FOTD: 90's Grunge Makeup

Living in Seattle this is one look I know a lot about because it's never left town :) Seeing "grunge couture" making the rounds in the fashion world again is almost comical. The 90's alternative and grunge scene is when I first discovered rock n roll and will forever be my favorite time in music. Speaking off, if you're ever in Seattle check out the EMP, they have a Nirvana Exhibit showing that is a must see. Viewing the personal writing's and having a behind the scenes look at the music is so enlightening ...Okay! I'm supposed to be sharing my makeup for the day not reminiscing about my teenage years.

"90's grunge" is a makeup look that I've been gravitating towards lately. Done in about 5 minutes it has that effortless "i don't give a f*ck" strung out glamour that was defined by women like Courtney Love and later Brody Dalle. One matte brown eyeshadow, or in this case a too orange bronzer doubled as eyeshadow, quick smudge of liner & mascara, red lip and you're ready to rock the town...or methadone clinic? ..kiiiddding :)

My fondness for the grunge look right now might have something to do with my faaaavorite new boots Steve Madden Women's Tarnney Ankle Boots I want to live in these everyday..for the rest of my life. & Nordstrom carry them, and I just found the gold spiked ones at my Nordstrom Rack for $99, scooore! check yours :)
