The ombre lip trend has actually been around for a while, the concept originated with drag queens who wanted to make their lips look fuller. However, within the last year or so the ombre lip trend has become very popular in the beauty world. You can’t follow any of your favorite social media makeup gurus without seeing it on a daily. For a long time it was considered a pretty difficult makeup that could only be perfected by makeup professionals, but lately it has caught onto the young hipster and amatuer MUA crowd. The trend has become so huge that cosmetic lines like NYX and Nudestix, have created the lip duo pen that makes creating this look super easy. Here’s a look at some of the hottest ombre lip combinations and where you can find easy to use ombre lip pens.
