Now, I’m not one to jump on bandwagons, but while watching Grav3yard Girl’s recent video in the tag How I Did my Makeup In Highschool it really got me thinking about the makeup I wore in highschool, and how absolutely terrible it was!
Step two: A tinted sunscreen. And when I say tinted sunscreen/moisturiser duo, I mean that it gave me a white cast to my face! Of course don’t blend it anywhere, especially not down my neck, on my ears, or ever on my eyes.
Step three: Manic Panic’s Anemic powder foundation applied heavily with the sponge applicator it comes with (they still make it!) using the “pancake” method. I would buy this cheap on EBay using the money I got from doing online surveys!
Step Four: Use a blue/black eyeliner to line your eyes. And then use it to cover your entire lid! This was what I used as a base for my eyeshadow (black, of course), and don’t you dare blend it! It’s going to smear anyway.
Step Five: Cake as much sparkly black eyeshadow on top of the eyeliner. My favourite was Maybelline’s trio that came with a lot of blue shades. When I was first starting at makeup, I never had the idea or maybe I thought it was too expensive to find a good quality matte black shadow. Instead it was always a sparkly black. Oh, and again, don’t you dare blend it out!
And bam! There you have it. No mascara, no lipstick (too fussy), and especially no blush – it’d take away from that vampiric palor, am I right?
Let me know all about your high school makeup routine – especially in your early Goth days – and the mistakes you made!
