Ombré hairstyles turned heads this spring and the bold color gradation trend continues on your lips. Like the hairstyle, ombré lips transition from light to dark color (and vice versa). The resulting look creates the illusion of a fuller lip and gives your lips dimension. But it ain’t for everybody.

If you’re down to try this trend, the key to pulling it off is to work with colors in the same family. These shades blend nicely.

-Red and pink
-Orange and pink
-Red and orange
-Purple and pink

Once you’ve found the colors you want to work with, start off by applying the darkest color around your lip line and then fade the lighter colors in the center. You can also try this trend with pale edges and a darker inner. Once you’ve applied the lipstick, add a soft lip gloss for shine, or go without and rock the matte look.

If you rock this daring look, remember, play it safe with the rest of your makeup.

Would you rock ombré lips, Clutchettes?

    I’ve done this before mostly with nudes, pinks and oranges before I knew to call it ombre.

    I’m only doing it if someone else applies it first. I need a coach! If left on my own…I’ll look a hot mess in public. Me getting the side-eye is an understatement,lol

    Isn’t this what they used to do back in the day with lip liner?
