How to: the blurred lip beauty trend

It's ridiculously easy and looks GORGE

Most Popular

The 'blurred lip' makeup trend has been popping up backstage at fashion week for a while now, and tbh, we're more than a little bit obsessed with it.

It's technically a really subtle ombre lip look, where the colour is concentrated into the middle centre of the mouth, and then blurred out - for a really soft, subtle colour. 

This weather is perfect for a lip look like thiS. Blurred Lips are a trend spotted on every runway for spring summer 2015. Starting with a neutral shade lipstick lip liner is an optional good solution if you want more definition, also, blotting between steps is optional but it helps the staying power of any lipstick. 1.Apply one first thin layer of lip colour avoiding the very edge of your lips and the corners of your mouth. This layer has to be thin since you need to work on the edges without dragging colour all around your mouth. 2.With your finger tips press the colour to blend it with the skin, working from the center of your mouth towards your lip line. You will have less colour on your finger tips in the beginning, but more and more as you go on working the color into the skin. Use each finger when it's stained with more color pigments on the lip line areas that you want to emphasize and when it has less colour on focus on the areas that need to be sheerer (mouth corners). 3.Re-apply your lip colour by tapping the lipstick from the center of the lips towards the edges without reaching the edges of your lips. You can go on tapping your lipstick like this as much as you feel like depending on which areas need more color. If you need to re-apply some lip color later on just concentrate on the center of the lips and then press lips together. #spring #summer #runway #2015 #lips #mua #fade #effect #rose #makeupartist #la #tbt #latergram #Anastasiabeverlyhills #love #style #thelook #fashion #instyle #blurredlips #makeup #trend #alert #easy #edgy

We tried it out here at Sugarscape HQ and we're srsly loving it:

How to:

1) Start off by dabbing concealer or foundation around your outer lip line - leaving the very centre of your lips clean

2) Use a lip liner pencil to colour in the very centre of your top and bottom lip (this helps the colour last longer, and appear more pigmented than lipstick alone)

3) With your finger or a lip brush, apply lipstick over the lip liner colour used. Then blend this out towards the edges of your lips - keeping the middle the most concentrated in colour

4) Add gloss to finish and ta daaaaa. 

We've been trying out the dead subtle #blurredlips beauty trend over on Sugarscape.com 💄💋
