Techniques and Tips Using Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick

Use a lip brush for precision blending, ensuring a smooth transition between colours without harsh lines. 

Set the look with a translucent powder to enhance longevity and reapply as needed to maintain the vibrant, matte finish throughout the day.


Preparation and Tools

Achieving the perfect ombré lips starts with meticulous preparation and the right tools. Prepping your lips ensures a smooth, flawless application that enhances the vibrancy and longevity of your look.

Prepping your lips

  • Exfoliation: Begin by exfoliating your lips to remove any dead skin cells. This step is crucial for creating a smooth base for even lipstick applications. You can use a lip scrub or a homemade sugar and honey mixture. Gently rub the exfoliant on your lips in circular motions, then rinse off with lukewarm water.
  • Hydration: After exfoliating, it's essential to hydrate your lips. Apply a nourishing lip balm to keep your lips soft and moisturized. This step prevents your lips from drying out, which is especially important when using a matte finish product like Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick. Allow the balm to absorb fully before moving on to the next step.
  • Priming: Priming your lips creates a perfect canvas for lipstick. Use a lip primer to fill fine lines and create a smooth surface. This not only enhances the lipstick's adherence but also prolongs its wear. If you don't have a lip primer, a light layer of foundation or concealer can be an alternative.

Tools needed 

  • Lip Brushes: A set of high-quality lip brushes is essential for precise application and blending. These tools help you control the application and achieve a seamless gradient effect for your ombré lips.
  • Lip Liners: Lip liners in complementary shades to your chosen Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks are crucial. They help define the edges and can be used to create a base that enhances the ombré effect.
  • Translucent Powder: A translucent powder is invaluable to set your ombré lips and ensure they last throughout the day. Lightly dusting your lips with powder after application helps lock in the colour and maintain the matte finish.

Application Techniques

Creating the perfect ombré lips look involves a series of precise application techniques. By following these steps, you can achieve a stunning gradient effect that highlights the versatility and beauty of Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick.

Applying the base colour

  1. Choosing the Base Color: Select a lighter shade of Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick as your base colour. This will be the foundation of your ombré lips and should complement the darker shade you'll use for depth.
  2. Application: Apply the base colour evenly across your entire lips. Start from the centre of your lips and work outward, ensuring complete coverage. The creamy texture of Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick makes this step smooth and easy.
  3. Perfecting the Edges: Use a lip brush or a clean cotton swab to clean up any edges, ensuring the base colour is applied neatly and precisely.

Adding depth with darker shades

  1. Selecting the Darker Shade: Choose a darker shade of Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick that complements your base colour. This shade will add depth and create the gradient effect typical of ombré lips.
  2. Application: Begin applying the darker shade at the outer corners of your lips. You can also add it along the inner parts of your lips for a more dramatic effect. Use a light hand to avoid overwhelming the base colour.

Blending techniques for a seamless transition

  1. Initial Blending: With a lip brush, gently blend the darker shade towards the centre of your lips. Use small, circular motions to create a smooth transition between the colours.
  2. Creating the Gradient: Continue blending until there are no harsh lines between the shades. The goal is a seamless gradient that softly transitions from the darker outer edges to the lighter centre.
  3. Refining the Look: For additional blending, use a clean lip brush to go over the edges where the colours meet. If needed, reapply small amounts of either colour to perfect the gradient.
  4. Final Touches: Once satisfied with the gradient, set your ombré lips with a translucent powder to enhance longevity and maintain the matte finish. You can also add a touch of gloss in the centre for added dimension and shine.


Mastering the basics of ombré lips with Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick sets the foundation for stunning, professional-quality results. By focusing on meticulous preparation, choosing the right tools, and following precise application techniques, you can achieve a flawless gradient effect that enhances your overall makeup look.

With your lips perfectly prepped, your base and darker shades applied and blended seamlessly, and your look set for long-lasting wear, you're well on your way to becoming an expert in this artful lip trend.
