Hey dolls,

Today's look is an ombre lip tutorial.

This cranberry and violet lip look is very bold and definitely editorial.

I've created two different versions, matte and glossy.

Enjoy the tutorial!


Leocrema (Latte & Miele) Lip Balm
Avon Cosmetics Purple Lip Pencil
BH Cosmetics BH Hollywood Palette ( red, purple, silver, black, purple)
Tammy Tanuka Sigil Inspired - Sister Of Rainbow Dragon
Cascada Of Colours Black Eye Pencil
Leocrema Gloss Ultra Volume - Natural



Step 1: Begin with a moisturizing lip balm.

Step 2: Then, outline and fill in your lips with a purple lip pencil.

Step 3: For the rest of the look, I’ll be using eyeshadows to contour and create the gradient effect. Apply a red eyeshadow to the center of lips leaving the purple outline visible. Blend into the purple shade.

Step 4: Apply a black shadow on the upper lip below the cupid’s bow. Blend so the edges thin out and blend into the purple.

Step 5: Using a silver eyeshadow or highlighter, apply to the bottom half of the lip, primarily to the center. You may want to use your fingers to pat this product on.

Step 6: Using a black eye pencil, outline and contour your entire lips. Blend.

Step 7: Using a purple eyeshadow, apply to the lip line and begin blending the look together.

Step 8: Once you’re satisfied with the gradient, tap a translucent powder over entire lips to mattify the look.

Step 9: Optional: for a high glamour look with shine and shimmer, apply a clear gloss to entire lips. Then, pat on an iridescent pigment with purple and green reflects to the outer portion of the lips creating a beautiful glass like gradient effect!
