The Two Tone Lip

the two tone lip

I think i first saw this on an Illamasqa news letter, since then the thought has stuck with me and I’ve just been itching to try it out! The two tone lip is where the colour on the top differs from the colour on the bottom. Perfect for those days when you just can’t decide between your two favourite lip choices!

I kept it pretty simple for my first try, by using red and pink but i suppose the look could be tested out with much bolder colours, for mine i used my Mac Lady Danger Lipstick and a recent addition to my lipstick collection the L’oreal Infallible Mega Gloss in the colour The Bigger The Better I love how it turned out, it was just a very subtle colour difference rather than being very in your face two toned. I did expect the colour to transfer quite abit and i was little nervous about that happening, being left with some weird looking lip colour but i was surprised at how little it did transfer!

Throughout the day i did get quite a few funny looks, so i don’t think the world my little town is quite ready for the daytime two tone lip. Although i think i will still be wearing this on nights out its so unique i just love it!

What do you think about the two tone lip? would you wear it?
