Gothic Makeup Tips


We all know goths express themselves through makeup and clothes however how dark is too dark when it comes to makeup? Gothic or not we all hate looking like we’ve been punched in the eye!

Get that look right girl!

So, if you are just getting started this article is for you.

  1. Eye makeup
    Choose a dramatic look or compliment your eyes with a unique look using eyeliner only. Combining colours is common but choose to use colours that work well together.
  2. Foundation
    Goths tend to choose a very light foundation, usually choosing a foundation or powder that is 2 shades lighter than their natural skin colours. Depending on how gothic you want to look there is probably no need to use bronzer (that’s too girly right?) Simply use a powdered highlighter on those higher points on your face such as your cheek bones, tip of your nose and forehead.
  3. Lipstick
    So this is where I the fun begins! You have the dramatic eyes makeup look, your skin is on point so now the lips, what on earth are we going to do with your lips? I know! Let’s reassess your eyes, your eyes are dark and fierce! Complete that look with a bright colour! Goth colours usually consist of silvers, purples and reds. Oh! and don’t forget black!

So, it looks like you are ready to go! Don’t forget, dress is all about attitude! Express yourself, be you!
