Is gothic eye makeup your go-to look? A layer of black eyeshadow, a pair of false lashes, and dark lipstick. Yes, something is still missing. If only there was a universally flattering makeup 'accent' that could add a glamorous, edgy twist to your everyday goth makeup look. How about a good old eyeliner, but in a slightly upgraded version? Here are the 15 gothic eyeliner ideas, that will spice up your look in a matter of seconds. Which one do you like the most?

  • Sharp, Pin-up Eyeliner Style with Red Lip Look


Let's start with the classics: a sharp and thick pin-up eyeliner style. This is probably the most popular and widely used eyeliner look that looks wonderful in many makeup situations. However, if you combine this eyeliner style with a dramatic lip and eyeshadow look, you'll get a wonderful combination for an unforgettable gothic makeup look.

  • Thick Gothic Eyeliner with Drawn-on Bottom Lashes


In the next Goth makeup idea, the thickness of the eyeliner remains the same, but its shape changes. Plus, this look gains a peculiar accent on the bottom lash line in the shape of drawn-on lashes. This is a very popular makeup trick: instead of gluing the bottom lashes on, you draw them with a sharp pencil or eyeliner. It looks both cute and dramatic!

  • Bat Eyeliner Look for Goths


Winged eyeliner in the shape of a bat's wing is almost an essential Halloween attribute. Just like a pumpkin eyeshadow color or a set of creepy Halloween nails. I think you can rock this eyeliner style all year long. You just need to find a color and a shape that matches the rest of your gothic look. It should be a bit less dark and thick in case you want to make it more casual.

  • Solid Black and Red Eyeliner Look


Now that's what I call thickness! A solid black eyeliner with a few colored accents that follow the shape and size of the eyeliner does wonders for your overall look. It makes your eyes look bigger and emphasizes their shape. Leave your lips nude or apply matte black lipstick. You'll love the end result!

  • Graphic Eyeliner with Geometric Elements


Another interesting way to improve your gothic eye look is to add some geometry to it. For example, you can draw thick and sharp winged eyeliner with a small triangle line in the inner corner. A sharp, winged line over the eyelid will add another geometric touch to the look. Keep it neat and sharp for the best results!

  • Red Wiccan Eyeliner Look for Goths


Wiccan eyeliner styles are not your everyday, wearable wings. They are something from another dimension. Very artistic, very complicated, and is very eye-catching. For this look, you'll need two different eyeliner colors: classic black eyeliner and red one. Start with thin lines and slowly thicken them. If you don't feel confident enough, you can pre-draw the line with pencil eyeliner and add liquid eyeliner later.

  • Smudged Pencil Eyeliner Style


A thick and sharp eyeliner look is pretty hard to achieve. Especially if you're new to makeup. Surely a few good old winged eyeliner hacks will come in handy along the way. But if you need a quick fix, just use black kohl to achieve the gothic makeup look you want. Draw a line on your eyelid, pull it outward, and smudge it with a synthetic brush. Apply some black eyeshadow over it to make it look "smoky".VoilĂ !

  • Spider Eyeliner Look 


Along with bats, spiders occupy an important place in Gothic lore. Why don't we put a spider's web on the eyes? I liked the curled upwards eyeliner and long false lashes! They add a special twist to this makeup look. Would you dare to wear it?

  • Upper Eyelid Eyeliner 


Going for a more simplistic Gothic look? Then concentrate on your upper eyelid. Draw a thick winged eyeliner on top, add some falsies, and completely ignore the bottom lash line. You can add some concealer and powder, but skip mascara. This makeup technique works especially good on mature skin.

  • Gothic Butterfly Eyeliner Look


Is it the wing of a butterfly or a moth? I can't say for sure, but it looks beautiful! I especially like the thin, delicate lines. Pair this eyeliner look with a pair of eye-enlarging circle lenses and black lipstick. This makeup is just as suitable for special occasions and parties as it is for an everyday goth look.

