Hi, I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert. And today, I'm going to show you how to apply eye makeup that looks goth. First of all, goth is very dark. So, we're going to start out with a charcoal colored eyeshadow. And, basically, it's going to be a little dramatic. So, you prepare yourself for that. Everything's going to be extra dark, extra accented. So, I'm going to start by applying the carbon colored MAC eyeshadow along the eyelid. You want to start at the inner corner, and work your way all the way to the end of the eye. Now, while you're applying these darker colors, you've got to be extra careful to blend them, because they tend to not blend easily, since they are so dark. So, just be patient, and blend it as best you can. Next color is going to be a very dark gray I'm going to add in the center of the eye. Going to go with this bluish gray color, and you're going to want to blend it well with the black. It's all going to be very dark, very dramatic. Make sure you go from inner eye all the way to the end. Can never put on too much dark shadow with the gothic look. The darker, the better. And, we're going to top it off with this dark brown. This will help open the eye, make it look a little more natural, since we've got so much going on. Make sure you blend each color well, so it looks like it all flows together. Okay, now we're going to move on to the eyeliner. I've got a charcoal black MAC eyeliner here I'm going to use, same one we applied to the bottom, except now, we're going to do a thicker coat, and just line the eye, and extend it out about a quarter inch past the eye. Don't worry about the small flakes falling under the eye, we're going to take care of that once we're complete with this look, because it does happen. Remember, take it out an extra quarter of an inch there. Add a little more dramatic look. Okay, look up for me, please. And, we're going to go ahead and do the bottom as well. Once again, you can't do too much black with the goth look. The more, the better almost. Very pretty. And, the other eye. And, that is how to apply goth eye makeup. I'm Danielle Cavalear, professional makeup expert.
