Start with Whiteface makeup

You should only go one or two shades paler than your own skin tone in order to make it look more natural.
It would also be extremely important to make sure that the base you apply is of a good quality. And, remember about the fact that your natural skin tone must be covered completely; this is why you will have to smooth the base evenly around your face and neck.
Your eyes are a center point
In order to pull off a true gothic look, it is necessary to accent your eyes perfectly. This also includes your eyebrows, upper eyes and eyeliner.
Your eyebrows are to be groomed perfectly
There is no secret that our eyebrows are a visual point on our face. This is why it is extremely important to have your eyebrows plucked and create the perfect shape before beginning to paint them. It should be noted, that this is true for any type of makeup, and not only for the Gothic one. As for the gothic shape of eyebrows, however, a perfect arch would be recommended.
