A Guide to Goth Makeup

A Guide to Goth Makeup The gothic style has come a long way since its emergence in the early 80s. The origins of this alternative fashion genre lie in the styles of the Victorian, Elizabethan and punk eras. It has also been strongly influenced by some major style icons over the years such as Bela Lugosi, Morticia Adams, Siouxsie Sioux and Bettie Page. And nowadays you may find some overlap with the emo and metal scenes. Here's how you can perfect your look with some gorgeous gothic makeup...

Lethal Lips Nightmarish Nails This is where you can well and truly get your vamp on. The obvious lip colour would be blood red.

This means blood red or the infamous "Vamp' brown-red colour made popular by Chanel. O Aundrea. J Edgy Extras Don't forget to play with textures, tones and colours to establish your own unique look. Use the makeup to highlight your best features. And lastly make sure that you look after your skin as heavy makeup can take its tol. Get the perfect goth elothes to match your makeup at Sources: - -
