Create an Ombré Effect
If you’re looking for the perfect pick-me-up for your favorite lip shade, the ombré effect will be your jam. Sure, it sounds like it takes a ton of time and effort, but the reality is that it’s pretty easy and can be done on your way to work.
First, apply a lip shade of your choosing — let’s say berry. Then, apply a vampy lipliner that’s at least twice as dark as the first shade. Be sure to only put this on the outer corners of your lip, not in the center. Dab a tiny bit of concealer in the middle of your lips to brighten things up and contrast it from the outer edges.
