Grunge Inspired Makeup Look | NinkComPoop

 

Hello, loves!

Since I was around 15 years old, I always struggled with owning a label. Was I a typical girly-girl or do I prefer alternative fashion? If I think flannel or faux leather looks awesome, then why do I occasionally wear floral? It took me years to realise that I don’t need to have one set label. I do, and I can, chuck on whatever I happen to be loving at that point in time.

One of my favourite things to do is experiment with dark, smokey, and gothic tones – so today I was requested by you guys to create a grungey look. Lets get going!

Eye Shadow

The eye shadow was my favourite part of the process. Huge props go to Blank Canvas’ Master Series palette. This palette never lets me down! I was able to use three colours from the palette for my crease, inner corner, and transition shade. The other fab thing about this palette is the brush that it comes with; it is a double ended blending/applicator brush which is incredible for blending. I managed to blend this crazy dark look just fine (which is usually such a struggle).

This look made me fall in-love with Mac’s ‘Stroke of Midnight’ palette all over again. The beauty of this palette is that it holds the blackest of black and whitest of white shades. Those are two very handy colours to own! For this look, I used the white, gold and black. I popped some more white over the inner corner, black over the brown, and the gold for under my eyes.

After applying the gold under my eyes, I then went back to the dark brown on my Blank Canvas palette and applied it on my waterline.

Eyeliner and Mascara

At the mo, I have been loving my Barry M eyeliner that I bought on a whim. It lasts all day and is easy to work with. For this look, I ensured that I applied it really thick. Then to finish the eyes, I used my trusty Maybelline Lash Sensational.

Contour

For my contour, I wanted to use something that will bring out my natural pale skin (sob). I used my Contour Kit by Beautiful Brows to both highlight and define my cheek bones. This kit is one of my favourites and it’s creamy consistency is a dream to work with *drools*.

Lips

The last and final step! In my opinion, this was one of the most important steps for this as you can’t achieve the perfect grungy look without some dark, gothic lips. I achieved these gorgeous dark lips by using Mac’s ‘Night Moth’ lip pencil and Avon’s Perfect Reds lipstick on top.

And ta-da! (With a bit of hair crimping) the look is complete…
