A lot of Korean girls have been sporting the gradient lip for some time now. Even teen stars like Kathryn Bernardo and Nadine Lustre have obviously caught on this beauty trend. It's basically a soft bloom of color from the center of the mouth and the result is a super innocent and surprisingly flattering look that's perfect for your next barkada hangout.

Gradient Lips

We here at the Candy HQ are huge fans of fuss-free makeup looks, so we teach you how to achieve this in two steps.

  1. Use a lip tint (kawaii packaging is always a plus!) and dab a few spots of color on the center of your lips. Blend it out using your fingers and keep applying layers until you achieve your desired amount of color.

  1. Get your favorite concealer and nude out the outer rim of your lips, but be careful not to completely conceal your entire lip. Don't forget to blend so the look will be soft, like you just sucked on a lollipop. Instant cuteness, am I right?
