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.
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.
I applied Liberatus from lid to brow bone with a large fluffy brush.
I then put Lazarus into the crease and blended upward as a transition.
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.
On the same brush, I took Shax and started at the outer corner and blended inward and pulled the shadow upward on the outer V for a lifted look. I went over it back and forth with a blending brush to make sure it was smooth and added more Shax as needed.
I tight lined and lined the upper lash line pulling into a wing with the Urban Decay 24 Hour Velvet Eyeliner. Then I set the liner and softened it with Shax. I also cleaned up the fallout and blended the lower lash line.
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.
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.
