The grunge look is the epitome of 90s makeup. With strong eyes and lips, it was a bold statement that is now back and hotter than ever. Get the best sort of attention wherever you go by replicating this grunge-yet-glam look.
What will I Need to Achieve the Grunge 90s Makeup Look?
- Smokey Eyeshadow palette
Step 1: Apply Foundation
Apply foundation with a brush. For this look, you can be bold and go for a tone a few shades later to really enhance the 90s grunge look
Step 2: Eyeshadow
Prime your eyes lids to ensure your grunge look lasts all day. After, take a dark bronze eyeshadow and apply all over your eyelid. Thoroughly blend, evenly spreading around your eyelid.
Step 3: Under the Eye
Using the same eyeshadow tone, apply under your eye to your waterline to really frame the eye.
Step 4: Smokey Eyes
Add a slightly lighter brown tone to the mix and apply above the eyelid, blending outwards. This will create a smokey look.
Step 5: Pencil your Eyes
Using a black/dark kohl pencil, apply the liner to your top and bottom waterlines.
Step 6: Bold the Look
With the same pencil, boldly line the top and bottom lashes. Remember you can be messier with this look so generously.
Step 7: Mascara
Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes. You can do 2 or 3 layers of mascara to achieve the 90’s makeup grunge look.
Step 8: Eyebrows
Keep the eyebrows natural so that the grunge eyes are the main focus. Brush through your eyebrows and then subtly fill out with an eyebrow pencil.
Step 9: Concealer
Use your concealer to blend under the eyes, neatening up any smudges and blending the look together.
Step 10: Contour
Next, lightly contour the face using a soft “3” motion. A typically desirable grunge look is pale, so contour sparingly.
Step 11: Lips
Choose a punchy colour to make your lips stand out. Line your lips for precision, before covering fully.
