How To Do Gothic Eye Makeup?

Following is the step by step process included in Gothic eye makeup.

Step 1: Apply Concealer, Foundation and Compact

On clean eye lids, apply concealer and foundation. Follow it up with a compact for a flawless texture. Before starting any makeup on any part of the body, it’s very important that your skin is free from oil, dirt or grime. If your pores have oil or sebum locked in them and you are doing makeup over it, neither will your makeup sit and stay on your skin properly nor will your skin be able to breathe. Make sure your face is cleansed and dry from any hint of oil and dirt.

Step 2: Apply Silver Highlighter

This is a 3 tier makeup look. Easy and simple gothic look. Take your silver highlighter and start using it on to the brow bones. Next, use the same high lighter at the eye nose junction. Here follow light to dark colors tier.

Step 3: Apply The Burnt Shimmer Grey

Apply the burnt shimmer grey on to the crease just below the brow bones next. Blend well.

Step 4: Apply Black Matte Eyeshadow

Now take the black matte eye shadow and use it on to whole of the lid. Make sure you do not form a wing. Gothic looks with a shadow wing are not a choice of thing you would generally find.

Step 5: Apply Black Pencil Liner

Use a black pencil liner or kajal on to the lower rim. Make sure the lower rim lining is quite broad. This is a special gothic touch.

Step 6:

A tailed upper lining can be cool or just a broad lining keeping to the rim area.
