I love dressing up or themed nights out as I can play around with various makeup looks. Friday night was a masquerade theme for a friends birthday and boy was it a good night out. There were some great masks and I ended up choosing a filigree mask off eBay.

I thought this would be a great time to play around with the ombre lips, sticking with the classic red. Rather than sticking with the brown neutrals for the eyes, I had reached out for the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette for a more of a feminine touch with it’s rosy undertones. I did have an idea of the eye look I had wanted but it didn’t go according to plan. Let’s say there was a lot of cotton pads used during the process and changed the idea completely in the end.

The ombre lips wasn’t as hard as I had thought. Blending is definitely the key and I’m quite proud of the outcome for a first timer. Not 100% perfect but I can gloat right? I don’t have a red lipliner in my makeup collection and have realised I need one if I’m doing lips like these. Can anyone recommend a great red lip liner please?

    Love your makeup! I haven't tried ombre lips yet, I'll probably mess it up some how.

    I like your mask. It looks very elegant and your lipstick does match it. I didn't realize it was ombre at first but I was wondering why the corner is darker. It gives and illusion of a pouty lips.
