Grunge Makeup Tutorial

Urban Decay 1993, Nars Dolomites, Nars Sin, Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet It’s no secret I am utterly obsessed with the reddish brown from the Nars Dolomites palette and I swear I’m about to hit pan so in desperation I’m considering Anastasia eyeshadows order. I mean, Red Earth and Morocco are to die for but onto the tutorial… I thought I’d share with you my take on the grunge makeup.

But it’s actually a real story. Sadly, Honeylove was sold out but I did initially only ran out to get Groundwork right after both Anna and Tamira mentioned it in their July Favourites. It’s just the most beautiful warm medium brown shade. And it’s matte. I feel like it might even be very similar to Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes in Taupe, not as long-wearing though.
