The different ombre looks you can try
Dark to light
As the name suggests, the look basically has dark and defined lines and go lighter towards the inside of the lips. To decide the colors, pick a dark shade pencil color for the outline and a lighter shade in similar hues for the inside of the lip. Moisturize well and start by defining the outline in multiple strokes. Now use the lighter shade and blend it. Gloss it up. Your first ombre look is ready.
