Grunge Makeup : Tips and Guide For A Remarkable Makeup

What's Grunge Makeup?

Today, it seems to be just a fad word for someone doing an extreme smokey eye.

For those who were schooled on makeup and did it at the same time, what exactly does true grunge makeup really consist of? 

Does it have any substance to it at all? In this article I am going to explore a little bit about the theory behind this trend and how it has affected our society today.

You've probably heard that the first thing that you need to do when applying your makeup is to avoid glitter. This is because this is what draws attention away from your eyes. However, if you do this, you will miss out on the most important ingredient of the makeup - liner.

You see, when you use heavy layers of eyeliner, the liner can last for a long time and it will never go off. That's because it is quite waterproof.

Most of us don't know that the matte finish that you are using is actually quite flattering. You see, your eyelid will look like it is wide and even, but underneath this layer of liner you are seeing darker skin colors and dark veins. This means that if you look natural, your eyes will look a lot bigger.

How To Apply Grunge Makeup In A Better Way

If you really want to create a smoky look, then I would suggest using mascara. It makes your eyes appear much larger and more prominent, which is why many women use it with their eyes. This is especially good if you don't want to draw much attention to your eyes.

It is best that you try to match your eyeliner with different colors in your eyes. This is because there are lots of different colors that look good together.

For instance, you can always opt for purple or blue, or even a few different colors of green. 
This way, you don't have to worry about making one eye stand out more than the other.

Make sure you do your eyeliners and blushers as close to each other as possible. You can always alternate the two, but make sure you stick to the same color.

Lastly, you should keep your colors consistent and never mix up your make up. This is something that people tend to do quite often. 


Don't mix and match between your foundation and your lipstick - this is not the way to go, as the two don't go together.

Also, don't wear too many different eye shadow colors. There are too many colors out there for you to wear every day. 

If you wear more than one color, then make sure that the rest of the make up will blend in perfectly, or you will end up looking more like a clown than a person.

Finally, you should make sure that the colors are not too bright or too dramatic. For instance, if you have dark skin and dark eyes, then you need to avoid wearing a lot of pink or blue.

To achieve the best effects of grunge makeup, you also need to make sure that you choose a natural color for your lips. This way, your eyes will look much more natural, because your lips will be the focal point of your face.

To finish up your grunge makeup, you need to clean your face thoroughly. Use a good face wash, and make sure that it is completely dry.


Finally, you need to make sure that you apply a few little blush to the ends of your lashes and your bottom eyelashes. This will make your eyes look more natural.

Good Luck and Stay healthy!
