Remember how I said that I’m not very creative on my own, but can recreate tutorials with moderate success? Prime example coming right up!
This look was guided by the much better-looking and more talented Karima McKimmie:
I love grungy looks. The idea that you can look fierce while being a bit disheveled, a bit undone, a bit… un-pretty, is so up my alley.
That being said, I think my look, and by extension, Karima’s, are “pretty” interpretations on the grunge subculture. For a more accurate depiction, check out Sam of Pixiwoo’s tutorial:
I swear, Sam totally owns ANY look she ever attempts. She’s the ultimate badass.
Me, in comparison? I’m not so much grungy as I am just grubby. Womp womp.
I did put eyeliner in the lower waterline, like Karima did. However, I have yet to find ANY pencil eyeliner that will stay in my waterline. So, by the time I finished my makeup and sat down to take pictures, it had slid off and gathered into little boogers at the corner of my eyes. So sexy.

Incidentally, I broke the lipstick. I twisted it the wrong way, and the bullet has separated from the mechanism that pushes it up. The only way to get it out now is to turn it upside down and shake it. Annoying!
