One of this year’s biggest fads is the Ombre effect and if you have been keeping up with hair or nail techniques you have certainly seen it. The word “Ombre” is French and basically means shading or graduation. It refers to the graduation of color from darker to lighter. Now that the Ombre effect has conquered the hair and nail industry, it makes sense that the next step will be for it to spill over into makeup. Ombre lips and eyes are quickly popping up everywhere. Creating Ombre eyes is the easiest and most effective way to add this impressive effect to your look. With the ability to incorporate any variations of colors, the possibilities are endless. Here, we are going to show you some Ombre eye and lips ideas. Remember, you can wear any color you choose, just make sure you create a gradient effect keeping it darker on the bottom and use lighter shades of the same color as you move up the eyelid.
