5 GOTHIC BRIDAL MAKEUP LOOKS
Bridal looks are more diverse than ever. With growing levels of acceptance and individuality, more and more brides are customizing their bridal looks.
Smokey Eye and Nude Lip
This look is a classic but can be interpreted in various ways. Grays and blacks are standard, but experiment with color and a variety of shapes to customize. With slight changes, this look can make your bride look like a porcelain doll or a vampy mistress. It’s up to you!
Mix it up for your goth bride by using deep burgundy instead of black. It gives a unique twist on the traditional Gothic color without losing the spirit of the style. Red dresses are a trend with goth brides, so this look will match perfectly.
The quintessential goth classic is a great choice for a bride wanting a traditional Gothic look for her wedding day. Black lipstick is extremely versatile and can be combined with many different eye-shadow shapes and colors.
A general makeup trend as of late includes the addition of crystals or rhinestones under the eyes or on the tear duct. This sort of look isn’t seen in traditional bridal makeup but it can be a great way to incorporate softness into a Gothic bridal makeup look.
Pink and Purple
A popular makeup combination, pink and purple based makeup can add an edge of whimsy to a Gothic bride. For a softer look, use the pink on the lips, for a more mature and sexy look use purple. If you want you can still use a lot of black in the makeup, just be sure it accents and doesn’t get muddled in the other colors!
