EauMG’s Holiday 2013 Gift Guide for Your Favorite Goth

Elvira Christmas

This is one of my favorite gift guides to put together. Goth is its own subculture with similar cultural influence but the final product over the years has resulted in a diverse aesthetic.

Ursula Andress Makeup Look

Ursula with black hair and I love it! I’m guessing this pic is from the 60’s or maybe the early 70’s.

I have blue eyes and still really love them but I do have to watch out for the undertones in the wine shade or I will look like I have wine-o eyes. When paired with a pale, nude lip, it is a sexy look. Here is a guide to a few burgundy liners ranging in formulas and in prices.
