SHE’S COME UNDONE
Beauty’s in a yin-yang mood. Meet the latest nod to the ’90s: grunge luxe. By EUGENIE KELLY
Grunge luxe looks with a ’90s feel.
There’s a distinct ’90s mood in the air right now, but although the underlying tone is grunge, there’s polish to it this time around. She’s a glamorous tomboy.and a red-carpet rebel. Someone happy to devote an hour to an immaculate eye — but who leaves the house without lipstick. And these definitely aren’t leftoverfrom-the-night-before looks … What didn’t work back in the ’90s (pencil-thin eyebrows, anyone?) is now superceded by effortless elements that are timeless.a thicker, fuller, more natural brow; a chic, moody manicure; a full-on eye; and barely-there, polished foundation. “She may boast the strength and experience of a woman, but she’s ruled by the free spirit of a teenager,” explainsvictoria Baron, makeup artist for Chanel, who created these looks. “It’s undone glamour. If you’re going for a grungy liner look it needs to be paired with an element of chic.the eyes are definitely the statement, but they don’t always have to be perfect. They tell the story of a night.”
