Grunge Makeup Look To Rock This Fall
8 Cool, Edgy Grunge Makeup Look How-Tos To Make Yourself Smashing This Fall
The late 80s and the 90s babies definitely understand the concept of grunge. It’s messy, dark, bold, and emotional. In fact, it can have some hints of goth! Well, guess what, times have changed, and our creativity, ingenuity, and nostalgia give us a more modern take on the grunge makeup era. So artistic are we I can give you 8 amazing grunge makeup look tutorials!
1. Let’s Go Classic
Dark eyeshadows and bold lips – these are two of the classic trademarks of grunge, which are surprisingly perfect for the fall season since they add more solid colors. However, since we’re all about updates, you can couple these with nude blush, winged eyes, or a beautiful blend of pastel and dark eyeshadows.
2. Let Your Sexiness Ooze Out
Grunge plus sexy? That might not have worked more than twenty years ago! But because we already have a wide variety of lippies that add not only color but also sex appeal, you can now be edgy but sexy at the same time! A plum and black smokey eyeshadow and a plum lipstick will do the trick.
3. Smacking Blue Lips
The idea black is the color of grunge has long passed. Besides, these days “experimental” is the name of the game. The quickest way to update your grunge makeup look is to change your lippy color! In this case, swap your black with deep blue. If you can’t let go of the reds, then how about shades that are close to them like the plum? If you want to experiment with bold colors I found this 6-pack matte lipstick in bold vivid colors, you have to check this one out!
4. Try Something Soft
Every time I think of grunge makeup, I always remember “excess baggage.” That means the mood and thus the overall look tends to lean toward something dark, goth, or emo. But since this is the future or the modern present (yup, I made that one up), you can go light – that is, wear the soft grunge. Go for a bronze smokey eyemakep partered with a mauvey brown lips! I like using this nude eyeshadow palette because it has a great mix of bronzey nudes and dark shades as well.
5. Let’s Bring Summer To Fall
Does it feel like soft grunge lacks color? Then go ahead and wear pastel grunge! It’s a great way to play with contrasts: light colors, bold makeup. Does it sound complicated? Well, not really. Just play with some pink reddish eyeshadow and plum lipstick and you can easily get this look.
6. Grunge All Night Long
Don your denim jacket, strap your boots, wear your fitted jeans and white V-neck shirt, and enjoy casual weekends for hours with this all-night grunge makeup tutorial. It requires only a few things for makeup and demands only focus on the eyes. Simple, easy, and quick.
7. Grungy Like Rihanna
Only a few celebrities can pull off the grunge look, and the Disturbia girl is one of them. She also shows grunge is actually for everyone, not just for people with pale or fair skin. In fact, it’s all about the attitude! While you’re at it, you might also want to check out another Nikkie tutorial and find out why Wanted is an amazing “grunge” color for you.
8. Be Polished And Glam
In this look, it’s messy hair out, sleek hair in. It’s a complete modern grunge transformation beginning with a dainty and elegant polish of the hair, so you can wear grunge and look glam. Just awesome for a formal party, don’t you think? Super pale lips and super smokey eyes? Super Fab a-la Kim Kardashian.
