The basics of grunge makeup, from winged eye liner, to smokey eye shadows, and easy lipstick ideas
First and foremost, we need to get the basics covered. There are a few, I would say, fundamentals to grunge makeup that should be considered, although nothing is a must every single time — grunge doesn’t really have any commandments like that. But just for reference, here are some of the basic yet stylish and aesthetic looks that can be achieved with a simple grunge makeup finish.
This shows a simple yet effective eye liner that can really do far more to a look than you’d think. It makes eyes pop and stand out, and is a favorite in the grunge scene. It’s called the winged eye liner effect, and this one has been done in a jet black finish — making it all the more bold and fierce.
Another fine example of a well-executed winged eye liner, so simple yet so effective. It’s enhanced even more by having a defined brow, with different angles and styles producing different yet measurably great results.
This shows how you can combine the winged lashes with other features for a more complete and extravagant look. The lustrous lashes add fullness to the eye, and I simply cannot get enough of full and plump lashes — can anybody?
This urban inspired look showcases how you can bulk up your eyelashes just slightly, and combine it with a light eye shadow to have a totally chic and picturesque appearance.
This look features a full and thick lash game that when combined with the striking eye liner really does make the eye pop and stand out. The black shadow is not overdone, but adds a little extra touch to the look. This one would be perfect for summer months — simple, easy, but well and truly enough to get the job done.
