Get The Look: Dramatic Grunge

With 90’s grunge storming back onto the catwalks it seems the statement eye is out to challenge the bold lip this Autumn/Winter 2013.

Stripping it back to its roots, think black, think bold think drama!

What we love about this trend is how versatile the looks you create can be, adapting its key elements to suit eye shape and colour.

Our favourite three interpretations this season are adaptable for both day and night looks. The key factor is to build up the grunge eye trend in steps in order to achieve the effect suitable for your event.

Autumn Grunge look

Our 3 Key essential eye looks


Line it


We have started each eye look with applying a set of dramatic lashes from the Dramatic Lash Collection. Show off your personality with a defined line both above and below the eye. We used the Studio Flat Eyeliner Brush to create a structured line under the eye and on the lid ending in a slight cat eye flick. Keep the grunge feel by using loose Mineral Eyeshadow instead of a pencil but remember to tap the brush to remove excess product before application.

Blend it


The smoky eye is a beauty safe go to but add variety by blending under the eye for more dramatic impact. We used the Studio Small Smudge Brush to smudge the Mineral Eyeshadow along the lash line and a Studio Eyeshadow C Brush to erase any harsh lines, continuing the smoky effect across the lid. Change up the colour to personalise the look and to co-ordinate with any outfit.

Extend it


Extending the colour out in a winged effect is a great way to add dimension to this look. In order to get precise application we used the Studio Precision Brush; Firstly wetting the brush and blotting so damp and then working the product onto the brush in the eye shadow lid to create a paste formulae. When dry, the shadow looks almost grey which adds an industrial rock feel to the look – perfect for a gig.

To finish each look, some perfect add on features would be a flick of Defining mascara and an Eye Widener pencil to brighten the corners of the eye and possibly the water line.

Our Get The Look: Dramatic Eyes set includes the Dramatic Lash Collection, a Mineral Eye shadow in either Seductive or Royal, a Defining Mascara and a Studio Conditioning Lip Balm in Nice and Natural all for a discounted price of £9.63!
