The first step is the foundation: get a foundation one or two shades lighter than the color of your complexion. Goths generally have an extremely pale appearance, but choosing a good foundation is essential to avoid creating the unsightly ‘white mask’ effect. If you have rather dark skin, in addition to the foundation, also get some white powder to spread over the foundation. This will avoid noticing too strong a contrast with your complexion.
For the eyes use a dark eyeshadow such as black, purple, blue or dark red and have fun with the shades. Then move on to the application of the eyeliner , in this case it is preferable to choose a liquid one because it has a greater hold and gives a better intensity to the look. Finally, use black mascara , for goths the latter is a must, because it darkens the eye area further giving a vampire air. Choose an eyelash extension mascara, which gives an extra touch of black to your eyes.
As for the lips, opt for dark lipstick (red or purple), or alternatively, if you want to create a daytime look that is not too flashy, use a lipstick with a very light shade always to give the pale effect.