  • 80s goth eyeliner


Some studies claim that the Gothic subculture began in the UK during the 1980s. It is also known as Trad Goth or Positive-Punk. What name do you prefer? The name may vary, but one thing stays unchanged – black and blocky eyeliner. Pair it with black or dark red lip contouring (leave your lips unfilled) and you'll get the most authentic Trad Goth makeup look.

  • Starry Night Gothic Makeup


When I saw this romantic gothic look, I knew I'd to include it in today's eyeliner roundup. At first glance, it looks very simple, but this makeup look is a real staple. Purple eyeshadow along with red and black, is a very popular color for goth makeup, along with red and black.

close-up portrait of a young, beautiful woman with goth eyeliner makeup look

  • Dripping Black Goo Eyeliner


Dripping eyeliner can be your worst makeup nightmare unless it's the look you're going for. To achieve the "dripping eyeliner" effect, draw teardrop-like shapes on your lower lash line. A well-applied black or red eyeshadow and white highlighter in the corners of the eyes add the finishing touches to the look. This makeup look is worth trying!

close-up portrait of a young, beautiful woman with goth eyeliner makeup look

  • Double Goth Eyeliner


Double wings or split eyeliner is yet another mega-popular approach to the eyeliner problem. I simply love the double goth eyeliner and even made a step-by-step makeup tutorial on this look. You can wear it on bare eyelids or with grayish-blue smokey eyeshadow. It looks simply fantastic with any makeup style you choose.

close-up portrait of a young, beautiful woman with goth eyeliner makeup look

  • Glitter Eyeliner Makeup with Smoky Eyes


And, finally, it would be a true makeup crime not to mention a glitter eyeliner look. Instead of the classic black wing, which we draw with cream, gel, or pencil eyeliner, this wing is made of pure glitter. Of course, goth makeup will benefit from crimson red or sparkly black glitter. What do you think of this gothic makeup look?

Let's wrap up...


Experimenting with goth eyeliner isn't just about creating a look; it's about channeling your inner creativity. These 15 ideas offer a canvas for your self-expression, inviting you to explore the dark, the dramatic, and the daring. So grab your liquid liner, unleash your creativity, and get ready to paint the town (or graveyard) red (or black, or purple... you get the idea)!

For some people, capsule wardrobe might be a new word, while for others, it can be a familiar word. If you are new to this word and wonder what a capsule wardrobe is, then keep a little patience and keep reading as we are here to discuss and explain the complete guide about the capsule wardrobe. Building a wearable capsule wardrobe may be especially challenging if you prefer an alternative aesthetic in your style. 

But, don't fret! In today's post, we are going to explore everything about a capsule wardrobe and see how you can build your own set for your exquisite alternative style.

What Is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe isn't something new, especially for hardcore fashion lovers. The concept can be shortly described as a short collection of clothes that needs to be coordinated well. The exhibition is thoughtfully curated, easily interchangeable items crafted to maximize the number of outfits you create. You can carefully select around 30 clothes for your capsule wardrobe and assemble a company you can love for any occasion. 

A good capsule wardrobe will save you time, money, and closet space. In addition, you can also maintain a capsule collection of your handbags, like a vegan convertible backpack that can be used in different ways.

History of Capsule Wardrobe


The term capsule wardrobe goes back to the 1970s and belongs to Susie Faux. According to her, a capsule wardrobe contains a few essential and evergreen items, like skirts and pants, that you can carry with seasonal pieces. However, the concept of a capsule wardrobe took off with the designer Donna Karan's first capsule collection, Seven Easy Pieces. The group included a skirt, tailored jacket, dress, leather, a white shirt, and a sweater.

Capsule wardrobes have a revival primarily due to the increased public interest in reducing the negative impact of the fashion industry on the environment and the greater demand for popular and alt fashion brands with sustainable and eco-friendly manufacturing processes.

What are the Benefits of a Capsule Wardrobe?


