I’m going to be completely honest guys. Yes, I do have a Pinterest account. No, I have no idea how to use it. I know, right?! It’s pretty much a given if you’re a beauty blogger.
It’s such serendipity then that my love of makeup led me to explore the kaleidoscopic picture book that is Pinterest! As you guys who have read my stuff before know, I am a lips lover (hrm, that didn’t come out right). And while looking for lipspiration I came across some amazing ombre lips.
For those of you who don’t have a clue what that means I really recommend checking this video out. Ombre lips, bae!
I’ll be trying these out later but before I do that, I thought I’d share my favorite 8 with you!
1. BYZANTIUM METAL
I had to look this shade of purple up. Seriously. Google it. It’s so hypnotizing. I’m pretty sure vampire goddesses wore this about a hundred years ago before they went snacking on some equally hypnotized… meal.
Iridescent and dark like the night sky. I love these lips as much as staring up into the milky way. Which, to be honest, I don’t do enough of, but I will tonight!
3. SPARKLY PINK!
All the shades of pink plus glitter. What’s not to love?!
4. DARK TO LIGHT
I love these lips so much. It’s super unique. I mean, sure, you can make your top lip dark and your bottom lip light. But blending it down to your bottom lip so it looks like it’s one big ombre shade? Genius.
5. FUSION KOREAN
I call this one Fusion Korean because Korean’s love the dark inner, light outer lips look, and this is like that… except if your lips also decided to also take acid at the same time.
6. OH MY!
7. THE SEA AT NIGHT
This reminds me of that scene in Life of Pi where the water lights up at night and a whale emerges from the deep. Don’t know what I mean? watch this. In the film it’s a tragic but, also such a beautiful moment.
8. ROSES ARE RED
I mean. It’s just obvious, right? Imagine the ruby red lip color that you love to wear out the most. Then give it steroids. Voila! You get this.
