The Gothic Eye: What you need to Know about Goth Eye Makeup
We will have to agree on this one thing, Goth eye makeup is a major part when pulling off the gothic style. Eye makeup reveals the artistic genius in applying eyeliners and mascara to achieve the cat eye, new wave, full rimmed eyes, and the classic look. All the Goth eye makeup have to be applied in just the right amount. This is where many of us go wrong. We use too much makeup thinking that it is what defines the look. The Goth style is a cool look and each one of us should know how to achieve it without overdoing it.
First of all, you have to pay attention to your brows. Before applying anything, shape your brows nicely. Pluck the out of line brows to pave way for the dark brow pencil. Once your brows have the shape, go crazy! Fill them with black brow color pencil or color of choice.

As seen in most Goth looks, the upper and lower lids have to be lined precisely. While doing this, be careful not to allow the liquid liner into the eyes especially while doing the lower lids. Liquid liner gives the best results and once the lines are drawn, you can go ahead and apply dark mascara coat once or twice.
Make the eyes pop
Goth eye makeup, particularly the dark one, works well when the eyes are popped out. The trick is to expose the dark eye shadow to make it stand out. It is easy to get this effect. Use a stark white pencil to line the lower eyelid and to the eye’s inner corner, use a silvery-white shade. This trick exposes the shadow tremendously.
Try different color shades
Of course, the first thing to do when applying Goth eye makeup is to use the black shade. Black is the Goth color but other shades also help achieve the Goth look. It might be red, indigo or burgundy. Apply the shade severally and make sure it blends.
