Todays inspiration came from watching Youtuber Kayleigh Noelle. Goth make up style is seriously misunderstood. It has evolved so much since the 80’s. Its not simply black smudged on the eye and lips on a pale face. It has become an art form. A truly beautiful art form using pigmented reds and blues. Today I did an understated look due to being an amateur with make up. Today I also started using L’oreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal serum and eye renewal after cleansing with Clinique mild liquid facial soap. Hoping to bring back some life to my skin.
Before applying my foundation and concealer I wanted to work on my eyes. It makes correcting eyeliner easier. Using the Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencil in perversion I covered each lid completely. Then using the Lorac propallete shade I applied espresso to the crease line buffing it into the black liner. Then using the black shadow I went over the black liner, making sure to only keep it on the lids.
Using the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow I shaped and filled in my brows. Then it was time to apply the Nars foundation. While at Walgreens I picked up Maybelline’s ILLUMINATEUR corrector stick. After applying the foundation I applied the corrector bellow my eyes and along the brow bone. To give my brows a little more depth I lightly brushed on the Urban Decay liner. To define my lower eye line I used the espresso shade with the tapered end of the Kat Von D eye contour brush. On my water line I used Smashbox Always On gel liner in fishnet give a slight flick of a wing.
To contour I brought out the City Color contour pallete. I applied the bronzer to my cheek hollow and on my fore head along the temples. Then blending in the contour shade only on my cheeks. In order to add a little more light to the top of my cheeks I applied a little more Maybelline correcteur and blend that in to my foundation. I don’t have black lipstick so I used the Urban Decay 24/7 liner to my lips as liner and fill in. To add dimension I applied some MAC brave red(my new favorite) to only give a tint not completely cover over the black. In the winter I don’t like to use too much setting powder. My skin is already dry enough. But I wanted to add a little lightness as Kayleigh did in her video so I used a touch of Makeup Forever HD powder to complete the look.
Goth make up is so much fun. No matter your eye color this look makes your eye color pop! The black lipstick I’m on the fence about. But I could certainly get use to it with another color on top. Only using black makes it a little flat. Give Goth another look when you want drama. There are so many colors now to add to the black. For a beginners tutorial check out Kayleigh’s video. Ill add it below. I will see you tomorrow with a little less drama!
But first I Goth (corny I know) a show you something:
