Halloween beauty trend: Ombre lip how-to

 
 
The ombré lip is totally in, and lucky for us it’s perfect for your fiercest Halloween costumes. Add that extra wow factor to your wicked witch, Cruella DeVil or vicious vampire outfit—after all, it does look a little like blood right? The best part is it’s sooo easy; only four steps!

 

Here’s what you’ll need:
 
2 shades of lipstick; 1 dark, 1 lighter shade
 
Try:
 
  
 
Smashbox Be Legendary lipstick, in Infrared Matte and Mocha, $19 each, sephora.com
 
1. Rub a tiny bit of foundation over your lips, then apply the darker shade of lipstick to your pout. Hint: it helps to use a more opaque lipstick to get the best coverage.
 
2. Purse lips and apply the lighter lipstick in the middle of the lip, on both lips.

 

3. Using your finger, lightly blend the lighter color into the darker. Make sure you keep the darker edging of the first layer intact.

 

4. Dab on some clear gloss to the center of your bottom lip, and voila! You’ve got a knockout lip look to add to your already fab costume.
