Your Make Up Wipes will hate you for this!
Been a while since my Goth days.. Gotta admit, recreating this look did make me feel nostalgic. So I had to do a bit of research into this to remind me.. This look is loosely based on Devin Sola from the band Motionless in White. I tend to be more a fan of the slapdash and handsome side of goth rather than pretty and neat...

    A technique I recommend for a gothic eye look is to use a red lip pencil.. Because it helps to give a grunge –esque feel to it. I used GASH LIP PENCIL BY URBAN DECAY. Apply this all over the lid and on the bottom lash line

    For contour – because it’s quite an OTT contour I think there’s nothing wrong with adding a touch of colour. I decided to go with a blue to contrast with the warm red in my eyes. I used BLUE VELVET SHADOWCREME BY ESTEE LAUDER

I didn't even have to read the description to know the look was based on Devin Sola. He's my favorite member of Motionless in White.
