25 Days of Christmas – Day 2 – Gothic Look

 photo 20151202_184925_zpswxngrsza.jpg

Day 2 of 25 Days of Christmas is a Gothic look. Odd choice for a Christmas countdown but it suits me fine.I decided to do my classic goth look I do on a fairly regular basis. I call it Southern Gothic. I was actually planning to do this look for a tutorial in October but didn’t have time.

Anyway, this is a classic Gothic look inspired by the unique Gothic vibe of Louisiana. I pulled inspiration from Anne Rice, the early 90’s and a bit of American Horror Story Coven. They nailed Southern Gothic with the Coven season. The Goth style here has always been a bit more boho and witchy, there’s something special about it. This is a look I’ve done for years and years with various products.

Okay, let’s get to it.

Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye Contour Palette

The palette I chose for the eyes is the Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye Contour Palette. The center quad is perfect. Cool, tone browns and a true black.

As usual, I began with a primed eye and brows done.

With Saleos I craved out the crease and created depth and blended the shade onto the lid and across using a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush.

I finished the eyes off with a few coats of mascara.

No Goth Look is complete without a deep bold lip. I chose a classic dark wine shade by Stila.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

For foundation, I used my Fit Me in the lightest shade because it’s the palest foundation I have and I wanted a luminous, porcelain finish to the skin.

I set my face wit the NYX Radiant Finishing Powder because it color corrects and helps remove redness and adds a glow.

I contoured using the NYX Blush in Taupe because it’s very cool toned.

Lastly, I highlighted with this Pacifica eyeshadow which is very pale with a subtle blue shift. It’s a gorgeous highlight for porcelain skin. I wanted a very strong shine because I wanted that luminosity like Anne Rice’s Vampires.
