Make Up Look: Goth Doll

After doing a wee poll on my Twitter, I took the leap and decided to talk a bit about beauty! I’ve never been overly confident with it, but I’ve always loved experimenting with make up so I’ve decided to start a series to talk about how I play around with different cosmetics. First up, a gothic doll look.

My skin is SO sensitive to the sun so I’m pale pretty much 12 months of the year but I love to get playful with it! Gothic looks with cute twists are my favourite and I really enjoyed combining ebony lips with hints of gold and pink. Here’s how I got the look!

The process with my face was kept super simple- I just stuck to my daily routine. Dots of my favourite concealer in ‘ivory’ blended and topped with a layer of Bourjois Healthy Balance powder (you can check it out below). It’s super light and non-cakey and the fruity scent is AH-MAZING! Next I filled in my brows with a small angled brush and NYX’s eyebrow pomade in ‘chocolate’. It’s not too much about bringing the drama at this stage- my eyebrows are so small anyway that I rarely make them the focal point! Who knows though… I may try in the future.

Leaving the lids naked, I added a small coating of mascara to my top lashes for a touch of volume. For a doll-like twist, I cut one of my falsies into 10 equal parts and stuck them along my water line.

Lips come next, and as always, I used my trusty Lime Crime Velvetines. ‘Black Velvet’ goes on first and I traced slightly over my lips so I could make a more defined cupid’s bow. Once that dried, I went in with my liquid gold lipstick (Zenon) on my bottom lip, creating a chunky line.

To finish, I played around with some wash-in, wash-out coloured hairspray. I have a few different varieties but my favourite has to be the pink Trolls variety that’s just £3 in Primark. Going strong on the roots to bring out the hot pink, I then brought the spray can further away from my hair as I moved towards my ends for a gradient look.
