Women had been applying lip colours, lipsticks etc. in the same traditional way for ages and now they needed something new and trendy, something that could accentuate their look instantly without taking much effort or time. So, the innovative dual-tone lip look was introduced, this is basically either a gradient effect created over the lips using lighter and darker shades or you may use two different shades for it too. So, if you really want to take your makeup looks a notch higher then read this guide to creating a dual-toned lip colour technique.

Moisturize Your Lips Before Starting

Well, this is one very important step that we tend to miss out, just because we are in a hurry or too lazy to do it. But applying chemical products on your lips, without nourishing them will result in dark and dull lips.  So, do remember to apply petroleum jelly, ghee or coconut milk on your lips at least half an hour before you're going to do your lip art.  This will enhance the appearance of your look and will also make it look smooth and perfectly finished. Otherwise, your lips will not look lustrous and will look chapped and flaky too.

To create this look, you need to apply a dark shade lipstick. Let it dry. Then in the centre of your lips start smudging a lighter shade. Make sure not to take the colour to the corner of your lips. Use an earbud for a better smudge.  Now let it dry and walk the streets in style. Use a concealer to cancel out the extra smudges.

This look is very different from the other one. Both, in terms of appearance and how you make it.  To do this look, line your lips with the liner of your favourite colour. Then, apply a dark shade of your favourite colour lipstick and let it dry.  Afterwards, apply a lighter shade lipstick of the same colour on the corners of your lips and use concealer to create a sharp look.
