Pink Nose E-Girl Makeup, also known as Gamer Girl Makeup, is a style of face makeup characterized by an excessive application of nose contour or blush, a sharp dot of nose highlight and eyeliner designed to elongate the eye. While the makeup style has been an e-girl staple for years, it was popularized by cosplayer Belle Delphine and singer Doja Cat in the early 2020s. The style has been described in popular culture as the "female fedora" and "OnlyFans warpaint," primarily due to its prevalence with female content creators that make thirst trap videos.


While the exact origin of the term "e-girl" is unconfirmed, it is generally understood to be a category that was largely popularized in its current form through TikTok around 2019, where it was used to describe a Gen Z goth/emo or alt style of dressing. The style is influenced by skate, K-Pop and gamer culture and is often adopted by women who post thirst-trap content on the platform. A prominent content creator also known for popularizing the specific style of "e-girl makeup" signified by excessive nose contour is cosplayer and model Belle Delphine, primarily during the late 2010s.

One of the first viral instances of a person showcasing the typical application of e-girl makeup was Doja Cat's Beauty Secrets Vogue video in which she applied makeup with a heavy focus on nose contour and highlight, as well as eyeliner meant to elongate the eye. The video is entitled "Doja Cat's Guide to E-Girl Beauty" and was uploaded to Vogue's official YouTube[1] channel on December 25th, 2019, where it gathered over 26 million views in the three years since its upload (seen below).

The style of makeup is also notably seen in the Doomer Girl Wojack (seen below).
