Gothic makeup Looks

Festive Look Book: Gothic Inspired Makeup Looks, and some shedding of Fears…

Hi lovely readers,

Hope you’re still reeling in the festive fever. I think I’m too, because just as much I have nothing to do with Halloween, I just had to snatch the opportunity to do this post. I prefer going easy on makeup most times, but in today’s post I have looks that we all should try, at least once in a while! It took me quite some courage to step out of my comfort zone, and create some dark looks with a dose of Gothic. But again, a few of them are subtler versions that you can categorize under fall makeup as well. For a look or two, I put my creative hat on and let Pinterest inspire me. 🙂

I won’t be elaborating a lot on the base, as there’s a lot to talk about the color cosmetics. The base makeup has the Colorbar Perfect Match Primer, L’Oreal True Match Concealer, Maybelline Fit Me foundation and The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion foundation. Also for all the looks I kept my brows really stark and used the darkest shade from the MUA Brow Kit. It is a dark brown that works pretty well for me.

That was quite an innovative step on Lakme’s part and I’m very impressed. 🙂 I picked up the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip and Cheek Color in the shades Plum Feather, Burgundy Lush and Coffee Lite.
