MOTD: Grungy Smoky Eye

Burgundy Smoky Eye
Excuse the brows!

I usually go for polished, neat make up looks so going for something that is a little rough around the edges always seems a bit weird. But one look I do love is a grungy smoky eye. I usually go for a burgundy shadow with an orange/red to blend as I think it gives that rock 'n' roll feel without being too dark.

I start off with the burgundy colour and using my MAC 217 brush, I buff the colour over my lid, starting in the middle an moving into the inner and outer corner. Then, I dip into the red/orange shadow, tap off the excess and blend from the outer corner up slightly above the crease. I add this under my eye as well. I then use a tiny dome shaped blending brush to smudge on some Kohl liner. I sometimes only do this on the bottom, but for this post I decided to line the top as well.

I was trying out a new mascara when I did this look, which turned out a bit too clumpy for my usual liking. But, because I was going for a look that was so rough around the edges, I decided to go with the flow and thicken it up. For such an extreme look, this only took my about 5 minutes to create as there is so little to it!

What do you guys think? Do you mix up your make up with a look you wouldn't normally wear?

    1. Thanks! Yeah I think as it gets warmer everyone wants something a bit brighter and it's always good to have something simple!
