Ombre lips are definitely one of our most favourite trends for summer. As the majority of these looks are so bright and bold, they’re perfect for this time of year when it’s all about sunny weather and wearing brightly coloured outfits. Find your favourite and follow the tutorial to get those perfectly ombred lips you’ve always dreamed of!
We adore this Ariel inspired mermaid look and it’s super easy to recreate for yourself!
How to: Use a bright, high shine purple lipstick to cover your bottom lip then blot a little on to the lower part of your bottom lip. Next, use a reflective blue or preferably turquoise lipstick to fill in your top lip. Blend the purple and turquoise together using your finger to create a seamless transition between the two colours.
This lip looks fades downwards offering something a little different for this trend that we just love.
How to: Start with a deep purple shade along your upper lip line and drag the colour downwards so it starts to fade at the bottom. Add a little more colour just to the top lip line so the colour here stay concentrated. Apply a pastel lilac lipstick to your bottom lip and use your finger to blend this colour upwards until it meets the purple. Blend both colours where they meet to create a fade from top to bottom.
