How to prepare the skin around the eyes for the look:
- Start by cleaning the skin of your face taking special care to get rid of all oil and dirt around the eyes.
- Apply a transparent or colorless eye primer from the collection of 8 Color Eyeshadow Base Primer by DE’LANCI to smooth out the skin.
- Top it up using a concealer that will hide all dark spots or circles making the skin look bright and clean.
- Dab on some translucent powder to give this base of your eye makeup staying power and mattify it.
2. Highlight the brow bones
Coming to the next step of the Gothic eye makeup tutorial, we now move on to brighten the area on the top of the eyes. When you highlight the brow bones, it will help make the look bigger and highlight it on the face too. All of this will go a long way in making your eye makeup bright and prominent!!!
How to highlight the brow bones:
- Take a small eyeshadow brush to take the highlighter from the palette and apply it aptly over the brow bone area.
- Take the bright golden highlighter color from the 6 Colors Diamond Highlighter Palette with the brush.
- Apply it on the brow bones and blend it evenly such that the areas above the eyelids glow with its light highlighting shade.
3. Shade the eyelids dark
In this step of our Gothic eye makeup tutorial, we start applying the dark eyeshadow colors on the eyelids for the actual effect! It’s the deft application of the colors as you shade the eyelids dark and the blend that will bring out the stunning look!!!
How to shade the eyelids dark:
- Take your small-headed eyeshadow brush to take the colors from Delanci Rock All Matte Eyeshadow Palette.
- Take the Brown shade from the palette and apply it all over the eyelids going just beyond the cut crease.
- Next, take the Coal shade and apply it on the eyelids, but, this time, limit the color to the cut crease only.
- Use the brush to blend the colors well into a seamless flow of the dark black color all over the eyelids.
4. Line the lower lash line thick
The next step of our Gothic eye makeup tutorial involves embellishing the dark makeup look of the eyes! We will do this as we line the lower lash thick and give it a dark makeover to blend in with the color of the upper eyelids! For the meek-hearted, we have Easy Natural Eye Makeup Looks!!!
How to line the lower lash line thick:
- You have the option of using black kohl or the black eyeshadow color that you’ve used to shade the eyelids.
- We suggest that you use a thin brush and the Coal shade from the eyeshadow palette for better and lasting results.
- Line the lower lash line of your eyes with the Coal eyeshadow color from the inner corners to the outer edge.
- Top it up with another layer and make it thick such that it looks homogenous with the dark eyelid colors.
5. Draw out a wing (optional)
This step of the Gothic eye makeup tutorial is optional. You can work it out to bring more prominence to your eyes! It is always good to draw out a wing with your eyeliner or eyeshadow colors if you have small eyes! Also, read through the Gorgeous Matte Eyeshadow Looks!!!
How to draw out a wing:
- Take the thin angled brush from the DE’LANCI Blending Makeup Brush Set and take the same dark black Coal color from the eyeshadow palette.
- Now, draw out a small wing from the outer corner of the eyes angling it upwards towards your brow.
- Next, make the wing thick and blend it with your upper lids by merging it upper end where the upper end of the eyeshadow ends.
6. Finish with mascara and brow definition
Now, we come to the final stage of our pretty gothic makeup tutorial as we finish with mascara and brow definition! As with any other eye makeup look, the final touches are always those of applying mascara and sharpening the brows!!!
How to finish with mascara and brow definition:
- Brush your brows and fill them in using the dark brown color from the palette with a brow brush.
- Using brown eyeshadow color to fill them will give the brows a more natural look rather than using the black color.
- Once you’re done, coat the eyelashes using your volumizing mascara on both the upper and lower lashes.
- Add a little translucent powder to the lashes and reapply the mascara for prominently thick-looking lashes that add depth to the eyes.
