HOW TO MAKE IT WORK A COUPLE MORE THINGS…
Always apply primer over eyelids to keep your product in place for longer and to avoid smudging.
Opt for soft, neutral lips to avoid looking OTT – your eyes should always be the main focus.
Use a liner pencil or crayon to create the shape first, then colour in for a neater, stronger finish.
Practise this look a couple of times to get it right – the stronger colour can be a little daunting at first.
Finish with lashings of black mascara.
If your lashes are sparse, pack more of a punch with a set of false lashes. This will make your eyes look darker and add a flirty edge.
Try to avoid overdoing the blush and bronzer as this could overpower the overall look, making it more drag-queen than cool-girl grunge.
The hype about the modern grunge look is the matte face! Choose a foundation and mattifying powder that are thicker in coverage and will even out your skin tone perfectly.
