Purple hair + a grungey/punk style

This months Elle was full of punk/grunge looks that had come straight from the catwalk, this inspired me (along with my new purple hair) to do quite a grungy outfit and make up look today. Firstly, the outfit; 

This slouchy oxblood top I bought from Next, the stud detailing along the shoulders gives it a perfect grungey vibe and it is very lightweight and comfortable. I thought I would step away from the predictable Dr. Martens and go with my (very scuffed) chelsea boots from Barratts. This little beaut of a bag I was lucky enough to win from Pauls Boutique when they had a twitter competition. The classic matte black design means it is timeless and will go with everything. The removable bag charm of brightly coloured punky accessories  make it work with this theme and will add a splash of colour to any outfit.

To create a 'lived in' punky make up look I drew a large eye liner flick and paired it with a smudged matte berry-pink lip stain. I gave my eye brows a little bit of definition but didn't want anything to look to perfect or neat, I also skipped out on mascara! P.S My hair is died with Live XXL, the wash-in wash-out purple!
