Pretty Grunge Make-Up Tutorial: MAC at LFW

A couple of weeks ago at London Fashion Week I spent some time in the MAC Media Lounge filming two make-up looks – and this is the first, an interpretation of the ‘Pretty Grunge’ look that’s been seen all over the catwalks. In most of the catwalk looks this was seen in the sense of dark eyes, bare lips and no mascara. So this is a fresh and wearable interpretation of it that can be adapted as needed.

The video also stars one of my gorgeous friends (and bridesmaids!) Kate – who kindly came along with me to play model whilst I filmed.

Please excuse any amateur editing skills… I have basically no idea what I’m doing so learning through practice! Hope you enjoy – keep an eye out for the next video look coming soon!

Details of products used can be found in the caption section for the video.

    Such a lovely look and it looks so effortless when the MUA is doing it! Your chum looks great and did really well with all the eyeliner application and touching of eyeball areas, heehee!

      I love the final look with the pigment – looks so different applied than in the pot! He does make it look so easy doesn’t he?!
