Why choose one lip color when you can have two? The ombré effect is when you create a color gradient, transitioning from one color to the next. We’ve seen this gorgeous look on hair, nails and lips, and we can’t get enough of it.
While ombré traditionally goes from light to dark, a beautiful color melt blends two or more colors together, creating a smooth, seamless transition. We’ll show you how to take this bold, high-fashion trend and make it wearable for a night on the town or a fun Valentine’s Day lip.
A perfectly blended lip is hard to keep in place, so go for a longwear, matte lipstick like Suede Matte Crayon. Once you apply this velvety formula, it will set in place for all day wear. After playing with several color combinations, we’ve found our favorite with sorbet, a vibrant fuchsia, and crimson, a deep, vampy red. For a classic light-to-dark look, pair crush with crimson, or monogram with demure. Experiment until you find your perfect color melt!
