Ever interested in subcultures? But punk girls should definitely learn expressive eye makeup and durability of tone correction - after all, makeup should survive the concert

Despite the fact that the punk movement has already become history, the subculture is alive and fans of this style do not change the corporate make-up. And for those who have never shared punk ideals, some life hacks for expressive eye makeup will come in handy. We’ll talk about them, and at the same time we’ll find out how punk style makeup differs from rock style makeup and how to do it?

When is punk makeup appropriate?

Punk makeup (and rock makeup) is definitely not worth doing on a first date or wedding. In everyday life, it is also unlikely to look organic. But for a rock concert or a music festival, it will do just fine: it will be noticeable even in a poorly lit room and will not let you get lost in the crowd.

But it's better to think over the image as a whole. Such a bold, contrasting make-up will strangely contrast with a romantic flower dress. But ripped jeans, a men's shirt and rough boots will complement perfectly.

Punk Makeup Step by Step Photo Tutorial

You will need:

  • 'Absolute Delicate Micellar Water by L'Oréal Paris,

  • Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner,

  • Teint Idole Ultra Wear foundation by Lancôme - 035,

  • YSL Beauté Touche Éclat highlighter concealer,

  • NYX Professional Makeup Prismatic Eye Shadow - 07,

  • Giorgio Armani Rouge D'Armani lipstick - Nuda,

  • Urban Decay's Naked Cherry eyeshadow palette.

  1. Cleanse your skin. You can use, for example, micellar water "Absolute tenderness" from L'Oréal Paris.

  2. Wash with water and then toner to restore skin's pH.

  3. Prepare your skin for makeup application. For moisturizing, Toleriane Sensitive Creme from La Roche-Posay is useful.

  4. With bright eye makeup, the skin should look perfect. To even out the relief and skin tone, use Lancôme's Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation in shade 035.

  5. For color correction of circles under the eyes, use a liquid corrector. Follow up with YSL Beauté Touche Éclat Reflective Concealer under the eyes to even out skin tone and achieve a radiant finish.

  6. Fix your face with the NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Stick. Apply a light shade to the protruding parts of the face, a dark shade under the cheekbones to make the face look more sculpted.

  7. Set creamy textures with NYX Professional Makeup's Nofilter Dry Compact Powder.

  8. Duplicate creamy powder correction. This will help increase the durability of the result. You can use the NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette. For a he althy complexion, choose warmer shades. Save the blush for other looks. They are not very friendly with the rocker style.

  9. Finish your brows with an automatic wax pencil. Most of the pigment should be in two zones: on the bend and on the tip of the eyebrow. Then lightly emphasize the base of the eyebrow.

  10. Comb your brows and style them with clear gel.

  11. The first step in eye makeup is to work out the darkest areas, points of intensity. In this case, it is the mucous and ciliary contour. A black gel eyeliner will do the job. If you wear lenses, then instead of gel eyeliner, it is better to use a black kajal pencil.

  12. Now apply cream products. Take NYX Professional Makeup's Prismatic Eye Shadow in shade 07 for example. Sweep it over your upper lids and along your lower lash line.

  13. Fix the cream base with dry shadows. Use the Urban Decay Naked Cherry palette. For the area where the shadows blend into the skin, choose a light satin shade. Then fix the main eye makeup color. Work with a rich color on the upper and lower eyelids. Finally, duplicate the area along the lash line with the darkest color.

  14. Highlight the skin at the inner corners of the eyes with a highlighter.

  15. Finish your lashes well with black volumizing mascara.

  16. Apply Giorgio Armani's Rouge D'Armani lipstick in Nuda to lips.

Punk Rock Makeup Options

If wine color suits you, don't limit yourself to choosing the right lipstick. This color can be used to make up not only lips, but also eyes. Expressive burgundy smokey eyes and juicy gloss on the lips are a great choice for a concert.

Not ready for such bold experiments yet? Gray-black smokey eyes with shading, "stretched" to the temples, will provide the effect of a cat's look. We revealed all the secrets of smokey eyes in this video tutorial.

To make the image look complete, we advise you to pay attention to contouring. Apply a little more sculptor to the cheekbones than usual. And for lips, you can use nude matte lipstick or caramel gloss.

Love more feminine looks in pastel shades? Then get inspired by glam rock style. Use pink or, for example, blue eye shadow. And blush in this case will also be useful.

How to complete a punk look?

Punks are hard to imagine without special paraphernalia. If you decide to completely reincarnate, you can complement the image with one of these elements.

  • Iroquois or bright shades of hair. By the way, now it is not necessary to decide on radical staining. After all, there are products that will make it easy to change the image for just a couple of days, and then they can be easily washed off with a regular shampoo without harming the hair.

  • Ripped jeans, chunky boots, sneakers and a biker jacket are a win-win option for a punk look.

  • And don't forget about accessories: wristlets and leather bracelets with spikes.

Did you like the look? Would you dare to repeat?
