How to Apply Emo Makeup

Posted by Zuhaib Shaikh - -

The essence of the emo looks is relatively nature. In most cases, the most distinguishing factor is the eyes. You can achieve the natural look by only concentrating your makeup efforts on your eyes, or you can still get a comparatively natural look by doing the whole makeup. Unlike other makeup styles, emo makeup is quite dramatic and the focus is on the eyes.

If your skin is fairly smooth and acne free, you’ll probably want to leave out using foundation completely. Otherwise, you should start with a skin tone concealer on the more blotchy spots of your face. When you have finished applying concealer then it’s time for the foundation. To start apply foundation, you will need a sponge. ut a small amount of liquid foundation onto your sponge. Remember that, oftentimes, less is more. Now start in the center of your face and apply the foundation, working from the center of your face towards the sides rather than up and down.

Eye Shadow
Most emos opt for black or smoky eye shadows to give the eye make up a more dramatic effect and to help the color of the eyes stand out more. Applying eye shadow should be the first step in the eye makeup process. Start by dusting your eyelids with a small amount of loose powder. This will keep the eye shadow from causing that horrid eye makeup clumping that tends to happen at the crease of the eye lid. It will also help your eye shadow to stay on all day long instead of swearing it off.

Eye Liner
All emos who do not go for the completely natural look wear fairly dramatic eye makeup. Using pencil eye liner will not give your eyes as much of a stand out dramatic affect as liquid eye liners do. Most emos wear black eye liner only, but you can experiment with different colors as you like. Use eye liner after you’ve applied your eye shadow and before you’ve applied your mascara.

There are tons of different types of mascara to choose from. For the purpose of emo makeup, it’s recommended that you choose a brand that is designed for lengthening. Most emos wear black mascara. Applying mascara is the last step in the eye makeup process. 

Lip Gloss
Most emos I know don’t wear lip stick. Those that do choose to go with a natural tone. Many, however, do wear lip gloss. It makes the lips shine all pretty like, keeps them hydrated, and usually either smells and/or tastes fruity. The process of applying lip gloss is fairly simple and straight forward. For liquid lip gloss, take the applicator stick and rub the gloss on your lips, evenly distributing it. For roll-on lip gloss, roll the roller across your lips, starting with your bottom lip and then the top lip. For tube lip gloss, put a small amount on your finger and rub it on your lips.

Most emos don’t use blush at all, but if you are going to use it, choose a light shade that matches the color of your cheeks after you have finished exercising. This is your natural blushing color. If you have dry skin, you may want to use a cream blush as it will help to keep your face hydrated. If you have oily skin, then you’re skin is better suited for a type of powder blush. You will want to have finished applying your concealer, foundation, and eye makeup before you begin applying blush.
