Back to School Goth Makeup Tutorial
School is around the corner for some of you (crazy to think about!) and I have a baby bat requested Back to School Goth Makeup Tutorial for you. It’s a beginner friendly makeup tutorial and it works for all eye shapes. Honestly, this look will work for just about any situation from work to school because it’s more of a minimal eyeshadow look. Although this isn’t a sponsored video, I did stick to using mostly Nyx products because they’re my favorite drugstore makeup brand. As usual, I list generic color terms in the back to school video tutorial so you can shop your stash for similar shades in your makeup collection.

Beginner Goth Makeup Look
You could absolutely wear other lip colors than the 4 I showcased in my back to school goth makeup tutorial. As can be seen, this is such a neutral look that the lips are the statement piece.

Back to School Makeup Thoughts
I hope you enjoy this beginner friendly back to school goth makeup tutorial! All things considered, using a light wash of grey eyeshadow and then smoking out black liner is quick and easy, making it an ideal daily look when you only have a few minutes to get ready in the morning. I remember hating having to get up early for high school. I never got enough sleep at that point in my life!
As I mention in the video, Nyx is my favorite drugstore makeup brand. They make affordable cruelty-free beauty products at a price most people can afford. I also think this makes them ideal for teens and adults alike. I’m loving their new Sweet Cheeks blushes. I’ve only bought 2 of the glowy ones so far but I’m going to try a matte one soon. While I liked how the Nyx On the Rise Mascara looked in person, it did not look good to me in video or photos. Consequently, I like the dry formula and the brush shape, I didn’t like my results with it. Obviously, I’m still hooked on my Milk Kush Mascara.
While I showcased the Nyx Born to Glow Foundation in Pale for me, it is ideal for normal to dry skin types. However, when I was in school, my skin was oily! In that case, I recommend trying the Nyx Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation if you are oily. And in either case, Nyx makes a ton of primers, so there are a few for oil control! In any event, you can always try some of Nyx’s blotting papers for oil control during the day at school.
