A Gothic Fantasy Makeover

January for me was all about creating fast, wearable makeup looks as part of my Express Makeup series. So when February came around, all I wanted to do was let me freak flag fly.

I wanted to create a look that was a little bit gothic, but still pretty.

I’ve always loved makeup looks that take something traditionally unflattering (like red, bruised looking eyes) and turn them into something unexpectedly flattering. I *tried* to achieve that here, but you’ll have to let me know, did I succeed?
