FFF: Naked 2 makeup look with ombre lips!

Friday, 24 February 2012

Hey guys!
It's been a busy week, what with the Bourjois event on Monday and the Superdrug event yesterday (post still to come!)
I've had this makeup look lying around on my computer since I first got the Naked 2 palette and all the new Spring collection (hence the heavy use of UD products!) so I thought it was about time to post it.
It's a very very basic and neutral look, the emphasis is on the lips for this one (I blurred the rest of my face) so I hope you like! 

Products used:
Eyes:
> UDPP
> UD Naked 2 - Bootycall, Chopper, Tease, Foxy & Blackout (for eyebrows)
> UD 24/7 eye pencil in Perversion & Demolition
> UD Lush Lash mascara
> UD Brow Box in Brown Sugar
> UD concealer in NSA
Face:
> UD cream to powder foundation - Supernova
> UD Baked Bronzer - Toasted
Lips:
> UD SSLC in Lovechild & Apocalypse

After applying the Supernova foundation all over the face and priming the eyes with UDPP, I started the eyeshadow by applying Foxy to the brow bone and Bootycall to the inner corner of the eyes. Chopper was added to the middle and end of the eyelids. Tease was used for the crease/outer V and blended slightly upwards and into the Foxy on the brow bone.
Demolition eyeliner (matte brown) was used on the bottom lashline, fairly thick, whilst Perversion (blackest black) was used for the topliner (and to line the inner eyes).
After filling the brows with the brow box and a little Blackout from the Naked 2 palette, I finished the eyes with the Lush Lash mascara and concealer, whilst also cleaning up any round edges on the outer corner of the eyes with a cotton bud.

For the rest of the face I used Toasted bronzer on the cheeks and T-zone; the lips however were fairly trickier to do, so if you decide to do this look, it's something I wouldn't recommend for wearing whilst eating.. or going out for that matter!
To start off, I applied Apocalypse to the top lip and Lovechild to the bottom lip. Very gently, I patted the lips together (as you do on tissue!) but only the inside of the lips.. you dont want to just mix Apocalypse and Lovechild and create a new colour, you want a graduation of dark to light!
You may need to reapply either colour again and pat lips again, and maybe even use your finger to blend a bit, but it should end up looking something like this:
And the whole face:
So as you can see, the emphasis is mainly on the lips this time, not so much on the eyes.. I got the idea from a magazine and personally love anything ombre-d; hair, nails, lips, you name it!
What do you think of this look? Not very practical I know, but I love it all the same!

  1. Transitions are so amazingly done I cant even tell any shading had been done to the lips.
    it just looks like your lips have that dimension naturally and the light just happen to hits the middle part.

    Impressive.
