1

Prep Your Lips

Apply lip balm over your lips and gently rub a clean disposable mascara wand over your lips to slough off any dead skin cells to prepare them for even lip color application.

2

Base

Create a nude base for the lip color. To make vibrant lip colors pop, prime your lips first with the same foundation you normally use on your face.

3

Lip Liner

Line your mouth. Outline your pout with a bright, colored lip crayon that has long-lasting wear. Continue to fill in your lips, fading out the color toward the center of your lips.

4

The Effect

Create an ombrè effect. Place the tip of a long-wearing lip crayon inside the center of your lips and fade it into the other shade, creating a slight gradating effect.

5

Finishing Touch

Finish with a glossy stain. Give your lips that patent leather sheen by applying a dab of a glossy lip stain over the center of your lips. The shine in the middle of your mouth also gives the illusion of a fuller pout.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I plan to try this tomorrow. However I'm thinking of skipping the gloss. I like a more matte look for the fall & winter seasons.

Instead of using gloss, I used a slightly shimmery colour in the centre
