Tutorial: Gothic Elegance

I haven't done a gothic and alternative makeup look in a while, and I wanted to come up with something dramatic that would fit the bill, but still keep it looking feminine and glamorous. I thought this version of a gothic look is not only pretty darn wearable, it's also quite fashion forward! I would definitely rock this on a night out, maybe to a trendy club or to a rock concert.

The blue colours give it that alternative, less-than-mainstream look, but the soft touches on the eye keep things in focus and don't make you look like you just rose from the dead. ;)

Here's the tutorial how I created this look, which you can also view on Youtube here.

Face & Cheeks
Smashbox 15 Hour Wear foundation , Estee Lauder Shimmering Powder in Light Snow (LE), Illamasqua Chased blush

NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, Sleek MakeUP Ultra Matte Version 2 eyeshadow palette, MAC Blacktrack Fluidline gel eyeliner, Kryolan mascara, Elite Lashes Nr. 19 (from CVS), Revlon Precision lash adhesive

Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner in Indigo Ink, Illamasqua Disciple lipstick, Sleek MakeUP Pout Paint in Peek-A-Bloo

China Glaze Tinseltown
