How To: Grunge Style Make Up

So yesterday I did a shoot and the brief was a bit rock/grunge for the make up. I can’t post the pic’s yet but I have attached an image of grunge make up taken from previous fashion weeks.

You don’t have to go all black you can mix it up and do black and brown so its not as heavy.

To create the eye:

1) Base the eye with a primer or concealer such as the Urban Decay primer.

2) Rim the eye with a black kohl pencil, top and bottom and in the waterline such as Smolder pencil from Mac.

3) Using a blending brush smudge the line on the lid, then apply the pencil to the lid and smudge with the blending brush. I usually do the process 2/3 times to build up the intensity.

4)Either take a black or brown shadow in this case a black shadow and blend along the upper and lower lash lineand in the crease of the eye.

5) Sharpen your pencil and then reapply the line along the upper lash line

6) Apply lots of mascara

Face:

Make sure to keep the face nude, use a sheer lquid foundation, lightly contour, dust a little pink blush to the apple of the cheeks and finish off by applying a nude lipstick.

Hope you enjoyed the post.
