It’s Time to Mix Lipsticks: Coral and Yellow Ombre

Mix Lipsticks

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips

Using a cotton bud and lip balm, exfoliate your lips to ensure even coverage.

Step 2: Line your lips

Go for a lip pencil and draw around your lips. Begin by drawing an X shape on your cupid’s bow – this always helps to enhance the shape of your lips. Top Tip: Smile to stretch your lips out!

Step 3: Fill in your lips gently

While with darker shades you may want to fill in your lips with the lip liner completely, this time just fill in around the contour of your lips. This is because we want the yellow to pop in the middle!

Step 4: Apply coral lipstick

Apply coral lipstick around the edges, intensifying the hue.

Step 5: Grab a brush and go for yellow

To achieve a stronger tone of yellow, dab the product on to the centre of your lips using a brush. If you want a colour that’s more intense, add a few extra layers of yellow. That’s right, it’s time to dab, dab, dab!

Step 6: Dust translucent powder over your lips (Optional)

If you want a matte lipstick effect, apply translucent powder on top your lips. This also will help the shade to last longer.
