Gothic Make Up - step-by-step instructions

Gothic Makeup - The foundation.

For Gothic makeup, it is important to choose two shades lighter than your skin tone for the primer; This applies to both Gothic and Gothic makeup artists. The face should be ashen and almost white. The best way to apply liquid makeup is to use a makeup sponge.

There is also white pressed powder in a gothic makeup store that you can also apply over primer to create an even brighter look. Of course, you can also use theatrical paints for the primer.


Gothic Makeup - Eye Instructions

With gothic eye makeup, the eyes should be framed as black as possible. It is best to start with a black eye shadow, which you apply in a thick layer above and below the eye. Of course, you can also choose a purple or red shade for the eye shadow.

The Cajal pen is used next. This is applied under the eye. A gothic makeup tip for those who have never used eyeliner is to work with an eyeliner pencil for the first time. If you already have a little more practice with eyeliner, it is best to use black liquid eyeliner, as it merely holds better.

Mascara is the last step in eye makeup. An eyelash curler can be particularly useful here to bend the lashes before applying black mascara. For an even more intense look, false lashes are often glued on, and contact lenses are used.


The lips

For everyday gothic makeup, purple or black lips are usually worn. But dark red lips are also suitable for Gothic makeup. You can use a small brush to apply lipstick or simply apply it directly.
