Grunge Revival

I wanted to go low maintenance, but still bring a little drama, so I layered brown and black shadows from my  120 Color Eyeshadow Palette 2nd Edition ($16.95-$29.95) (I know, I’m using it too much and need to mix it up a little). I blended them up from the lashline toward the crease to create a one-dimensional, matte smoky eye that reminds me of the 90’s (AKA my favorite fashion decade ever). I also smudged a warmer brown along the lower lashline to keep the eyes defined but bright.

I skipped the eyeliner again, since I’m trying to avoid product overload in this warmer weather and went straight to the Diorshow Mascara ($25) to finish my lashes. Then I contoured my cheeks with Urban Decay’s Naked Flushed palette ($30) and slicked Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey ($15) on lips.

If you really want to amp up the 90’s feel, add a flannel shirt, plain banana clip and a dark berry lipstick. Here I mixed  NYX Round Case Lipstick $3.99) in Rapture and Chic Red. I feel like the girl with the most cake.

  1. Oh, Clinique Black Honey…that, plus Tenderheart, plus MAC lip pencil in Spice = every 90’s lip every!!
    The first thing I ever bought from Sephora (1997 or thereabouts?) was a brown lipstick. Ahhhh, brown lips!
