FOTD - Rock chick make-up

I'm afraid there's no OOTD this week as I have a stinking cold so for the last few days I've been lounging about in my pyjamas feeling sorry for myself.

I do, however, have a FOTD.

As somebody who has been listening to rock music since about 1994, I feel suitably qualified to call this a rock chick look. For me, the traditional rock chick make-up (mostly worn by models who like rock stars rather than rock music) isn't representative of the gorgeous ladies I see at gigs and the like. Rock is about drama, and a smudge of black eye liner with a nude lip gets an "E" for effort, in my opinion.

This is the kind of look I would wear to a gig.I also tried to get out of my comfort zone a bit by using green on my eyes but you can't really pick this up in the photo. Before anybody says it, I know that cardigans aren't very rock n roll, but even rock chicks need a day off, right?

The headband is from Primark and cost £2.50.
