Since the early 2010s, Egirl makeup Looks have been growing in popularity online and in social media. This style is typically associated with bold and edgy looks, often inspired by emo and punk fashion. Egirls can be easily recognized by their brightly colored hair, thrifted clothes, and distinct makeup look.
The Egirl aesthetic is a mix of several different styles, including K-beauty, anime, cosplay, and grunge. They are often seen as a positive force for girl power, as they embrace activities that are typically considered to be outside of the norm for girls while being body-positive, celebrating all types of bodies regardless of size or shape.
While the Egirl aesthetic started out as purely digital, it has gradually become more mainstream in recent years. Their effect can now be found in all corners of the internet, from YouTube and Instagram to Twitch and TikTok. Whether you’re a fan of this aesthetic or you’re just curious about this growing trend, there’s plenty to explore and identify with.
I curated a diverse list of 31 Egirl makeup looks to use for inspiration and to show how versatile it can be! From Billie Eilish’s grunge cyberpunk look to Belle Delphine’s baby doll style, there’s something for everyone. So if you’re feeling cute and edgy today, why not try out one of these Egirl makeup looks?
Innocent, Elongated Eyes.
Create this stunning innocent look with Eyeliner-winged eyes, full fake lashes, overlined lips, and lots of nose freckles. If you want to achieve a similar effect, you can use circle lenses with wide, liquid winged eyeliner.
Go Peachy Monochrome.
Think peachy! Apply a soft matte pink eyeshadow to the eyes and nose, with a light orange tone on the side apples of the cheeks. The lips stand out with a peach coral satin matte lipstick, with a blurred cupids bow. Finally, a champagne highlighter is applied to the nose, a light dose of nose freckles, and liquid wing eyeliner is used to complete the look.
Naturally Exotic and Lifted.
This natural and uplifting look has gorgeous eyes using a slightly smudged dark brown eyeshadow for the wing eyeliner. A brightened eye effect is created in the waterline with nude eye pencil liner, and the lower lash line is defined using the same brown eyeshadow with a flat brush like the 212 MAC definer brush.
Individual lashes are utilized to create various lash lengths to make the eyes look flattering and brow wax is used to compliment the lifting shape of the brows. A cute beauty mark is placed on the bottom right cheekbone. Finally, freckles are lightly dispersed and matte nude lipstick is applied to complete the look.
Cute and Joyful.
Be adorable with this cute, natural makeup! Start by shading under the eyebags and creating a dramatic, winged eyeliner. The shiny pink lips and small nose contour keep the look slim and feminine, while the light pink blush adds a touch of playfulness.
Neko with Goth.
This playful and flirty neko girl style has dramatic brown eyeshadow on the top and bottom of the eyes, prominent highlighter on the brow bone to lift the eyebrows, and almond eye shaped fake eyelashes.
A liquid liner is used to draw a small cross on the right upper cheek and a heart on the left, and the blush is placed underneath the cheekbone for elongated depth. A matte warm, deep pink colour is used to finish the look.
Double Winged Eyeliner.
This stunning piece is all about the eyes! To achieve the key feature of this look, use a matte pink shadow over the lower eyelid and crease and then apply a burnished amber colour in the crease. Use a liquid liner to trace the inside tear duct before drawing the slim winged eyeliner for the top eyelids.
Using an angled brush, take a red undertone, brown matte eyeshadow and taper the eyeshadow out of the lower lashline. Add highlighter to the inner corner and inner lower lash line. Apply the same pink shadow as blush under the eyes and nose tip. Use the same highlighter for the nose, and to finish, use a coral matte lipstick!
Do you love watching anime? Then this is the makeup techniques that you need to try! The coloured contacts and white liquid eyeliner make the eyes stand out, while the black winged liner in the inner tear duct and long lashes make them look bigger. The individual lashes on the bottom add volume and make the eyes look voluminous.
Use a deep, bright pink blush on the cheeks. For the lips, use a glossy, pink lipstick that matches the blush.
Sun Kissed Skin.
Make this gorgeous looking skin the focus. Emphasized with sun like skin, black eyeliner tightlined on the lashline, mascara with full fake lashes, pink blush under the eyes and on the nose, diamond-shaped faux freckles on the nose, an overdrawn cupid’s bow with blurred lipstick on the lips.
Use a very thin amount of lipgloss applied to the upper lip area to add a luster finish. This look is perfect for summer days spent outdoors!
Rock and Roll Exotic.
This look is all about feeling smart with Egyptian inspired eyes. Create the eye of Horus with black liquid eyeliner for the square-winged eyeliner. The long inner point makes the eyes look long. Then draw a straight line and bring it out past the eyes for a sultry stare. Add some round glasses and low flushed blush in a straight line across the nose tip. Rusty rose lipstick is the perfect finishing touch.
Faux Freckles Everywhere.
If you can’t get enough of those trendy peppered dots on the face, then get a load of these freckles! They cover most of the face, from the bottom of the nose right to the temples. The eyes are lined with straight black eyeliner, with a long winged effect. The lips are glossy and bright, with a berry color.

Prepare your skin with a face oil and tinted moisturizer for a dewy, wet skin look. Then apply long and short patterned fake lashes on top of a dramatic black winged eyeliner. Overdraw the cupids bow with lip gelee or K-beauty lip tints to perfect this look.
The Big Eyes.
Have you ever wanted your eyes to stand out with big, bold eyes? To create this look, start by using double eyelid tape to make a higher crease if you don’t already have one. Then, apply dark eyeshadow in the crease. Next, create a dramatic, bold liquid winged eyeliner on the top and bottom of the eyes.
Finally, add pink blush on the sides of the eyes by the eyeliner wings towards the temples and across the cheeks to the nose. To complete the look, apply a pink sheer cream lipstick.
