How to Use a Lip Palette for a Pretty Spring Pout How to Use a Lip Palette for a Pretty Spring Pout How to Use a Lip Palette for a Pretty Spring Pout

When it comes to makeup, the colors you wear can create a serious statement—which means you want to pick the right shades. As far as your lips go, using a palette can help you create a custom look that truly stands apart from the crowd. Ready to switch up your makeup routine for spring? Here, find tutorials for unique lip ideas you can do with the help of three lip palettes from L’Oréal Paris.

How to Do a Berry Matte Metallic Lip Using a Lip Palette

If we learned anything from recent runway shows, it’s that matte metallic lips are about to have a serious moment in 2017.

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Plum

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prep your pucker. Before applying color, use a lip scrub to help exfoliate any dead skin cells from the surface of your lips, and follow up with a moisturizing lip balm.

Step 2: Prime your pout. Use a lip primer to help create a smooth base for your color application.

Step 3: Apply your color. #6 from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Plum is a dark berry shade that is perfect for this look. With the included brush, start by applying this base shade to the center of your upper lip. Work your way to the outer edges of your top lip, following the contour of your mouth. Then, paint the color across your entire bottom lip.

Step 4: Add a metallic sheen. Once you’re finished with that, use the brush to apply the highlighter shade (#8) over your lips to give them a metallic sheen.

How to Do an Ombré Lip Using a Lip Palette

Although the ombré trend started with hair, it’s this gradation technique is now popular when it comes to lipstick, too!

What you’ll need:

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Pink

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Break out the lip liner. Using a lip liner that is slightly darker than your natural lip color, outline your lips to help add dimension for the appearance of a fuller-looking pout. What’s more, using lip liner can also help prevent your lipstick from feathering into the lines surrounding your mouth.

Step 2: Start with your lighter color. Using the flat lip brush included with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip in Pink, blend the lighter of your two shades (#4) from the center of your pout out toward the edges.

Step 3: Follow it up with the darker shade. Since this look is all about gradation, take a darker color (#3) and apply it to the corners of your lips where you initially shaded with lip liner. Use your lip brush to blend everything together without making your lips all one color. This might take some practice, but you’ll be a pro in no time!

Step 4: Highlight and contour. Using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing & Contour Kit, apply a little bit of one of the lighter shades above your lip to accent your cupid’s bow, followed by a touch of one of the darker shades just below your bottom lip to create the illusion of a fuller, more luscious pout.
