Ah, the teenage years. So full of angst and turmoil, and the only way to truly communicate all those feelings was through black eyeliner and scene-inspired getups. If you miss those days, here are 15 modern goth makeup tutorials your 16-year-old self would totally approve of.
Goth and '90s-inspired grunge are back thanks to brown lips a la Kylie Jenner and the chic rise of black nails, lips, and eyes. Except if you're a young millennial, you probably missed out on the peak of the goth scene in the '80s and '90s. Instead, you were lining your eyes with smudgy, kohl black liner — the early '00s take on goth was shaped largely by makeup artists like Jeffree Star. Now, we're well into 2016 and mashing up all these inspirations for a unique, modern gothic look.
Whether it's Kat Von D's dark vampy lips, greige on the pout, or dramatic smoldering eyes, we love moodiness in our makeup. Neons, browns, blacks, purple, and granny gray are huge and show no sign of slowing down. Throw on a choker and it's like you're in high school again (but, this time, even cooler).
