre next! :)
