One of the hottest trends this year, if not the hottest, is the modernized grunge makeup look. This is a redefined look from the 90s and encompasses rich deep tones, heavy opaque makeup and pale ashy porcelain/ivory skin. The main focus should be the eyes; think full brows, dark mysterious eyes, and lots of eyelashes.
When it comes to the lips though, it’s at the extremes. On one hand you have lipsticks in deep shades of brown, garnet, black purple, midnight red and chocolate cherry. On the other hand you have the nude invisible lip, which is pretty much self-explanatory. etc and a deeply bronzed face. Grunge Make-up School LA
The Chic Street Grunge: Here the focus is on dark, sunken night-before looking eyes usually in yellow/brown or blue/brown shades. The eyeshadow is even textured from the lashes to just at the crease. Lower lashes are lined from corner to corner with matching eyeshadow or smudged matching eyeliner. The whole eye should be blended and polished off with several coats of dark brown mascara. Use a nude lipstick, lip primer, concealer or cream foundation on your lips to direct focus to the eyes. Many opaque nude lipsticks are very dry and unflattering to the lips. Look for a nude lipstick that has a satin finish or apply a heavy lip balm over it to keep lips from drying out.
The It Girl Grunge: This look calls for chalky matte skin a shade lighter than what you normally wear. The eyeshadow should be a brown/gray color with matching eyeliner on the top lids and outer corners of the lower lids. Add brown/black or black mascara to deepen the eyes. The lips demand full power bold rich coloring like maroon, garnet, double chocolate or oxblood. To help keep these dramatic hues in place use a good lip primer and lip liner to really grip the lipstick. Avoid wearing blush but if you feel that you look a little too “undead” then lightly dust on a touch of semi-matte bronzer around the edges of your face.
