It's time for the weekly makeup tag again, and this week's theme is Goth! Now, I was really excited by this challenge but also really intimidated by it. It's a really tough look to pull off with darker skin!
I did some research and learnt that Goth doesn't mean super pale skin, it just means a paler version of what you already have, so I used a pressed powder heavily over my skin, and then just played up my eyes and lips. I also skipped bronzer and blush for obvious reasons.
I had planned to wear black on my lips but the 'research' I did said not to go too dark on both eyes and lips, so I compromised by using a deep plum on the lips with an outline of black eyeliner. Products used are at the bottom of the post. I also saw some goth images with pretty patterns drawn on so couldn't resist trying that too! Looking forward to hearing what you think of my Goth effort.
And this is where I decided to get into drawing some pretty lines all over. :P
My eyes look just a wee bit evil in the photo below, I think...I love it!

Gosh, writing this made me realise just how far behind I am in my product reviews! I'm so sorry!
I hope you enjoyed this tag. I'm not really sure I did this look justice, I'm thinking it looks a bit more vampy than Goth? Perhaps I ought to have gone with black lipstick after all! What do you think?
