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:
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! ❤
