GRWM – An Everyday Grunge Makeup Look

Hi, my beauty’s, hope all is well can you believe it’s nearly December which means we can start talking about the C word. No, not that C word I mean Christmas. Are you prepared for Christmas or are you like me leave it all to the last minute? Today’s post is all about my favourite go-to makeup look on the days when I can be bothered to make a bit of effort and wear something a bit more than concealer (that doesn’t even cover the bags anymore ?) and some mascara.

The Base

  • First of all, I prepped my skin following my skincare routine which you can read here.
  • I then applied a couple of pumps of the Rimmel Lasting Finish with Comfort Serum Foundation in 201 Classic Beige and buffed into my face and neck using the MORPHE M439 Buffing Brush.

  • I then applied the lightest shade of concealer from the Revolution Protection Palette using my finger (as it warms up the cream making it easier to apply and blend), to my eyelid and under the eyes in a triangle, down the centre of my nose and on my chin.
  • I then set this using a damp beauty blender and the powder from the Revolution Protection Pallete.
  • I then contour my face using the Benefit Hoola Bronzing stick, I apply this in the hollows of my cheeks, and on my forehead, I then buff this into my skin with circular motions using the real techniques contour brush. I then do the same with the contour powder from the Revolution Protection Pallet to set the cream contour.
  • I then applied blush from the Revolution ultra Blush Sugar & Spice Palette to the apple of my cheeks using the No7 blush. I have to be careful when applying this blusher as it is highly pigmented and you can end up looking like coco the clown, so I tend to dust the brush off on the back of my hand before applying.
  • Finally, I apply all the 3 powder highlighters from the Sleek Solstice palette using a fan brush to my cheekbones, browbone, Cupid’s bow and bridge of the nose.

The Eyes

  • First I applied the burgundy shade from the Barry M Fall In Love Pallete to the crease of my eyelids using an angled eyeshadow brush and buffed it In.
  • Secondly, I applied the Darkest shade from the same palette using the Real Techniques accent brush to the crease, outer corners and to line the outer lower lash line. I then buffed it in using the Real Techniques deluxe crease brush.
  • I then used the same colour that I used as blush and using my finger I applied this to my eyelid.
  • I then lined my upper and lower lash lines using the Marc Jacobs Highliner.
  • I then lined my upper eyelid and give it a slight wing using the NYX Epic Ink Liner.
  • Finally, I applied a coat of the Barry M’s Feature length Mascara to my upper and bottom eyelashes.
