Ombre Lip Inspirations

I’m going to be completely honest guys. Yes, I do have a Pinterest account. No, I have no idea how to use it. I know, right?! It’s pretty much a given if you’re a beauty blogger.

It’s such serendipity then that my love of makeup led me to explore the kaleidoscopic picture book that is Pinterest! As you guys who have read my stuff before know, I am a lips lover (hrm, that didn’t come out right). And while looking for lipspiration I came across some amazing ombre lips.

For those of you who don’t have a clue what that means I really recommend checking this video out. Ombre lips, bae!

I’ll be trying these out later but before I do that, I thought I’d share my favorite 8 with you!

1. Byzantium Metal

I had to look this shade of purple up. Seriously. Google it. It’s so hypnotizing. I’m pretty sure vampire goddesses wore this about a hundred years ago before they went snacking on some equally hypnotized… meal.

2. Starlight

Iridescent and dark like the night sky. I love these lips as much as staring up into the milky way. Which, to be honest, I don’t do enough of, but I will tonight!

3. Sparkly Pink!

All the shades of pink plus glitter. What’s not to love?!

4. Dark to Light

I love these lips so much. It’s super unique. I mean, sure, you can make your top lip dark and your bottom lip light. But blending it down to your bottom lip so it looks like it’s one big ombre shade? Genius.

5. Fusion Korean

I call this one Fusion Korean because Korean’s love the dark inner, light outer lips look, and this is like that… except if your lips also decided to also take acid at the same time.

7. The Sea At Night

This reminds me of that scene in Life of Pi where the water lights up at night and a whale emerges from the deep. Don’t know what I mean? watch this. In the film it’s a tragic but, also such a beautiful moment.

8. Roses are Red

I mean. It’s just obvious, right? Imagine the ruby red lip color that you love to wear out the most. Then give it steroids. Voila! You get this.

Makeup for Idiots – 6 Infographics

Vloggers on YouTube make it look so easy don’t they. When you try those looks by yourself you just end up looking like a gremlin who ate after midnight. It’s so unfair. But fret no longer ladies! I’ve put together 6 super simple infographics with basic makeup techniques everyone can learn in a cinch.

Check them out below!

Inspiration from Julep so you stop wearing that stupid winged liner you can never make thin enough to stop it looking like a blob of black accidentally stuck to your eye.

Color theory! No more mixing purple and green! Wait… That wasn’t a thing?

Neon Makeup Everywhere! My top 5 Instagram Looks for Inspiration

Neon makeup is blowing up on Instagram!
 
It seems that every two weeks or so, some new trend violently emerges from Instagram to be the next “big” thing. This week it’s neon makeup and, I gotta say, I’m sure there’s no Photoshop trickery going on, but it all looks so cray cray.
 
Once reserved for calling attention to “a certain colored” light districts. it’s now gracing the faces of the top makeup artists of Instagram.
 
Here are my top 5:

This look perfectly captures how psychedelic/beautiful neon makeup can be. I love the iridescent cowl and the neon green highlights.

So hypnotic. I love this look for the intense contrast between light and dark. The intense neon streaks add so much to what would otherwise be drab goth.

The absolute QUEEN of lips! Of course Madam Jauquet was going to get in on the action. I am SO IN LOVE with these lips! They’re sizzling, psychedelic pink sex in lights!

Those crazy neon lines, they look almost supernatural don’t they? Turn the lights off and it reminds me of Atari Centipede (geeks eat your heart out, I was a gamer too!)

Or, ya’ know, just go ham with it. Both creepy and mesmerizing. It’s hilarious that the inspiration for this was a Call of Duty map that featured zombie ravers. First thing I was thinking when I saw this was… Where are her eyes?! Yeah… You too, huh?
 
Now that we’re all inspired up, who’s ready to put this on their face?
