8 Essentials to Add Punk to Your Beauty Portfolio


With the Met Ball right around the corner, there have been many reports of attendees having trouble finding something to wear. If they can’t find something to wear, what’s to become of the rest of their look? Never fear as we took a look back at what made (and continues to make) punk unique. Smudged liner? Not a problem. Rainbow of eye shadow? Ok in our book. Spidery lashes? Why not? Other than the movement’s do-it-yourself mantra, a perfectly imperfect look is one to keep in mind with an anything-goes attitude to match.
