11 Beauty Products For Every Former Emo Queen
Look up any former emo girl on social media, and you probably won’t be that surprised to see that many of them blossomed into Insta-queens and beauty bloggers. All that hair straightening, eyeliner swiping, and Myspace selfie-taking really amounted to something, and it’s inspiring.
If you’re a former (or current) emo girl that missed the YouTube makeup tutorial memo, don’t worry, we’ve got you. In fact, even if you’re a makeup expert, we found a ton of products that will appeal to your sad girl soul while still making you look flawless.
1. This Mask As Dark As Your Heart
Just because you’re emo doesn’t mean you don’t want clear skin. After all, only about a quarter of your face is shielded by your side bangs, you need the rest to look pristine. This charcoal mask by origins is made to clear your pores and make you look as perf as Hanna Beth’s myspace photos.
2. This Pillow For When You Sleep & Pretend To Be Dead
If you haven’t been turned on to the wonders of sleeping on a silk pillowcase, you’re missing out. Basically, sleeping on a silk pillowcase will keep your hair (mostly) in place all night long. That way, you can wake up with a perfectly styled side-bang do, or a faux-hawk. Buy this black pillow to ensure that your pillow matches with your room’s decor.
3. This Lipstick For Kissing The Boys That Make You Cry
Whether you’re breaking hearts or getting your heart broken, you’re going to look great doing it in this Kat Von D shade. If this isn’t your color, there are plenty of other options you can buy with packaging that matches perfectly with your aesthetic.
4. This Hardcore Blending Sponge
Owning anything pink is a no-go, unless of course, it has a skull on it like this emo af beauty blender. Buy it now while it’s on sale so you can save the rest of your money for concert tix!
5. This Sad & Boujee Perfume
Whoever said emo girls only shop at Hot Topic was seriously disturbed. You’ve got a big girl job now, and you can afford fancy things. Luckily, designer brands like YSL still add a little hardcore flavor to their products. Buy this perfume for that fancy emo scent you’ve been craving.
6. This Liquid Lip That’s Literally Called ‘Sad Girl’
Not only is this liquid lip an amazing shade for any emo betch, it’s also literally called “sad girl.” If that doesn’t convince you to buy it, I don’t know what will.
7. This Punk Rock Princess Perfume
If you’re not down to spend $75 on a YSL perfume, you can always go the bargain route with this cheap-ass fragrance from Blackheart. After all, you’re probs going to stink after two hours in the mosh pit anyways.
8. This Black Mask For All Your Alone Time
Sulking alone in your room while listening to your iPod Mini is so 2006. In 2017, it’s all about combatting your depression with self-care. This Korean beauty mask gets the job done, in black of course.
9. This Warped Tour Ready Nail Polish
Honestly, this polish is just made to be Instagrammed (or Myspaced). At under $4, you can’t afford not to buy it.
10. Your Lipstick, His Collar
Remember that time Taking Back Sunday sang about your lipstick on some dude’s collar but nobody knew it was you because you were basic and wore red lipstick? Well, we have the solution.
11. This Fake Tat To Impress That Dude In a Band
If you’re too broke or scared to get a real tat, these Milk Makeup tattoo stamps will have you fakin’ it right until you make it. What better way to convince the bassist to sleep with you? Maybe you can put one on your inner thigh and have him connect the dots?
