One of the biggest trends to hit the fashion scene has been Ombre; the sublime grading of colours from light to dark in complementary shades has taken the world by storm. It's become a common theme for weddings, from the invites to the cake, and has been spotted in home décor as well. This year the Ombre trend has gone up a notch and is the must-have beauty look of the season! Here are a few ways to add Ombre colours to your life.
You know how eye shades come in fun colours but you never know what to do with them? This is the best way to add colour to your eyes and really make them pop. It's kind of like a coloured smokey eye that starts in a darker hue near your lashline and fades out towards just above the crease of your lid. Why not add coloured mascara for a bolder burst of the eye shadow you're sporting?
When it just wasn't enough to have ombre attire, the trend moved on to various other forms, like hair. As seen here on Drew Barrymore, the style statement is great for brunettes that can also carry off a blonde hue. Take a risk by adding red to the ends for a more bold look.
Ombre Lips are an unexpected take on the Ombre trend. It's high fashion with a daring combination of colours or can be fun with a more subdued combination. When chartering into Ombre makeup territory, the key is to go with colours that work for you. The easiest and most natural way to do Ombre lips is by lining and colouring your lips in a dark shade and then filling the inner lip with a neutral colour. Try it tonight!
Nail art is forever evolving, it's a mini canvas and styles are getting more complex but Ombre Nails are easier to achieve than they look. The essential to getting the look is a triangle makeup sponge. Soak the sponge in water for a couple of hours, squeeze out the excess moisture and paint the thinner edge over with three shades of grading nail colours. Press the painted end of the sponge onto your nails and paint over the polish with a top coat to smooth it out. Reapply polish to sponge for each nail. Easy!
If that's too complicated, just buy five shades from the same colour family and paint each nail with one shade!
