When two-toned lips, or gradient lips, first came into the beauty scene, we were a bit confused by it—why would someone want to look like their lipstick had been smudged? But now we realize that its "imperfection" is what made it, for lack of a better word, perfect. It looks more natural and youthful, and the ~*just bitten*~ finish is stunning.
Here are eight inspiring ways you can try it out for yourself:
Paired with doll-like eyes and an uber glowy complexion, Kate's pink lip is the cherry on top of this K-inspired look.
Who says you can't recreate the trend with berry tones? Just use neutral hues for the rest of your face and add some bronzer to look sun-kissed like Sue!
Rose blush, lots of mascara, natural kilay, and a two-tone red lip color is all you need for a night out.
Once you find your perfect nude lippie, use a lighter shade around the edges and blend them together—the finish is a natural-but-better-looking pout that will go well with a bit of brow gel, mascara, and blush!
Who knew red and mauve would look amazing when combined? Use the same tones on your eyes for a bold statement.
When working with a hot pink gradient lip, keep the rest of the shades on your face in the brown and beige family to avoid any clashes.
Jane's look is focused on her eyes, so her almost skin-like two tone lip stands out even more with its hint of red in the middle.
Klea kept things monochromatic by matching her gradient peach lip with her eyes—LOVE!
