1. Black and Purple
Purple lips are an incredible finishing touch to a makeup look – especially when blended with black. Recreate this purple and black ombre style with ease. Start by outlining your lips with a thick black line. Blend with a brush so that the edges are blurred. Then, taking a pretty purple lipstick, paint the centre of your lips for this fab finish.
2. Glittery Purple Ombre
If ombre lips still aren’t enough you can always add a touch of sparkle like in the picture above! To recreate this incredible look, start with the line. Choose a dark and deep purple shade and line the lips thickly. Gently smudge this line outwards.
Take a bright purple and paint the centre of the lips. Finish with a glitter coat right across the centre of the lips.
3. Purple to Pink
Why have one colour for ombre when you can work with too? This beautiful purple and pink hybrid certainly has all of us at Styles Weekly swooning! Start with your favourite bright purple lipstick or lip liner. Line the lips with a thick line and smudge towards the centre of the lips. Take a bright pink and paint all over the centre of the lips for this amazing finish.
4. Nude Ombre Effect
Of course, the ombre effect works equally well with two different hues in the same colour! This nude look makes the lips look larger, plumper and just fabulous. Start with a dark nude lip liner and line the lips with a thick line. Smudge this towards the centre of the lip. Then, taking a light, nude lipstick, paint the centre of the lips. Finish with a gloss!
5. Red and Black
A stunning twist on a classic red lip, we just can’t get enough of this black to red ombre style. Start by taking black lipstick or lip liner and lining the outer corners of the lips. Add a thick line around the corners and softly blend inwards. Taking your favourite shade of red, fill in the centre of the lips fully for the most wonderful look.
6. Pink to Peach Ombre
Pink and peach look so pretty together, don’t you agree? This stunning, light and bright ombre look is just perfect for summer! Recreate this vibrant style by taking a dark pink and drawing a thick line around the outlines of each lip. Right around the outside and blend this colour inwards. Then, with a pretty peach, colour in the centre of the lips.
7. Dark Red to Nude
It’s not often that you’d think pink and dark red would blend well together. However, this picture proves that they most certainly do! Take a dark shade of red and line the lips with a thick line of colour. Use your fingers to pat this in and lightly smudge the edges. Then, with your favourite nude lipstick, fill in the centre of the lips for contrast.
8. Dark Pink and Nude
Dark pink and nude blend so well together and this ombre look makes the lips look so full! Take a dark pink lip liner and liberally line your lips. Be sure that the line is thick and full before smudging outwards towards the centre of the lips. Then, with a nude shade, colour in the centre of the lips. Make sure that the colours and blended together seamlessly.
9. Dark to Light Purple
Why choose one shade of purple lipstick when you can choose two? The dark and bright colours contrast together so perfectly in this look that we just can’t get enough! Start with a deep and dark purple colour around the outside of the lips. Using your bright purple shade, fill in the centre of the lips. Make sure the two colours blend together perfectly.
10. Brown to Nude
Brown and nude blend themselves seamlessly together and create a flawless ombre effect. Taking a brown lip liner, lightly line the whole lips. Use the liner to create a thicker section on each corner of the lips. Gently colour the centre of the lips in with a nude shade. Blend these colours together outwards to the corners of the lips for a fantastic finish.
