Hello, everyone! It's been a long time that I did a tutorial but now I will be doing some which have been on my mind since ages. Do you remember the time when every other celebrity were going for lip injections and lip surgeries to plump the natural lips to get the fuller look? One of the latest was Kylie Jenner lips which are so popular that various shades were unofficially named as 'Kylie's Lip Color'. Well, while a portion of the world was obsessed with fuller lips, the Korean lip art called gradient lips is a fresh change. Not all of us are born with fuller lips or prefer getting injections and for such people, we have the gradient lips to go for. It gives a cute doll-like look and is extremely easy. Maybelline, few months ago, bought the Lip Gradation Lipsticks in the market which claims to give you such gradient lips. However, as tempted as I was to buy those cute ones, I restrained because I thought the shade card wasn't very impressive. The shades are easy to dupe and there was nothing extraordinary about it. Nevertheless, coming back to the tutorial, scroll down to know how I have created the easy gradient lip art.

Products Required:
  • Lip balm/lip butter (Nivea Lip Butter Blueberry Blush)
  • Lip Brush (Unbranded one)
  • Nude Lipstick (MAC Honeylove)
  • Concealer (Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer)
  • Bright Pigmented Lipstick Color (Faces Ultime Pro 04 Hot Wired Starry Matte Lip Crayon)
  • Tissue for blotting

Step By Step Procedure:

Gradient lip art is best done on well moisturized and well-prepped lips. Dry or chapped lips need to be properly exfoliated before the lip art. I have used Nivea Lip Butter Blueberry Blush which hydrates my lips and heals the dry layers effectively.

Take a dry tissue and place it over the lips and apply a gentle pressure to take off the excess lip balm or lip butter. This ensures that the lips will be hydrated without any overtly glossy effect.

With the help of a lip brush, I have mixed little concealer (Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer) and Nivea Lip Butter and applied on the lips to correct and conceal. Since I have pigmentation on the upper lips, I had to do this step. However, if you do not have any discoloration or pigmentation, feel free to skip this step.

Next, I have applied Faces Ultime Pro 04 Hot Wired Starry Matte Lip Crayon which is a bright blue based fuchsia on the inner lining of upper and lower lips. Choose a lip color which is highly pigmented and requires one or two swipes to bring out the pigmentation.

With the help of the same lip brush which I used above, I have blended the color with rest of the portion to have the 'gradient effect'. You can also press the lips together to blend in naturally or use the fingers simply to dab and blend.

And your gradient lips are done! Pair it with cute winged liner and falsies for the doll makeup look.
