Goth Makeup Is Back For Winter
Goth Makeup Is Back For Winter Here’s How to Make It Look Modern :
Goth is back, and our The Cure-loving selves couldn’t be more excited.
As with all style resurgences, the goth makeup looks we know and love have gotten a bit of an overhaul since we last saw them (in high school): they’re more modern,
which is exactly what makes them a wearable trend and not just a throwback.
Regardless of whether or not you subscribed to the subculture back in the day,
the Fall 2015 runways did a great job of conveying the fact that goth is everywhere this season.
So dig out the black lipstick and arm yourselves accordingly with these
easy tips for getting the look right. Keep it balanced.
Consider other moody shades for eyes.
Dark Gary and black eye makeup is the gold standard for creating the goth-inspired look, but the new goth is all about making it wearable so that you look just the right amount of troubled—not like you don’t know what you’re doing. Using purples, blues, and even soft browns can soften up the look and is infinitely more flattering, so the “all black everything” rule is not hard and fast.
First, try lining your eyes with a dark-coloured liner pencil—Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Mainline ($20)(1330 INR) is a deep teal that makes for a brilliant way to wear dark eye makeup without going whole-hog blackout—before sweeping on a slightly lighter shadow in the same colour family. It’ll give you that dusky smoky eye effect.
Go easy on the foundation.
