Wall of Flames: Goth Club Look

Do you ever feel kind of lazy when doing makeup? Even though you're completely and totally obsessed and consumed by it most of the time? When I did this look, I was feeling kind of lethargic. I am pretty sure that this is the smallest amount of products I have ever used for a goth club look. I was planning wearing orange and red dreads so I decided to crack out the Sugarpill Burning Heart palette and do a very obvious look. I blended together the colours of flames: yellow, orange, and red. I am pretty sure this is the easiest colour combo to come up with when looking at a palette with the word "burning" in the name. Regardless of the fact that something very similar to this has probably been done a million times before, it still looks pretty cool. I tried layering Hourglass Siren over top of Illamasqua Pristine and that looked pretty cool as well, despite my crappy application that one can see in my close-up lip picture.
