Kissable Orange Gradient Lips [Tutorial]

I officially announce that lipstick and eyeshadows are the new obsessions of mine for the year 2014!

Remember my first lip product haul from Essence which I shared a few months ago? Click here to read the full entry.

Since I already have a pink and red lipstick, I wanted to try making orange-coloured lips which is very popular in Korea right now, especially orange gradient lips! I love seeing K-Pop idols with their gorgeous gradient lips but when I saw Xixi's tutorial on achieving gradient lips (here), I got discouraged from trying it even though it was absolutely gorgeous....because I'm too lazy....The need to conceal the colour of my lips is too troublesome to the lazy ass me, so I didn't bother giving gradient lips a try at all.

However, after watching a lot of Ulzzang photos on Instagram, I decided that it's time for me to stop being so lazy. That's why I went out and bought an orange lip lacquer. It's my first time trying out a lip lacquer (never heard of lip lacquer ever in my life before I bought this) and I found it really interesting - it has relatively higher colour intensity compare to ordinary lip gloss, but I personally don't like wearing it alone because it tends to be rather dry (not sure whether is it just because I have not been taking care of my own lips or whatsoever), so I used it to create gradient lips :3


Today, I'm going to share with you all my very 1st attempt on achieving watery orange gradient lips by using my own lazy-person method!

I skipped the part where you have to conceal your lip colour and I didn't even bother using a brush ><


These are the products that I used:
Essence XXXL Shine Up Lip Gloss #23 Dazzle Glow (around $1.50)
Nivea Hydro Care Lipbalm (around $3.50)
Savvy High Shine Lip Lacquer #1213 Bright Lights (around $7.90)


Step 1: Moisture your lips with a lip balm. I'm using my Nivea Hydro Care Lip balm here but you can use whatever lip balm that you have.


Step 2: Dot a few dots of the orange lip lacquer in the middle of your top and bottom lip.


Step 3
: Spread the colour all over the middle part of the lip. Don't get it all over the entire lip.


When you are done, you will have something that looks like this. If you want the colour to be more striking, you can add a few more drops of lip lacquer on your lips. However, I personally prefer a moderate tone, something like a peach orange colour, so I'm sticking to this.


Step 4: Press your lips lightly on a piece of tissue paper.


This is to get rid of the excessive lip lacquer to avoid a mess later on.


Step 5: I applied the Essence Shine Up Lip Gloss around the orange colour which I spreaded just now to give the lips a watery and juicy feel ^^

That's all! It's all done now ^^ This whole process took me less than 2 minutes! As I said, lazy person method! HAHA! I'm the ultimate lazy bum so trust me with my tutorials because they are meant to be super easy and most importantly, fast!



I'm ending this blog post with some selfies with my new toy - my ukulele!

All the best in trying this tutorial and don't forget to wear this look with a smile :D

That's all for today. I'm hitting the zack now because I have to go to work tomorrow and study A LOT. I hate mid semester exams >< Good night my unicorns xx
