Plum and Berry Smokey Goth Makeup look with Coastal Scents Go London Palette

This is a look I did for Never Too Much Sparkle's showcase theme: GOTH. Of course the themes are always open to interpretation. While I don't really label myself as goth, I have a lot of goth friends and I do venture out to the goth clubs as I love to dance (my fav type of music is industrial). Makeup can be a huge role in goth looks, but it never has been for me personally. I've been known to arrive at the clubs wearing bright yellow eyeshadow and bright purple lipstick. :-) Why? Because I really don't care for that 10 years dead look (black lipstick, smokey eyes and face powder way too pale). It just doesn't work for me. I express my love for colour through my makeup and that doesn't change when going to a goth club. 
However, I like to show my "goth" side with clothing and accessories. This is a headpiece I made a few years ago and have worn it out to the clubs a few times.

  1. I'm always so inspired by your looks, this is by far one of my favorites and I absolutely love the headpiece!

  2. I love that head piece. Great work and your makeup goes right along with it.

  3. I guess I haven't stopped by your blog for a while... Love the new header pic! Great take on a goth look! That lipstick is amazing!

  4. I love the colours you've used. I really like how far up the eyeshadow goes, too. Different but very lovely and dramatic.

  5. Absolutely stunning, both headpiece and makeup.

  6. I love how you rock just about every single shade of lipstick.
    I think wearing brights to a Goth Club is perfectly fine :) I do it all the time and no one ever shoots me weird looks.

  7. You are so gorgeous! This dark, smoldering look works really well for you!

  8. You made that headpiece yourself?
    That's like amazing, it's so pretty.
    I also really like your make up, it's flawless.
    I wish I had skills like yours.

    Maybe the central piece should be too big for me, but... It's fabulous... I LOVE how it looks :D:D:D:D:D

  10. you look absolutely gorgeous! the head piece looks lovely too.

  11. That headpiece... bah! Bah, I say! I wish I had your creativity.
