This look was inspired by an editorial fashion spread I spotted in a magazine, where the model was wearing very edgy, gothic, dark makeup. Since some of the upcoming fall collections seem to be focusing on black makeup, for example MAC's Style Black collection, I felt this look would be fitting for those people who love dark, gothic looks. This look is obviously not an everyday, natural, wearable look - but it is fun to do, especially for those people brave enough to sport makeup like this out and about, be it a dark smokey club or even a gothic rock concert. There are many different ways to do gothic makeup - this one is more high fashion inspired.
In the video, the colors on the eyes are hard to see. It is not all black - the edges are dark purple and the lids are burgundy. It comes across more color accurate on these pictures. (I really need to get some better lighting for filming at night *sigh*)
