Hello friends! I created my Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial for an online magazine in July of 2010. I had so much fun putting this look together that I wanted to share it here too.

Here are the Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial products that I used:
Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial
Start with a clean eye & apply eye shadow primer. I used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but your favorite clear eyeshadow primer will work! I also recommend Concrete Minerals Glitter eye primer.
With a small detail brush, apply Bubble Bath to the inner v.
With a lid brush, apply Chick Flick to the lid, blending with the inner v.
With a small detail brush, apply Bird Song to the inner crease.
With a fiber optic pointed crease brush, apply Cuddles to the outer crease and outer v, blending with Bird Song in the inner crease.
With a highlighter brush, apply In the Buff on the browbone. You can also do this step before you do the crease colors when trying the Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial at home.
Brush your brows into place. Apply brow wax or pomade to your brows. Apply Dollipop with an angled brow brush. Try Sugarpill Tokyo as Dollipop has been discontinued.
Apply Black Out Gel Liner with a pointed eyeliner brush. Start at about the middle of the lid and line the eye going inward. This is how I prevent getting too thick a line at the inner corner in this Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial.
Apply Black Out Gel Liner with a pointed eyeliner brush. Start from the middle of the lid and work outward, extending the liner for a cat eye.
Apply Black Out Gel Liner with a pointed eyeliner brush.
Add a second flick underneath the first, mimicking lashes.
Apply Black Out Gel Liner with a pointed eyeliner brush. Along the lower lash line, draw a line from the outer corner to about halfway inside the lower lash line.
Apply Sweat Pants to inner lower lash line with a smudge brush.
Apply Urban Decay eye lash primer.
Apply Flirt! It Curl mascara in Bombshell Black.
Apply Yeyo to lower water line.
Apply a pale foundation with a kabuki brush. I used Meow’s Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese.
Apply Vellum under eyebrows with a detail brush.
Apply Charm blush to cheeks with an angled fiber optic blush brush.
Apply Pink Provacateur matte side to contour with a large fluffy eye shadow brush.
Apply Metamorphosis finishing powder with a fiber optic face brush. Fiber optic brushes are a must with loose mineral indie makeup!
Apply Borderline Lipliner to lips.
Apply Lollipop-pop lip lustre.

Final Thoughts on the Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial
I love wearing circle lenses, hair falls, and putting together a fun Candy Gothic Lolita Tutorial. There are so many different flavors of goth! You have traditional, punk, perky, cyber goth, romantic, witch / strega, and more! There’s a type of goth to suit everyone’s taste, even cottagecore.
What’s your favorite flavor of gothic makeup and fashion?
