Don't Be Scared Of Ombré Lips — They're Actually Totally Wearable, Promise!

Ombré, ombré, everywhere — so why not on our lips? We called in makeup artist James Vincent to show editorial assistant Vanessa how to get this gorgeous look on her pout — not because she's afraid to do it herself, but because she's so excited about it and wants to learn the best way to pull it off. Watch and learn along with her as James transforms her mouth into a veritable sunset of color. It's super-wearable, yet totally eye-catching (one of our favorite combinations in a beauty look). We hope the ombré trend sticks around a while longer, because now that we have this trick in our back pocket, we feel ready for anything.
