Due to the pandemic, we’ve had to get creative with our makeup looks and based on what we’ve seen on the runway and red carpet, bold, punk looks are trending. This year lipstick continues to take a backseat and it’s all about eye makeup. 80s-inspired punk makeup is making a major comeback and these are the looks to try out this spring. Are you ready to make a statement?

Smoky Eye

Seen on the Dior Fall 2021 Ready-to-Wear runway and on Doja Cat at the 2021 Grammys, smoky eyes are the perfect amount of messy and grungy, and they can even look glam on the red carpet.

Intense Liner

Intense liner was seen on Givenchy’s and Chanel’s Fall 2021 show and it makes the eyes the center of attention. Have fun with the look by using multiple color liners and don’t be afraid to go bold.

Pops of Color

Punk makeup doesn’t have to be gray and black, it can feature pops of bright pinks and blues, which Versace’s Fall/Winter 2021 runway showed. Pops of color looks great on any skin tone and they can elevate a makeup look while wearing a mask.
