Ombre has been making the fashion headlines in recent months, so here’s how to highlight this pretty trend in your holiday style.
Ombre hair – Dying your hair in this style is not exactly something I would suggest doing DIY, but if you are considering coloring your hair anytime soon and are feeling brave, you should totally give this a shot, with your hair stylist at the helm that is!
Ombre nails – You can do this two ways. One, by painting each nail a slightly different color so you have a progressive color palette, or you can turn each individual nail ombre by painting the top and the bottom two colors and gently blending them in the middle while still wet.
Ombre lips – Now this is my personal favorite ombre incarnation. You can keep things subtle just to add dimension, or you can throw caution to the wind and just go for it! All you need are two or three different shades of lipstick. Fill in your lips with one color, blot, add the second color to the center of your lips, blot, and add a tiny dab of the third color in the middle if you want to. As far as color layering, always start with the darkest shade and work your way up to the lightest. I have done this look with a deep red layered with a bright red, but I’ve also done it with deep red and soft coral and had it turn out wonderfully, so please feel free to experiment with ombre to your heart’s content.
