By TerryCrayon Blackstar, £23.00
The Long-Lasting Liner
Black liner is a prerequisite for all goth makeup looks – whether you’re channelling Dior's spring/summer 2023 or Jenna Ortega in Netflix’s Wednesday. By Terry’s crayon allows you to create jet-black graphic liners or more of a smudged look in the seconds between you applying and the formula setting. We recommend lining your lower and upper lashes – if your eyelids are naturally more hooded, try Milk Makeup’s Zanna Roberts-Rassi’s trick of taking your liner halfway across rather than into the inner corners.
Anastasia Beverly HillsSoft Glam Eyeshadow Palette, £46.00
The Eyeshadow Palette
Opt for dark browns or greys rather than straight black eyeshadow. It’s a softer, more modern take on goth makeup and emulates Jenna Ortega’s decision to wear a mixture of muted tones rather than the traditional black dress with a white collar. Anastasia Beverly Hills’ palette provides a full spectrum of brown and beige tones to experiment with. Our go-to shades include Cypress Umber, Rustic and Sienna. If you want to go down the grey route, look to Byredo Eyeshadow Palette, £58.00. Use the darker shades to gently define your upper and lower lash lines.
19/99Tinted Matte Balm, £22.00
The Dark Nude Lip
Goth makeup may have traditionally featured a black lipstick, but a dark nude is much more wearable. 19/99’s Tinted Matte Balm provides the right depth of colour and keeps your lips hydrated in the current sub-zero temperatures.
SurrattDew Drop Foundation, £70.00
The Lit-From-Within Base
Replace your matte base for a lightweight luminising formula to achieve that gentle glow. These clever drops can be worn alone or mixed in with your face cream to create your own tinted moisturiser. If you want to dial up your radiance a further notch, try Rare Beauty Positive Light Liquid Luminizer, £24.00 along your cheekbones and Cupid’s bow.
Rare BeautyPerfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara, £10.00
The Lash-Defining Mascara
Lashes should be defined and lengthened, but not over-the-top. Rare Beauty’s mascara is one of our favourites for the jet-black definition. One or two coats will have you channelling your inner goth without flaking or leaving your lashes feeling crispy.
