90's Grunge Shoot

Greetings, sweeties! I've been super busy lately with college, interning and my little family, but I'm too excited to not share these pics with you. A friend of mine does photography at university, and she had an assignment coming up involving fashion, so she asked me to do the styling and makeup for her shoot. Her theme was 90's grunge and if you google it, it was totally extreme back in the days. Obviously we wanted to re-create it but at a rate of keeping it really minimal.
As someone who's excruciatingly terrible at applying makeup, to do the makeup for this shoot was quite a challenge, but a fun one at that. It definitely turned out much better than I ever expected it to so I'm really actually quite proud of it. Of course I don't think I'll be pursuing anything in beauty artistry, but it was a fun experience.
Well, we had the shoot yesterday at the photographer's photo studio, and it was a ton of fun. Definitely would love to work with these girls all over again!

Anyway, you probably want to take a look at the photos now, so here you go!
