My everyday, plain and very dark makeup. (seriously, I would wear my makeup to school)
Plain, simple and darkly exquisite. Unfortunately, the wing didn't come out that dark on the photos, but I layer the black eyeshadow on in masses! It's really the only wayt to get a harsh effect

  • How to create an animal print eye makeup look. My Gothic Makeup - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather aaaaaall your brushes and makeup. And some cotton wool...you'll see why later. The foundation should be see-through or one shade lighter than your skintone.

    Step 2

    Powder under your eye (right under it) and up towards your hairline. This will stop the black and silver from falling onto your gorgeous pale skin.Prime only te eyelids, wait for it to settle and apply the silvery white shadow all over your lid, crease and right under your eyebrow.

    Step 3

    Take the black pencil and draw a thick line on the outer lid and on your waterline (inner lid). Dip a stiff brush into the black shadow and draw the brush along the black pencil line. This takes away some of the harshness of the line and creates a more sultry look.

    Step 4

    Draw a line with the black shadow along your lid: it should be thin at the inner corner, slightly arched at the eyebrow and swept out in awing at the end of your eyebrow. Kinda like a cat's eye, slanted and very dark. Use thick layers of the black shadow to colour in your lid inside of this line. Apply your black liquid eyeliner and black mascara. Dust off the baby powder with a brush and use the cotton wool to clean up any extra powder or stray black shadow.

    Step 5

    Prime the rest of your face, wait for it to sink in and apply your foundation in a thin layer. Powder over the foundation with white or baby powder and put your favourite lip colour on and you're all set.

I know this was a while ago, but - what do find is the best black eyeliner pencil or crayon to use on the inner rim of the eye? Ive never been able to find something that lasts, or at least that doesn't end up gathering in the inner corner of my eye (you know, where those little creepy-crawlies poop while we're sleeping?).
