The ‘just bitten’ trend is an update on the ombre lips and looks best when teamed with minimal makeup on the eyes and cheeks.
To achieve this imperfect look dab Maybelline New York Color Sensational Bold Matte Mat 6 (RRP: 19.99) onto the centre of the lips directly from the bullet and press your lips together. Lightly blend the color outwards with your fingertips for the perfect stain of colour. Lastly, if you are looking for added texture, add a dab of powder pigment on the lips centre – try Maybelline New York Fit Me Pressed Powder (RRP $19.99).
