.Glitzy; Lovely Lips

Ombré lipstick – Ombré meaning ‘tones of colour that shade into each other’ –  is very much ‘on trend at the moment, a quick search on Instagram and you’ll understand what I mean.

I’ve always loved a two-shade/tone ‘lippy’, it’s one way to wear really bright colours as long as a deeper shade is applied as one would apply a lip liner.  Also it really doesn’t matter what combination of colours you go for and you don’t have to stick with only two, three tones work a treat; they just have to flawlessly blend into one another.  Blue red with a dark purple; lilac with pink or an orange with burgundy…just keep pressing your lips together until they “shade into each other”.
