Korean Style Gradient Lips aka Bitten Lips Easy Ombre Lips- Indian way of achieving the look

Hey people..
Headed to my blog after a really long time. Most of you(all of you by now) may be knowing that I am being obsessed over Korea (specifically south Korea). It is like my latest obsession. I love everything about them. The people, the language, their skincare routine,KDRAMA,KPOP,food, culture.. like EVERYTHING about them just amazes me.
Coming to the point, 
I have slowly started copying their styles and to my surprise, I could carry them off too. I started off with chopping my hair and I now have thick bangs which is the basic style statement of koreans. Please tell me how I look. HERE is the picture
In this post, I am going to show how I created their quick bitten lips look.
Look at the pictures below, It is the latest trend.
Also, this has been incorporated by models and some kdrama actresses who actually made this gradient lips popular.
Though this style has been there for a very long time, It was created using two shades of the same lipstick colour which created an ombre effect. But Koreans in particular made it different. They lightened the outer corners of the lips and darkened the center so as it make it look as if its bitten. Well, in technical terms it is called the gradient effect.
Now that I have introduced you guys to this style, please check the way how I created mine.
Any tips and tricks are most welcome.

Lotus Herbals Absolute Anti-Tan Gel Review

Hey people..
I don't know if its a good time to write a review about a SunScreen Lotion or an anti tan gel. It is a mixed climate here in Hyderabad,India. At times it is sunny and I plan to wear some light cotton kurti before I leave home but I return home getting drenched because of the heavy rain.
But the truth is, these days I am only interested in writing the lipstick reviews or any makeup related posts and skin care posts have been lagging behind.
This time, I made up my mind to post it anyway. Here it is the review of one of the best matte sunscreens available in the Indian market.
It is from the house of the Lotus Herbals.
It is their Absolute Anti-Tan Gel SAFE SUN PA ++ SPF-30
About the Product:
A unique sunblock crème exclusively formulated to lighten skin and provide a healthy shield against skin tan / darkening caused by Sun’s UVA rays. Protect against all forms of UV damage: Sun Burn, Pre-mature ageing and skin cancer.
