Emo Makeup Tips for Girls 2011
Emo makeup for girls and guys is very different. Guys usually stick to a little bit of eyeliner and no more. Girls however, go all out. So what exactly do emo girls wear?
First of all, foundation is usually worn, unless you have a baby doll complexion. If not, most emo girls try to simulate one. Make sure to blend it all the way down your neck. Cover-up or concealer can also be used, but this depends mainly on how flawed your skin is. Honestly, if you have horrible acne and scars everywhere, concealer probably won’t do much for you. It’s best to let your skin breathe instead.
Next, eye makeup. Eye makeup is the most essential thing when it comes to any makeup, but especially emo makeup. Emo makeup can be dark and dramatic or it can be neon and bright and just way out there. It is up to the girl’s personal preference. The main thing to remember is that this makeup doesn’t have to be bright all the time.
A tip for really fair skinned girls: Don’t wear black eyeshadow alone. It makes you look sick. Instead, take a color you really like that is sparkly or iridescent and layer it on top just enough to change the color. Just that little layer is enough to add color to your face.
Lastly, add a little bit of color to your lips. Nude lips are nice, but if you are already using a paler foundation than your skin you will end up looking washed out.
