Bored of wearing your lipstick in the same ol’ fashioned way? The ombre lip trend is still very in! Check out the top 3 ways to wear your ombre lip in 2016.
Ombre Lip Trend #1: Natural Reverse Ombre
The Dolce & Gabbana ombre lip is perhaps my favorite this year! It’s the kind of lips you get when you’ve just had a fruity ice cream. Or something! The ombre here is reverse. Traditionally, ombre lips are done with the darker shade on the outer edges and lighter shade on the inside, to make the lips look fuller. However, this one is going darker inside, and blends with the natural lip on the edges.
Ombre Lip Trend #2: Red Reverse Ombre
The deep red is a very fall color. And here’s another reverse ombre -this one goes from deep red on the outer edges to wine on the inside – it’s like you just had wine. Over strawberries! Let’s call it the strawberry wine ombre!! (I’m not a foodie – I like to call myself a gourmand! Or – maybe gourmande. :P)
Ombre Lip Trend #3: Glossy Deep Red Ombre
Here’s the classic ombre – in a glossy, deep wine to scarlet avatar.
