Glam Autumn Makeup: Red Ombre Lips

You don’t have to be a makeup artist or a beauty blogger to recreate this look by yourself. Just follow the recommendations below and you’ll get a fantastic result.

  • Obviously, you’re going to need a black lip pencil (eye pencil) and a red lipstick. We recommend a matte lipstick. So, take the liner and outline the lips. Don’t rush, do everything slowly to achieve a perfect line. Then, use it on the lips directly, apply it towards the middle of the lips. Thus, the edges of the lips have to be colored with black liner completely. Don’t touch the middle. There  the red lipstick is going to be. Then, take a liquid lip color in red and go over the lips. The black should be seen through the liquid lipstick from underneath. If you want even a more dramatic effect, take a black lipstick and go over the edges one more time.
  • For a flawless look, take a concealer and a brush. Go around the edges to sharpen the lips and make them look perfect.
  • How to wear such a dramatic makeup? You have several different options depending on the occasion you’re preparing to. If it is a day look, go for natural eye makeup without eyeshadows. Use mascara only. If it is an evening look, you can do gold or dark smokey eyes. Another option is to complement ombre lips with black eyeliner. But it is more of a holiday look.
  • What clothes to wear with such a dark lip color? If you want your lips to stand out even more, go for a black dress or a black sweater and a pair of black jeans. Or you can wear a white top if you want to balance the look a little bit. Stay away from bright colors. Most bright colors don’t go with such a dark lip shade.

There is nothing difficult in doing a velvet ombre lip effect at home. Be patient and you’ll get a perfect result.
