Hello, SoulFlowers! Welcome to my first Gothic Makeup Experiment. In the 20+ years that I’ve been in the goth subculture, I’ve never tried wearing white makeup. The main reason for this is that I have brown skin and there’s no way that white makeup would look good on me.
But is that necessarily true? Sure, it can be a hard look to pull off, even for goths with naturally fair skin. But, there are a few people of color that have worn white makeup and they were able to pull it off. Will I be able to?
In this video, I decided to give white makeup a try. Get ready to laugh your butt off!
So, how did I do? I think the result was “meh”. This is not a look that I would normally wear. It looks very costumey, so I will save this look for special occasions.
Keep in mind that not only was this the very first time trying white makeup, but I went into this blind – I didn’t follow any tutorials. Luckily, I received some great advice from viewers on applying white makeup. And one thing that is clear: the blush did not work for this look.
I hope you enjoyed the video. After some pointers from my viewers, I will give this look another try. The makeup that I used (it’s a long list) is listed below my signature.
