Grunge makeup looks are sensuous and bold. You’ll need to go heavy on the smoky eye, whip out your red lipstick, and prepare to get messy.
The grunge trend is making a comeback, and we’re here for it. Baggy chemises, dark nails, and beaten-up sneakers—what’s not to love?
Grunge makeup is all about making a statement—get ready to make yours. We explore 6 grunge makeup looks to complete your gritty-sexy vibe.
1. Smoky Cat Wings

Cat wings pair perfectly with the grunge aesthetic: keep your wings thick and sharp.
Blend scarlet eyeshadow over your lids, and add wine-colored lipstick to finish up. If you want to make this look pop, add a touch of color to accent your inner eyelids!
2. Glossy Dark Pout

This grunge makeup look involves sheer black eyeshadow and voluminous lashes. Blend burgundy eyeshadow above your lids to emphasize the smoky eye. 
Use falsies for the best effect, and definitely don’t hesitate to go heavy on the lipgloss.
3. Subtle Beauty

If you want a subdued grunge look, this is it. Line your lids with black eyeliner—notice the flick on the inner eyelid. Blend white and gold eyeshadow on your top lid, and line your bottom lid with vermilion eyeshadow.
#4. Scarlet Gaze

Scarlet is a popular color in grunge makeup: it’s dark yet vivid. Draw on a cat-eye and keep the wings thin and razor-sharp. 
Liberally apply your eyeshadow around the entire eye—almost up to your eyebrows.
You can go for a pinker lipstick here, but try to stay within the deep-purple range.
#5. Neon Rockstar

If you’re eager to jump aboard the grunge trend but you’re a color-fanatic, check out this neon look. Bright colors were totally a ‘90s thing too—remember Lisa Frank?Apply bright blue eyeshadow with wings: angle the wing upward. Use pink eyeshadow for a contrasting halo. 
Finish up with bold, Courtney-Love-style lips.
#6. Sexy and Smudged

If you’re not big on lipstick, no worries—make your eyes the focal point. Use a shimmery dark grey, green, or black shadow all around your lids. 
Use a blending brush (or your finger, if you want) to smudge it up. As you can see, a dash of purple at your inner lid completes this grunge makeup look.
You can keep your lips nude or contrast with pale pink.

So I recently received the Mimi Co Exfoliating Wand via IG PR. I couldn’t wait to do a full facial and I decided to do it tonight. Order: I purchased a steamer from Amazon for $23 and I’m obsessed with it (DM me for product info). I started with UpCircle - Cleansing Face Balm With Apricot Powder As my oil cleanse to get my sunscreen from today off and any other oils and dirts. INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash This cleanser is perfect for getting dirts and oils from skin as well. It’s not drying and it’s totally worth it! I paired it with a face cleansing scrub brush, I also purchased from Amazon. I love it and I paid around $20 for it as well! It doubles the vibration frequency put out by Foreo. CLARISMA - Namaste Glow Energizing Face Mask This was the mask I chose for the enzyme properties. This breaks down dirts and oils in pores and dead skin cells. I also steamed my face during this time. Follain - Toning Mist: Balance + Prime This was what I sprayed over my face for the prep for my exfoliating wand. I didn’t have a true medium and I am out of Aloe Vera plants so😭 I then exfoliated with my wand starting at my cheeks and working upward and then to my forehead. I went down and to the sides of my nose. Glow slow! innisfree - Jeju Lava Seawater Lotion I used the toner to cleanse my skin and get any dirts left over from me exfoliating. SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I use this as my hydrating mask. I took the back of my Mimi Co Wand on switched to the Moisturizing Setting. I gently slid upwards my entire face for the last 2 mins only and then wiped the mask off with a damp cloth. earthtoskin - Tea Time Anti Aging Eye Cream This is the most hydrating eye cream I own. I used this with the back of my cleansing brush on the heat setting! Yes it made my eye feel so hydrated and relaxed. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer This was the final step as a good moisturizer seals in everything! To prevent acne I use the SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil as my last step. I didn’t use an astringent type toner, so I wanted to still treat my skin💚

That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?

Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
