How to apply gradient lips

Harnessing the charm of just-kissed lips or the remnants of summer popsicles, gradient lips concentrate pigment at the center of the mouth and are guaranteed to wear well.

  1. Working quickly, apply lip stain to the midpoint of your bottom lip, starting at its uppermost perimeter and going about halfway down. 
  2. Apply lip stain to the center of your top lip. 
  3. Before it has completely dried, blend the stain on your bottom lip out, but not all the way to the edge of your lips. Do the same to the top lip. 
  4. Apply lip balm for a seamless blend.
