Doing The Ombré

After seeing renditions from Keiko and Emily, I thought I’d give ombré lips a go. The original objective was to create a Black with Purple gradient but in the end, I went with a gilded finish.


First, I lined my lips with Avon Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Baby Pink (which is, in actuality, more of a Peach Coral), made it a thoroughly generous border. You might be wondering why such a light hue given the final outcome. Honestly? It was the nearest thing on hand 🙂


I filled in the corners with Nyx Lipstick in Almost Black, first straight from the tube and then I evened it out with a lip brush.


I used Nyx Alecto to fill in the rest of the lips and then added a dash of Nyx Hubba Bubba Waouh in the centre of both upper as well as lower lips for contrast. Make sure everything is blended nicely.


Tadah 🙂 it took less than five minute to create this look. Is the ombré effect something you’d fancy? And try?

Love, Sheela

p/s that amazing eye liner? It’s from Addictive Cosmetics on Etsy 🙂 it shimmers and gleams and catches the light, and is everything sugary, spicy, and nice.


  1. I’ve never been a fan of the ombre lips, to be honest, but I do like your choice of ombre shades. By the way, LOVE the aqua liner!

  2. Not really a fan of the more stark ombrés, but this one definitely works well (and suits you.) I prefer subtle and colors that blend instead of vivid contrasts, so I will surely be trying this out.

    I’m so enjoying the face/lip posts, Sheela!


    • Thank you, thank you, thank you, Anne 🙂 I’m still so apprehensive of looking, well, like an idiot 🙂 but I’m enjoying playing with make-up far too much to really care LOL
