Obsessed with #OMBRE featuring #NYX

If you love ombre lips, you’ve got to get your hands on the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks!! My favorites for everyday wear are “Cherry Skies” and “Vintage.” Once I got a few nearly the ENTIRE collection I found out they’re great for creating ombre looks.

Here are a few combinations you can ombre out to your heart’s desire!

For a subtle look combine “Vintage”and “Soft Spoken.” Start with “Vintage” around the outside. Then apply “Soft Spoken”inside, and blend with a lip brush.

 

 

For a glam look grab “Kitten Heels” and “Sandstorm.” Start with “Kitten Heels”around the outside. Then apply “Sandstorm” inside, and blend with a lip brush.

 

Reach for “Stone Fox”and “Cherry Skies” if you’re daring! Start with “Stone Fox” on the outside. Then apply “Cherry Skies” inside, and blend with a lip brush.

What are your favorite ombre looks — and what products do you use to create them? Let me know in the comments below!
