There’s no better time to paint on a rich red lip than during the holidays—even if you’re not really the red lip type.
What’s so brilliant about a red ombre lip is how it takes the most classic of looks, and makes it thoroughly modern by incorporating two shades of red, one lighter, one darker. This optical illusion makes lips look extra full and pouty, and that little touch of reddish-brown tones down the drama ever so slightly, making this infinitely wearable.
Outline your lips with a deep brownish-red liquid lipstick. Fill in the outer corners of lips with it as well, leaving the enter of your lips bare.
Use a classic, cherry red lipstick shade to fill in the center of lips, taking care not to overlap the darker-toned red at the outer edges of the lip. Then, gently diffuse the two shades together so there’s no noticeable “seam” where one shade starts and the other stops.
Create this look with our long-wearing Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick for a lip look that won’t budge for up to 16 hours. Your dazzling red ombre lip will stay picture perfect all night—no touch ups required!
