Korean Ulzzang Gradient Lips Tutorial ~립 그라데이션 테크닉

Sealed by a kiss~! Gradient lips has become a trend especially in Asia, and this style are often done in many korean dramas, and very very popular among ulzzangs. You might have seen this too somewhere ^-^, I personally like this lips make-up because it gives innocent look to girls, and gives youthful look to grown up woman. I have several versions of gradient lip look and the version I'm doing today is the more intense one, I call it a CHERRY POPSICLE lips ^^


Cherry popsicle lips~♥
It makes me look like I had just been eating a CherryBerry popsicle, I did this many times when I was a child! So let's check the tutorial, shall we? (It's going to be a rather long post with lots of pictures of my lips, so bear with it~!)

Since the pictures I made doesn't go into much details, I'm going to explain the step by step tutorial of achieving the Cherry Popsicle gradient lips style here. Technically, the lighter shade is applied on the outer edges and the darker shade is applied on the innderside of your lips.

♥TIPS♥ Lip Preparation: you'll be layering tons of product on your lips and you don't want the products to clung onto every lines on your lips, resulting a clumpy look. >_< Make sure to apply a lipbalm the night before and exfoliate in the morning, the product used will glides on smoother on your soft lips~♥

Lip Gloss Gradient Lips~How to:
1. After exfoliate, apply a layer of lipbalm. You may also use a clear non-glossy lip primer.
2. Apply any milky tint you have (I'm using Etude House Fresh Cherry tint peach) to your WHOLE lips evenly, upper, lower, innderside, and outerside. With this, you now have a pair of lips with good and pretty undertone.
3. Now, this is the most important thing, apply lip concealer (you may substitute it with BB cream or foundation) only on the outer edge of your lower lips, and apply it thinly on your upper lips. The concealer will even out any unwanted dark pigmentation on your outer edge of lips, makes them appear smaller.

4. Now, you will need a very pigmented lip tint (I use TONY MOLY lip tint in cherry pink), Dab the color accross the center of your lower lips, starting from inside. Blend it will your finger/brush. (using lip tint wth watery consistency is recommended.)
5. To make the gradient looks better, swipe a light colored lip tint around the rim of the darker color you've applied before, it will creates a perfect gradient. Then apply it on upper lips lightly. Be sure not to apply the concealed area.

♥TIPS♥ I know that we often tempted to smack our lips after each application, if you want to smack your lips together, do it lightly :)

Now I'll be using a lip gloss to give a finishing touch! You'll need two shades, one should be darker than your natural lips, and one should be very nude.
6. Take your darker lip gloss and dab the color on the innerside of your lips, starting from inside. Again, remember not to let the darker gloss goes onto outeredge area of your lips.
7. Take your nude lip gloss, and swipe a little bit of the color on the outer edge of your lips. Blend well with the tip or lip brush. DONE~!

Here's the finished look of Cherry Popsicle Glossy Gradient!


My camera is exaggerating the color. >.<  The color looks vivider and makes me a lil bit vampy, but actually it looks more natural in real life.
(Products used: Luview Glossy Kiss, Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in peach, Etude House Color Me Nude, Tony Moly lip tint in cherry pink, The Face Shop lovely me:ex tint.)

And now, for those who want to skip all the hassle, you can still achieve this look easily, here's how I do it:

Easy Gradient Lips ~ How to:
1. Undertone is a key, undertone your whole lips first with any milky tint you have and apply a concealer on the outeredge of your lips. Blend in with your finger.
2. Dab a little bit of pigmented lip tint (watery consistency) to the innerside of your lips, starting from the inside. Be sure you're not overdoing it. Use your finger to blend the color.

DONE! if you want 3D finished look, you can apply a clear lip gloss afterwards. ^-^ (I use B&C Makemania Curvy Lip Silicone) However, this version looks more natural irl. (Product used: Tony Moly lip tint in cherry pink, Etude House color me nude lip concealer, Etude House fresh cherry tint in peach.)

Very easy to accomplish!

This is how it looks with indoor lighting, more natural isnt it?


And for the products... basically you can use any type of lip tint, lip gloss, or even a lip stick. But I prefer to use lip tint because it stays longer.

♥KEYPOINT♥ The perfect gradient could only be achieved by using products with a same undertone. Pink to peach is still acceptable. For example, red to pink is good, but red to peach won't make a good gradation.

Click the link to read my reviews for each products ^^
Luview Glossy Kiss, Etude House Color Me Nude lip concealer, Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint, THE FACE SHOP Lovely Me:ex tint, TONY MOLY lip tint.

So that would be all! You can create your own version of gradient lips ^-^ In general, the less intense the color is, the more natural it would be. So this is my intense and vivid version of 'CHERRY POPSICLE' gradient lips.

♥LAST NOTE♥ If you find this too intense for you, you can reduce the amount of pigmented tint used.

I hope you girls enjoyed this tutorial and I'd be happy if you find it helpful. ^-^ And if you like the tutorial, you can follow my blog too~ it would be greatly appreaciated! Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon~

  78. Oops, it seems like I ended up looking through your blog again ^^

    This is one of the reasons why I want a lip tint.. I'm still looking for the perfect orange one. I'm thinking about buying the Etude House NEON Darling tint but it's not really suitable for school.. Maybe the Etude House Cupcake all over colour in their Sweet Recipe range would be better ^^
