Move over ombré nails, the hottest trend right now is ombré lips – the gradation of colour that complement each going from lightest to the darkest often starting from the middle of your mouth. You need lip pencils in three reds of different colour intensity and a lip brush to get things going. Prep your lips by exfoliating your lips and then smearing some lip balm to soften them so that the lip pencils glide on easily and you get a soft matte finish. Try:
- Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Pomegranate to set the base.
- Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in Hollywood Red for lining the outer corners of your mouth and lip line.
- Colorbar Definer Lip Liner in Clear Red to blend into the inner mouth.
- Lakme 9to5 Lip Liner in Red Alert to fill in the centre of your mouth.
