Dramatize Nose

Apply gray eye shadow to each side of your nose all the way up to your eyebrow and about halfway down your nose (Image 1). This will make your nose appear thin and very dramatic.

Apply Lip Color

To give lips a dark look, use black eyeliner to line the perimeter of your lips (Image 1). Start on the outside of the lips and fill in about 2/3 of the way. Use a flat brush to blend the eyeliner (Image 2). Grab a dark red lipstick and apply to the middle of the lips where there’s no eyeliner. Use a brush to blend the red and black shades together (Image 3).

Complete the Look

Add some rocker accessories, including a wig (Image 1), dog collar or studded chocker necklace (Image 2), cross necklaces and a skull finger sleeve ring (Image 3).
