Kristen Stewart is also known to wear makeup with a grunge-goth effect.

Is it time to try out gothic makeup for yourself? According to experts, read on for how to get the look done.

1.Moisturize & Prime

Make sure your skin is properly hydrated when it comes to heavy makeup. Ramzy explains that it''s very important to maintain your foundation smooth while protecting your skin''s moisture barrier. Consider a moist serum if your skin is naturally on the oilier side.

Lori Taylor Davis, a worldwide pro artist at Smashbox Cosmetics, suggests applying a lightweight, pore-minimizing primer before your foundation. This reduces skin texture and may be combined with a mattifying primer, indicating that the skin is naturally matte and flawless.

2.Start With Your Eyes

Ramzy recommends starting with a dark pencil eyeliner (he prefers a deep burgundy but it''s up to you) and applying it to the top and bottom of the lash line. After applying it, apply a small fluffy brush to blend the liner all along the lash line and out a bit. Next, apply a dark brown or burgundy eyeshadow and set the smudged out eyeliner all over.

Lujan advises you can go with a winged liner for a liquid formula (like Kevyn Aucoins Precision Liquid Liner) and go over your lash lines and add a flick at the ends.

3.Enhance Your Lashes

4.Apply Foundation & Sculpt

Next up is your foundation. Lujan suggests starting with a shade that is slightly lighter than your natural skin tone, but Davis advises that you avoid eliminating anything that makes the skin glow. Translation? For goth glam, you want to look matte and not particularly colorful.

If you have applied your foundation, you may add a bit of dimension. In order to do this, Lujan and Davis recommend using neutrals, beiges, and/or soft sculpting and contour palettes to very lightly sculpt the face. Use it to create a soft definition on the cheeks and jawline.

5.Finish With A Bold Lip

You can mix and match your favorite components of gothic-inspired glam to your liking. But, Figueroa says, even taking inspiration from the look with a darker lip works great. It''s about having fun and adding an edge to your look with minimal effort.
