“The 2014 tumblr makeup aesthetic is back. Every makeup trend, they always come around,” beauty influencer Victoria Lyn says in a TikTok video. “You’re going to see a ton of this ‘Taylor Momsen,’ ‘Sky Ferreira’ kind of look this fall.” Lyn proceeds to define the style as “grungy, indie, sleaze.” In the video, Lyn recreates this look herself. She explains that the tumblr makeup aesthetic has a big focus on the eyes, so she begins by keeping her foundation simple, adding tint and warmth through contour. Additionally, she recommends skipping out on the blush and highlight. For an extra natural touch, she adds faux freckles.
After fluffing up her eyebrows, she begins by adding a black cream eyeshadow onto her eyelids in her desired shape of a winged look. “I like to add black shadow in layers. So I’ll apply one layer and I’ll add more as I go to really build that black,” Lyn says in the video as she blends it in. “And yes, be messy with it.” In this look, she chose to layer a metallic silver eyeshadow over the black taking inspiration from one of Taylor Momsen’s many looks. She finishes the look with a natural tone matte lipstick, and other parts of the style like layered jewelry, rings, messy hair, and a leather jacket.
