Grunge Smokey Eye

Grunge smokey eye looked super cool at Marissa Webb Spring/Summer 2015 show. The makeup artist used highlighter on the cheekbones and nose bridge as well as the inner corners of the eyes, which gives the grundge makeup a bit of chic. Don’t blend the dark eyeshadow or pencil (depending on what you’ll use to create smokey eye) to perfection but let it stain the lid artfully messy and blend the roughest angles away.

Red eyeshadow

Red eyeshadow is generally hard to pull off so with smokey eye it will definitely be a challenge. The skin has to become a perfect smooth canvas without a flaw before red color touches the eyes. The red should be dusty rather than bright and can go together with black. It also looks better in creamy texture.

Blue eyeshadow

Blue is the hit of the season. It can be eyeshadow, eyeliner, or even a mascara but you can also go for a smokey eye. It will definitely look good on blue eyes especially. Choose a shade that suits you, don’t go for a clownish light powdery blue though.

Purple is another great hue for a smokey eye. Again go for dusty shades and pair with dark eyeliner if you want more depth. Be sure to earse any hint of dark circles first.
