I don’t know about you, but I always feel like I have my act together and am super confident when my lips look great.

Some people cannot finish their makeup looks or leave the house without some lip liner, lip gloss, or lipstick, while others feel fine leaving their lips bare or just throwing on a quick bit of chapstick before starting the day.

I can understand wanting to wear more lipstick for your everyday makeup looks but getting overwhelmed, as so many lip trends come and go. However, I think this latest trend will stick around and will always be sure to take your look to the next level.

‘Tis the season of ombré lips!

More and more beauty influencers have been experimenting with two-toned lip looks for a long time and have figured out the perfect formula for creating a gradient ombré lip look that’s great for those who like adding a little flare to a neutral lip.

I know you may read the word ombré and think back to the ombré trends of the 2010s, which might make you cringe a little bit, but trust me, this is an ombré that you’ll want to keep around.

To create an ombré lip look, you’ll need two shades of lipstick. They should be within the same shade family, meaning they shouldn’t be too drastically different from one another. This trend is most popular with neutral colors, so you could start with two neutral pink or brown hues about two shades away from each other.

You’ll also need a lip liner that’s a shade darker than the lipsticks you selected, as well as your go-to lip gloss. Optionally, you should also have a lip primer or chapstick to use as a base for this look.

To create ombré lips, start by applying a lip primer or coat of chapstick to create a nice, smooth foundation for this look. Doing this will keep your lips primed and hydrated so your ombré look lasts longer and doesn’t crack.
