Makeup: Gothic Blues

Lately I’ve been wanting to play on the more gothic/pastel goth side of makeup.  I like to try and figure out what kind of looks I can pull off because I’ve got kind of a full baby face, so I feel like when it comes to edgier looks I need to push the envelope while understanding that there is stuff my face just can’t do, lol.  There will be a lot more experimentation coming, and I’m pretty pumped about it.

The other day, I decided to play with more blues, because as much as I like the color I don’t wear a lot of it, makeup-wise. I also got a new black lip color that I wanted to play with, and this was the result:

Blue Makeup

I used my ever-wonderful Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette to play with mah brows, and those are the colors Mean, Hatter, and Blindsided, in that order.  I love doing colored brows, it’s rather sassy. ❤

When I do the wilder looks I ask myself “how extra do I feel like being today?” XD  The answer this time was we’ll keep it to the brows and the lips, because I don’t know what this is gonna look like when I’m done.  So I used a couple of brown shades from my Too Faced Chocolate bar on my eyes for a wee bit o’ shade.  I took Iced from the Full Spectrum and planted that in my inner corners.  The color on my lips is a Nyx Liquid Lip Suede in the color Alien.

Something else I’d been wanting to try, was layering an eyeshadow over a lip color.  Since I was doing blue, I took one of my Colourpop Super Shock pigments in the color Coconut and dabbed that over it.  I really wanted it to be a gradient color between the black and blue but somehow the blue overtook the whole thing, but it still looked pretty, so I went with it. 🙂  I was all kinds of tickled over the pretty, and I’m going to be trying this out with other color combos in the future.  The lashes I used were more of my lovely eBay roulette lashes, and the wig is an eBay roulette as well that I had wanted to use a while back for my Onimusha Soul Morrigan cosplay (that I still need to finish *whistles*), but once I got it the colors were NOT gonna work with what I had in mind so not it’s just whatever.  It worked nicely for this once I had a concept envisioned.

I loved this look both ways, but the blue lips definitely popped more.  Thanks for reading, see ya soon! ❤

  1. This look is so perfect on you! I also have quite a baby face and black cat eye flicks and red lips just don’t work for me. I’ve tried purple lipstick before but it made my olive skin look sallow. I love the colour blue but I think it’s definitely more suited to your skin tone xx
