When it comes to the gothic way of doing things there are always two ways to go about it. You can either opt in for the romantic Edwardian way or the dark vamps of the underground city.

Even though color blocking is something that is not that rampant anymore in the outfit world, it is however a beautiful makeup look that can change your appearance in a positive way. Color blocking is simply the use of more than one color to spice up a look and make it attractive, sharp and appealing to the eyes. Different colors go with one another, for example you could jazz up gold and navy blue to create a metallic kind of look, or you could use different shades of pink with silver or white. Avoid using black eyeliner for some light colors as it will spoil what you are trying to create.

8. Teal Ombre Cat Eyes

I earlier mentioned the “kitty eye” makeup look and this is very similar to it, in fact the kitty cat look forms the basis for the teal ombre cat eyes. The only difference here is the use of color to shade and highlight your eye to create a teal kind of look. It is very simple to doo and yet stunning and pleasing to the eyes, you do not have to be a makeup geek to pull this off.

9. The Black and White Winged Liner

Winged eye liner is becoming more and more popular each passing day. Girls and women are always trying to attain that perfect wing. Although just a black winged liner is appealing to the eye, it will look even more sharp and attractive if a little light color like white is thrown in there too. Don’t you think? The layering of a little white over the black eye liner makes everything unique and pleasant. Looking at it from one angle one wouldn’t be able to tell if you have white or black liner on. Just as it is hard to tell if a zebra is black with white stripes, or vice versa.

10. The Two Tone Lips

Another great work of color blocking, which is one of the biggest trends in the makeup scene today. Here you are simply layering one color of lipstick over the other to achieve a two tone look. This is a very classy look and therefore a must try for every woman out there. The two tone lips use two different shades of lipstick, you can go for a pink and red look, or a purple and pink look. Whatever rocks your boat!

Sometimes a natural look trumps any makeup skill that I cannot argue on, but, as humans it is our nature to want to feel good about ourselves and try new things as “normal can be boring sometimes” so do whatever it takes to be comfortable in your skin, as long as it is hurting no one, then it is good.
