FOTD: Sunset Lips and Cheeks

Last year, the trend was ombre hair, but this year, ombre is all about makeup. I've been seeing ombre lips all over instagram and tumblr, and yesterday I decided to give the look a shot myself.

I wasn't satisfied with a simple two toned lip, I also decided to go for a similar cheek look. The idea here is that it mimics the various stages of sunset, from orange and pink to pink and purple.

I went with a horizontal colour transition rather than a vertical one because I find it wears better throughout the day. Also I can't speak for all the CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks, but Spellbound wears like a champ. It lasts a really long time and then leaves behind a really even stain that's actually kind of hard to get rid of. I was pretty impressed for a product under $10.

Products Used:

Face: MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NW15, Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Fair, Pixi All Over Magic in Bare Radiance

Brows: Anastasia Brow Wiz in Dark Brown

Eyes: Stila Stay All Day Liner in Moss, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara

Cheeks: Benefit Coralista, Colourpop Mochi, Lovely me:ex I Make You Brighter in 01 Pink Glow

Lips: Sonia Kashuk Lip Definer in Hibiscus, Colourpop Lip Liner in Leather, MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth, CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Spellbound



    1. The trick for me was to basically do the whole thing with lip liner, blend it with a lip brush, and then put on the lipstick to blend and add more colour? Like I feel like I wouldn't have been able to get the look with just one liner and one lipstick.
