My name is Kathryn Fernandez, and I'm a makeup artist in Los Angeles, California. Today, I'm going to show you a few tips for punk makeup. Okay, here's the deal, I'm going to do two different versions of the punk makeup. Just to kind of, give you a little bit of variety and to see which one you like more on yourself. Okay, this is what you'll need, I'm going to use black eyeliner, a pencil and then, black eyeliner with the gel. You're going to use a smudger brush for the gel and then, also a pencil for just black. Okay, let's get started. Okay, just to save a little bit of time, I've added a layer of concealer. Just to hide my dark circles, so that it's really, really obvious. The critical point in this is obviously black eyeliner all the way around. So, either version that you do. You know, it's just easier just to kind of emphasize that. Okay, the first version I'm going to do, is a messy version of the like, smudged eye for punk. So, what you're going to do, is you're going to take your gel liner and your smudger brush. And kind of, get like a good line going with your smudge. And then, literally just move the eyeshadow around. To kind of, like get a up sweep. And this can either be really clean and you know, almost look like it's airbrushed. Or it can be really messy, the freedom of punk. So, I'm just getting in there, I'm really making it kind of wispy, almost. Okay, so, if you can see, I'm bringing it up from the lower lash, to get the wing of it. And don't forget, I mean, really kind of grind it into your lash line. So that you can get that full effect and then, just bring it up. Okay, and then, the next step that you're going to do, is with your black eyeliner. Just go ahead and line the inside of your eyes. I saw this shape in a lot of the runway looks. And it can vary from shaped polished looks, with a slight haze on the wing. Or, you can actually just have like a really good, solid black. Okay, I just went in and cleaned it up a little bit. And this is just a quick, fast way to do it with a gel liner. But really it's whatever you want. So, that's for that look. This is really similar to the stuff that you'll see on like, the runway for this particular look, like the punky edge. And on the other side, we're going to do a little bit more traditional punk. And o.k, this is with the pencil eyeliner. So, you're just going to dive right in and this is basically the same concept. You're going to do black all the way around, it doesn't have to be perfect. In fact, it probably looks a little bit better if it's not perfect. So, I'm just going to take the smudger brush, or you can use a sponge applicator. Just give a little bit of you know, that morning after smudge. Okay, so as you can see on this side, it's really just kind of rough and rugged, I mean. Almost like if you apply the eyeliner and then, slept overnight. The next morning, this is what it should look like. So, it's a good place to start for punk makeup. So, don't be afraid, it shouldn't be perfect, it shouldn't be even. It should be smudgy, in a mess and edgy. That's how I apply punk eyeliners, thanks for watching.
