I have the tendency of getting carried away when I go into a makeup store. I start getting ideas that I can be bold enough to wear all sorts of lipstick colours.

It then gets worse because I buy lip-liners for them too!! Then reality kicks in when I put them on and can’t gather the courage to step out of the house and end up wearing a natural lipstick instead.

As a result, I have all these lipsticks that are not being used and collecting dust.

Ombre effect makeup| Ombre effect lipstick| Ombre effect Mac

So today I thought I’d play around with a few of them and see what I come up with.

Ombre effect makeup| Ombre effect lipstick| Ombre effect Mac
This colour isn’t too bright and goes quite well with my skin tone. I actually went out and about today and didn’t get “the you are crazy woman stares” so that’s good!

I think I can get used to wearing this one but still need more guts to wear all these bold colours that are popular at the moment.

This is what I used.

Lady danger Mac lipstick| Cherry Mac lipliner

I used the Mac matte “lady danger” lipstick and Mac “cherry” lipliner and created an ombre look and worked so well and to my surprise it wasn’t as bad as I thought it’d be.

please comment below and tell me what you think.

What combos have you tried that you like?
