How to Wear Two-Tone Lipsticks
Two-Tone Lipstick with Ombre
The classic red never goes out of style. You can give this classic crimson a new look by using a darker shade to create an ombre and make your lips look fuller.
Mix Glossy and Matte in the Same Shade
Pucker up and make your pout pop with fushia pink. Add a layer of gloss over a blush matte lipstick to go crazy glossy. This candy, impulsive pink is girly and fun!
Mix Two Shades of Matte Lipsticks
Matte lipsticks in muted tones can give bold hues a subtle outlook. It is perhaps the most effortless way to pull off this trend. The trick to avoid smudging is to do this with just lip-pencils! Use pink with a cool undertone and put it on half of your lips and fill the rest of it with a warmer shade. Top this off with a double winged liner and a natural blush.
Wear Different Colors with Lots of Glitter
Go over the top with glitter and different colored lips. Put on a generous amount of sheer lip gloss and a whole lot of glitter for this party look! The trick to rock this trend is to go in for complementary colors.
Add a Dash of Metallic to a Pastel Lip
Inspired by the ocean goddess, the makeup artist has lacquered the lips with a dramatic swipe of coral blue. Define your face with bronzer to complement the look. Pro-Tip: Use a lighter shade on the entire lip and add a contrasting hue by just dabbing it over the lips.
Add a Metallic Outline of Sorts
Pull off this two tone trend with a cheerful swipe of jewel tone shades and line your cupids bow and the centre of your lower lip with gold. These two-toned lips with smudgy kohl eyes are a great combination!
