The Korean gradient lips remain one of the most important trends in 2017, so if you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon, you really should!
We understand why if you haven’t. It may seem cumbersome to blend out two lip shades to get the “bitten lips” look, and other times the need to apply lip balm constantly to hydrate our parched lips interferes with the gradient lips that we have painstakingly created.
How is it that our favourite Korean celebrities are able to sport gradient lips that look on point all the time?
Daily Vanity asks top Korean beauty brand LANEIGE for the insider’s tool of the trade, to find out how you can create flawless gradient lips that look like what you see on Korean celebrities.
Hey, and stay till the end of the article to enrol in an exclusive Korean makeup trends and techniques masterclass with an expert!
The product that can help anyone create perfect gradient lips
Whether you’re a makeup newbie or veteran, you’re going to appreciate an easy tool to help you create gradient lips effortlessly. The LANEIGE Two Tone Tint Lip Bar (SGD32) has launched on 5 January, and is the newest innovation to perfect your Korean makeup look. Here’s why.
1. Tint meets balm innovation
Formulated with the power Moisture Wrap technology used in the signature LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask, this tint-meets-balm product offers a moisture-rich network so that your lips remain hydrated all day by locking in moisture securely.
With this product that has built-in properties of a sleeping mask into the formula, time-strapped girls (and lazy girls) will have no problem rocking flawless-looking gradient lips even when they haven’t prepped their lips properly.
We also love the precise “V” cut design of the new LANEIGE Two Tone Tint Lip Bar, which is created to keep the outer areas of the lips moisturised while allowing the “tinting zone” to look outstanding in one single swipe.
2. There are eight gorgeous colours for you to choose from
You’ll also be happy to know that eight new and beautiful shades are available in the new range of lip bars. You’ll definitely find one that you love, if you haven’t fallen in love with all of them!
Fun fact: Did you know the shades were inspired by sweet desserts?
Psst, #3 Tint Mint and #8 Cherry Milk were developed by LANEIGE’s ambassador Lee Sung Kyung. Watch what inspired her!
3. Create gradient lips effortlessly
Use the new LANEIGE Two Tone Tint Lip Bar to create gradient lips the easy breezy way. It only takes four simple steps!
Step 1: Apply the Two Tone Tint Lip Bar, with the darker tint of on the inner lower lips.
Step 2: Flip the Two Tone Tint Lip Bar over, and apply the darker tint on the inner upper lips.
Step 3: Close the lips together gently.
Step 4: Open the lips to blend the colour border for a natural gradation.
