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.
