Before you do emo makeup, you need to decide on its purpose. Like any other, emo makeup is divided into day and evening. The first involves the use of fairly bright shadows, for example, gold, pink, blue, silver, purple or purple.
In the evening, emo makeup for girls may look even more daring - large glitters are applied to the eyelid area, very voluminous false eyelashes are used. In addition, special attention is paid to the application of powder and blush, which make the shape of the face more expressive and emphasize the texture.
Rules for applying emo makeup
The basic rule that should be taken into account when doing emo makeup: you need to do everything possible to give the skin a perfectly smooth look and natural tone. To disguise flaws, you should use the tonal and compact powder, as well as the corrector. Further, eyes should be emphasized. Makeup for emo among others stands out precisely brightly outlined eye area. Eyes are painted gradually, starting with a soft pencil of dark gray or black color. It is worth noting that at first the inner corners of the eyes are highlighted with light movements, and then the contour on the lower eyelids is created with a medium-fat line. Arrows are created by intersecting the contours of the upper and lower eyelids.
Without the use of shades of saturated colors, it is rather difficult to call emo makeup complete. The image will play only if the eyelids are tinted in thick asphalt, purple, gray or other colors. It is important to note that regardless of the chosen color of the shadows, make-up for emo involves their careful blending. This simple technique will visually enlarge the eyes, especially if combined with the addition of light strokes. In addition, around the dark contour, you must create a halo of brighter shadows. Then eyelashes are colored, preferably with black mascara, which increases the length and volume.
Because emo makeup focuses on the eyes, lips do not need to be distinguished in any particular way. A normal lip gloss or lipstick of neutral tone will be quite enough. If there is a desire to make the skin a little paler than a natural shade, you can apply a thin layer of light, crumbly powder.
Features of the image
The make-up of an emo girl will not allow you to completely create an image, if you do not complement it with an appropriate outfit, manicure and hairdo. Nails in this case is given not the last value. Emo makeup goes well with black painted nails, as well as variations on French manicure, such as black with pink or blue. However, without the presence of a black manicure would not be so successful.
It is very important to pay attention to the correct choice of lipstick. Emo makeup does not allow bright shades to color the lips. Red and cherry colors, as well as fuchsia, are not strongly recommended. They can completely ruin the emo girl's makeup and make the image absurd.
Also it is worthwhile to separately talk about skin leveling. Emo style make-up is absolutely incompatible with such derma problems as redness, acne, acne and bumps. If any of these ailments is present, it must be carefully masked with a tonal tool, it is desirable that it also has a healing effect. It should also be remembered that low-quality cosmetics can only worsen the situation.

Such colors as pink, blue and violet became firmly in the emo-fashion, which means that the whole emo-style has become more cheerful. This image will make you feel like a real princess, with big eyes and long eyelashes.
