I am going to sound totes dramatic, but hear me out. This 90’s Grunge Inspired Makeup Look was totes out of my comfort zone. Well not totes, but a little bit. It wasn’t the makeup itself that pushed me necessarily. It was the thoughts of a makeup theme that did. It’s kind of new to me.
As I like to reiterate all of the time, I am not a makeup artist. I just tend to stick to things I know that work for me. But I thought sure why wouldn’t this work for me? Matte brown smokey eyes, lashings of black kohl liner and a matte brown lip, I can do that! And sure I did!
It’s not perfect but thats the beauty of a 90’s grunge inspired makeup look. It doesn’t have to be. This weirdly represented something for me. A lot of makeup artists (or people in general), give beauty bloggers a hard time because they’re not technical enough. But if you’re just showcasing makeup on your face and talking pragmatically about products, I don’t really see it as any different as being a film or a food reviewer ? Makeup is subjective and we all do it differently and want to achieve different results. Anyways, I guess this convo is subjective too, so I’ll stop there 🙂
Here I am channelling my 90’s grunge chick. It was actually super simple as you will see in the video above or you can watch it directly here.
The main elements were Makeup Geek’s Tiki Hut eyeshadow. Urban Decay’s 1993 lip liner. I thought that was totally appropriate to use. And the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink which is you can see swatched here.
