Is Ombre Make Up Hot or Not?

Ombre hair? Ombre eye shadow? Ombre nails? This beauty trend has been spotted everywhere, from street style blogs to celebrities to the runways.

To get an ombre manicure: Pick a color, like OPI I’m Not Really a Waitress ($8.50 at Amazon.com), and pour a dime-sized amount into five small pots or plates. Take a white nail color, like OPI Alpine Snow ($7.99 at NailPolishPro.com), and mix it in increasing increments with the darker shade, making each one lighter than the last. Use toothpicks to mix the shades together, then take a clean nail polish brush and apply the different shades to your nails. 
To get ombre eyes: Use a shadow compact like YSL Ombres Duolumieres ($41 at Sephora). Apply the lighter color to your lids, then apply the darker shade to the corners of your eyes and smudge up and to the sides with the applicator.

    Personally, I do not see how you cannot see ombre as a great style.
    The people that instantly say ombre is NO WAY UGLY are narrow minded.
    Only fashionable people are able to try out new makeup style trends. They are people who are not afraid to take risks to look great.
    Ombre is a style substantially for the great, and not for ones who hate. ;P
