This is a look inspired a little bit by valentines day. It's soft, it's girly and it's sweet. You won't even end up with red lipstick everywhere after a good makeout session haha!
Gradient lips can look really daunting to do, but it's really easy. This look is a variation on the ulzzang gradient lips, which usually only uses a liptint and is very subtle and delicate looking. I find that the ulzzang gradient lips don't suit me as they are too light, and I prefer to wear a darker lip. Instead I have chosen to use the L'Oreal Lip Caresse in Juliet, which is very strong and pigmented, and the more jelly-ish Revlon Lip Butter to blend it out and smooth out the gradient.
You can also try this look with purples, hot pinks or bright reds. Colours you may find too daunting to wear normally but will look great as a softer gradient.
I paired it up with a beige, taupe and grey eye look, these subtle colours really suit the soft gradient lips well.
What kind of makeup do you like to wear for valentines day? Sexy? Sweet?
