- The grunge makeup aesthetic is starting to trend again.
- Celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Billie Eilish have been seen in grungy hair and makeup looks.
- Take a look at these grunge makeup tutorials to perfect your grunge makeup.
Depending on your perception of “grunge,” you might be confused about hearing it describe an everyday, wearable makeup style. But trust us on this — the dark and moody movement is not only a fashion-forward look; it’s also one you should definitely try out yourself.
Though grunge style is synonymous with the ’90s (and created by Robin Sparkles/Daggers, obviously), it’s one of the many throwback aesthetics making a comeback. In the past, celebrities like Joan Smalls, Lorde, and Frances Bean Cobain have helped popularize vampy pouts, usually paired with matte skin and smoky eyes.
Today, the grunge aesthetic has taken on a whole newer (and even sexier) vibe. Celebrities like Billie Eilish and Kourtney Kardashian have perfected the art of grunge hairstyles (with the latter recently giving an absolute master class in the art of grungy bangs), and others like Megan Fox and Miley Cyrus continue to prove that grunge is what you make it.
Should you want to try your hand at the aesthetic but don’t know where to start, one of the easiest ways to do so is to swap out one step in your beauty routine for something with a bit more edge. Your eyeshadow, for example, could be upgraded from a simple winged liner to the diffused-eyeshadow technique seen during Fashion Week at the Altuzarra show. If you’re more of a hair person, take a page out of Kardashian’s book and try choppy baby bangs. You can truly do as much, or as little, as you want when it comes to a grunge aesthetic.
