How to Do Goth Lip Makeup

Learn how to do lip makeup for a goth look in this Howcast makeup tutorial with expert Patricia Longo.


So if you are just watching the Emo video, which I recommend you watch first, Emo and Goth have the same eyes. And pretty much it's black all around the eyes, inside and out. Eyeshadow, pencil, mascara, tons of it. And now we left everything else very, very matte.

So I'm cleaning off her lips and I'm going to put a little foundation on her lips. So everything's the same, just like an Emo video, except for the lips. When it comes to Goth we want black. I never recommend using the same liner as the eye, but if you pencil sharpen it and clean it off and make sure nobody else uses it and it's only used on yourself, then I recommend using a black pencil.

So I'm going to go ahead and line her lips with black. Crazy black. This is really a Goth look. Get a nice black lipstick. Smile. Smudge. So this is really the final step of a Goth look. You really want to get that black in there.

So pretty much the difference between Emo and Goth is Emo has very natural, almost invisible lips, and Goth is black, black, black. Black eyes, black lips. And that is Goth makeup.
