How to: Badass make-up
Channel grunge with tousled hair, daring nails and plum lips
Think rock band groupie, then tone it down. This season, punk swung both ways – we saw staples like tar-black smoky eyes, OTT hair and black lips, and more accessible versions; think wines and plums instead of black, and mussed, slept-in hair. Here’s our round up of the best looks from the Spring/Summer runways and the products you need to DIY.

KISSED BY GRUNGE
There’s no one way to pull off an edgy goth lip. Luscious plums, violets or even mochas are all great colours.
TIP: If applied incorrectly, dark lip colours can appear cracked and messy. Ensure you buff your lips before, and keep your lipstick around in your purse to reapply whenever needed.
