Yesterday was Friday the 13th, so I wondered what I should wear. After thinking about it for about 3 seconds, I decided that Friday the 13th called for black and nothing else. I also decided to go for dark eyes and naked lips again.
Here’s yesterday’s outfit:
Here’s my makeup. I wanted to try a smoldering, shadowy look to go with my crescent moon. The crescent moon was made from a stencil, that was part of my EyeCons kit:
I highly recommend the EyeCons kit to add a bit of flair to your everyday makeup. These are perfect for when I want something on my forehead, but not anything “blingy”. And Jessica Martinez, Ms. EyeCons herself, is a belly dancer so these are perfect for dance (she also makes a “sweat-proof” kit)! You even get to choose your colors and your stencils. I think it’s a great buy.
This was somewhat of a last-minute makeup look that I did yesterday. I wanted to go for a 1920’s face, so I experimented with covering my eyebrows (see video below, by Hollywood Noir Makeup). It was an absolute failure. I admit that I didn’t have all of the right makeup to cover my brows, so I will give it another try, soon.
Since the covered eyebrows experiment failed, I washed my face and went with a Plan B. I decided to just drop the ’20s look and go trad goth. I added a red streak to the corners of my eyes, using blush:
Here’s what I wore, yesterday. It’s basically my usual: black, asymmetrical, and comfortable:
Be sure to check out the tutorial by Hollywood Noir Makeup, below my signature. I utterly failed, but I’m going to get the right makeup and try it again.
Hello, lovelies! Today’s the last day of January, but we still have February to go, so the crappy weather won’t be ending any time soon. The good news though, is that we only have 48 more days until Spring!
I decided to go back to my “gothic roots” yesterday and wear something more “traditional”. I can’t do the deathhawk, but I think my red, messy afro will suffice:
Here’s my makeup from yesterday. Dark and gothic. I’m still learning how to do my eyebrows by tweezing and applying eyebrow pencil and brown eyeshadow. I was always a bit hesitant on making my brows too dark, but I actually like them really dark. Especially when I wear dark eye makeup:
I have a couple of experiments coming up, concerning my eyebrows. And also, February should be a great month for style – IF the weather cooperates. If not, then I’ll just have to work around the frigid weather. Stay tuned.
Woo hoo! The high temperature today will be 82° F (27° C) and there’s no humidity. Since the weather today is unseasonably spring-like, I took the opportunity to dress more trad goth. Here’s what I’m wearing today. Just a simple black dress and simple black leggings, paired with winklepickers:
Here’s what my face looks like today. Again, my usual summer makeup – eyeliner and face bling:
I wanted to try something new with my face. I saw this picture on one of my favorite Tumblrs, The Witch and the Wardrobe (if you click on the picture link, you’ll see it’s from a different Tumblr). Unfortunately, I couldn’t add the photo to my post. Crazy daggone artists and their copyrights! Oh well, no biggie. You can click the link or just look at the one and only, whom I’m sure the photo was inspired from:
In all of my years as a goth, I have never worn my eye makeup like Siouxsie Sioux. I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. Plus, it seemed like it would take a long time to do.
But I had some extra time yesterday morning, so I decided to give it a try. Besides, if I’m going to try my hand at makeup artistry, I need to experiment with different styles. So, here’s how it turned out:
I think I did a pretty good job. One thing I would change is my eyebrows. I think I could have shaded them in a bit more, making them blend in more with the black eyeshadow. I could also use a bit more black eyeshadow along the crease of my eyelids.
Here’s what I wore. Just jeans, boots, and a lace shirt. Not spectacular, but definitely old school:
So, I would say that my Siouxsie eyes went pretty well. I will definitely do this again and probably switch it up a bit in the near future.
Here’s my basic outfit for today. I don’t know if it’s my age or what, but since I’m working to simplify my life, my wardrobe’s getting progressively more basic. I have no issues with this. Using the 80/20 Rule (the Pareto Principle), most people wear 20% of their clothing 80% of the time. I think this includes me. Besides, one of the things I like about the gothic lifestyle is that you can keep it simple or dress it up to your heart’s content.
Here’s my face for today. I’m a big fan of the cut crease to accentuate my eyes. I’ve never seen a cat-eye style not work for anyone’s face. It’s like the little black dress for your eyes:
