Chances are, you have probably noticed the
ombre hair trend making the rounds in Hollywood, and on the runway. Maybe you have even taken the plunge and tried it yourself. But if you love the ombre look and want something a little less permanent, you’re in luck. Ombre has now made its way to makeup. Ombre lips have been showing up on runways for Monique L’huillier, Christian Dior, and Prabal Gurung, and celebs like
