Goth Face Halloween Makeup Video Tutorial

Posted by on

Goth makeup is not always all black and white…Sometimes a little glamour works too.

Supplies:  We recommend Graftobian ProPaint for this design.

You may also get all the colors used in this tutorial in one kit. Choose from either the Graftobian Makeup Kit or the Diamond FX Makeup Kit.


Tips: Always start with a clean face. Make sure that all paints, tools and the work area are all clean. Prepare everything you need before you start.

Let’s paint!
