The simplest use of two-tone lips can make your lips appear fuller. You can achieve this through highlighting and contouring makeup.
By putting white eyeliner on the center of your top and bottom lip, it creates a stronger 3D lip effect. It’s the perfect addition to your everyday beauty regime plus it’s quick and easy.

Another contouring and highlighting makeup trick is to put a lighter colour foundation, concealer or highlighter on your cupid’s bow. You can also experiment with different colours.
This look uses a matte high fashion finish in gold to draw the eye. You can also choose a lighter shade of your lipstick or something brighter for the summer sun. But, keep it matte for longer stay and the full effect.
Two-Tone Glitter Lips

If, like us, you lo-ove glitter lips then why not try your lipstick in one colour and the glitter in a complimenting shade. The easiest way to do this is to apply loose glitter.
By using a more glossy lipstick, you can make sure that the loose glitter stays put. Then pout and pose.

Ombre isn’t just for hair any more. You can also use it on your nails and yes, even your lips. Below is a simple two-toned lips makeup tutorial but if you’re feeling daring and creative why not try different colours.
The top image and above pic are perfect examples of what can be achieved. You can also use a glitter gloss over a matte lipstick to get more dazzling finishes.

You will also need a primer, lip liner, lipstick and translucent powder. First use a primer and apply your chosen shades of lip liner. Then add three coats of lipstick, using the blot and reapply method. I.e. one coat, blot, next coat etc. This gives added stay.
Finally, put a thin tissue over your lips and dab on the powder or directly use the powder, depending on how visible it is. This will give a matte finish and keep the lipstick where you want it. Now pucker up!
