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.
Of course, there are some colors, which make our eyes more or less bright. But this doesn’t mean you can’t play with makeup and wear the colors you want. The secret formula is to know how to do makeup properly to make even a green shade complement your beautiful olive eyes.
So, let’s learn how to use green shades for green eyes.
Makeup Tutorial for Green Eyes
Always go for a smokey effect.
- First of all, avoid bright shades. You want something soft. For example, olive, artichoke, emerald, or sage. These tones are the easiest ones to adapt to green eyes. If you use lime or mint shade, you risk losing the calmness and freshness the green color has.
- For the first look, prep your eyes with an eyeshadow base. Take a peach tone and cover the eyelid. This will help the further layers to blend better. Take a darker orange tone as a transition color and blend it directly in the crease. Take a darker green tone and put it in the outer corner. Blend a little bit. Then, take an olive or emerald tone, which is lighter than the previous shade and cover the eyelid in the middle. Blend everything together. Use a green shadow with a shimmer directly in the middle of the eyelid. Then, take a black eyeliner and draw a wing. Use the same colors on your lower lashline. Blend to create a smokey effect.
- The second look is more of a daytime. You need three shades of green (from the lightest to the darkest). Take the lightest shade and apply it all over the eyelid. Take the darker shade and apply it in the center and in the corner of the eye. Blend it well into the crease. Take the same color and line the waterline and the lower lashline. Then, take the darkest shade and emphasize the corner once more. Blend it well.
Even a green color can perfectly match green eyes if it is used in a proper shade. Try wearing more olive, artichoke, and sage colors.
