LOTD – Friday 19 July

Today I’m giving the ombre lip trend a go.


I love the ombre trend! But let’s face it, how many of us could be arsed to actually do a full-on ombre lip for everyday wear? Nope, me either!

Here’s a shot where I look suspiciously like Elijah Wood. Oh dear!

Ombre lips

That’s why I’ve opted for a very subtle version. I applied Rimmel’s Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 09 (my favourite red, BTW) as a base. Then I added a smudge of Revlon Super Lustrous Crème Lipstick in Black Cherry to the inner part of my lips. I love the effect – very subtle, and perfect for the office!

A look like this needs to be teamed with a scent with attitude. I went for Cacharel Amor Amor.
