FOTD: Subtle ombre lips


I did a purple to pink ombre lips today but very subtly done. I don’t really like the very exaggerated look of the ombre lips, well at least not during the day, a night out sure, but here is a daytime/office appropriate look.


I am wearing Essence lip liner in Cute Pink 07. I absolutely love these lip liners. They are so pigmented and creamy and extremely long lasting. Yes the lip liner is a nice deep pink shade and my lips look purple right?


But I applied Revlon’s Color Burst Lip Butter in Gumdrop , which is a lavender toned lipstick , so when they mixed this is what came out! I also did try it with a nice rose pink lipstick and it got a completely different effect.

I’ve used the very last colour of the palette, more of a fuschia purple to outline my lower lash and the dark violet purple to outline my upper lash line.  I completed the look with a thick liquid eyeliner line and mascara.
