Our lipstick stash has been collecting dust ever since we started wearing face masks on the reg. Not only is it difficult to find a lip formula that won’t transfer onto our masks, but considering our mouths are covered anyway, we’ve been more focused on our eye makeup. Lately, however, we’ve been missing our bright and bold lippies and have been experimenting with fun ways to wear them, if only for the ’gram. Enter two-toned lip looks, which are surprisingly easy to create. From the tame to the wild, get inspired to try the trend out for yourself with the six colorful lip looks below.  

Twice as Nice 

Can’t choose between punchy pink or bright orange shades? Wear ’em both. The vibrant colors look great together and serve major summer vibes. 

Heavy Metal

To get this mesmerizing ombré look, @adultsdrink used the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Roxy on the outer half of the top and bottom lips and The Lip Bar Everything Lipstick in the center. 

Outside of the Lines

For this graphic look, @tobeyoutiful_ overdrew the top half of the lips with a neutral shade, under-drew the other half with a neon pink hue and then did the opposite on the bottom lip. The result is some seriously cool geometric lip art.  

A Purple Pair

This two-toned purple lip seems difficult, but according to @kelseylipsz, with creamy formulas and a little bit of blending, you can recreate it in minutes.  

In a Flash 

Ready to put your skills to the test? Try this colorful lightning bolt lip look. You can use any two shades, but we love this playful combo of fuchsia and teal.

Think Pink

To add some texture and to create a crisp division between your two shades, add a stripe of metallic glitter. Here, @chloeybeauty used Lime Crime Diamond Dew Liquid Eyeshadow
