This Beauty Department 'Ombre Lip' is a wicked way to spruce up one's tired cosmetic routine.

Starring the endlessly popular ombre trend, the girls at the Beauty Department offer up a way to get more out of lipstick without switching shades. The look is created by using more pigment on top than the bottom, and controlling this by smearing and taking off product. This style can be easily achieved, and requires nothing more than a lip hue. Affordable, clear and impressive, this is one of the site's best tutorials yet!

Open to lots of interpretation and not appearing over-the-top or tacky, this is a wonderfully simple way to integrate the ombre trend into a makeup look.