A capsule wardrobe has many benefits, here are only a few:

• You will have to decide on less


When you have limited options to choose from, it makes you stress-free. On the other hand, when you have so many choices, you can get confused, and it takes longer to decide. However, with a capsule wardrobe, it becomes easier to decide what to wear as you have fewer options. In addition, your capsule wardrobe can help you get more creative with your wardrobe compared to a cabinet with hundreds of items hanging in it.

• Capsule wardrobes are better for the environment


When you purchase fewer things, it can significantly impact the environment. Fewer clothes mean fewer chemicals released into the water bodies and air, fewer clothes dumped in landfills, and fewer carbon footprints.

• You can afford likable stuff


When you stop purchasing clothes, you don't need you have more money to buy more nice and fantastic stuff. This way, you can focus on buying high-quality pieces that can last for multiple seasons and years.

• You will reclaim hours of your life back


In your free time, think of the time you have spent buying clothes over the last few years, including online shopping, trying on, and making returns or exchanges. Then think of the time you have spent managing the clothes in your wardrobe. However, when you build a capsule wardrobe, you can invest less time on all these other things, which gives you more time to focus on other essential items.

• A capsule wardrobe can help you reduce unnecessary stress


When you see a mess around you, it is obvious to feel stressed, which can increase cortisol, the primary stress hormone of the human body. But when you shorten your wardrobe size will clear the mess from your home, and your room can become a relaxing and calming place. Moreover, getting dressed is stress-free when you have a wardrobe filled with the clothes you love; it can boost your confidence.

How to Build an Alternative Capsule Wardrobe?


Well, now it is time to follow a few steps to start building your versatile alternative wardrobe:

  •  Declutter your wardrobe


The foremost step towards developing a minimalist wardrobe is removing items from your current wardrobe that are not in use now. This will allow you to clear the mess and focus on creating a capsule wardrobe with the clothing items you love.

Still having your Barbie pink tops and bell skirts from high school, which simply do not match your current, alternative aesthetic? It may be a perfect opportunity to finally eliminate the mismatched pieces and substitute them with basic black tops, blouses, and simple skirts.

  • Donate and recycle smart


Try to donate or recycle clothes that do not fit you, items that you do not like, and clothes that are similar in style and color. Things that don't go with your body shape or skin type, and lastly, the clothes that are damaged. Now make some space in your wardrobe for items left in the categories like- bottoms, denim, tees, tanks, tops, sweatshirts, dresses, jumpsuits, jackets, and coats.

For old clothes, there are a few ways you can give them a new life and style. For example, using embroidered patches. Because the patches can be easily applied to almost any fabric. You can customize unique embroidery patches at GS-JJ with pictures of your favorite elements. These patches have a novel pattern and excellent quality. Accessorize your clothing with these patches and you can rework boring clothes into something fresh. You'll be amazed at the one-of-a-kind outfits! Welcome to making custom embroidery patches!

  •  Select your core capsule pieces


Once you are done with the above step, it's time to select the clothes you want to include in your capsule wardrobe. While doing this, you need to look for both functional and versatile quality basics. An available piece of clothing is practical and valuable for the current lifestyle. A versatile piece of clothing can be paired with other clothes that can be styled in different ways and carried in your alternative fashion styles.

When evaluating items for their functionality, you need to consider the item's fabric, weight, physical type, and how manageable it is to clean and maintain. While evaluating the garment, consider how easily it can be matched with other clothes, colors, and patterns and whether you can wear it to different events.

  • Create everyday outfits


Now that you have edited your wardrobe and selected core capsule pieces, the next step is to create ten or more everyday works with the garments you have put back in your closet. Including this step is helpful as having pre-planned outfits will make you feel more confident with a smaller wardrobe that can save you time and energy while getting ready. However, to create everyday outfits, you can get inspiration from Pinterest, take photos, start with one pair of bottoms, and find some suitable accessories.

  • Don't forget about the accessories


Accessories always put a final touch on the outfit. Especially, since it is an alternative fashion look. Accessories are like a cherry on top of your current ensemble. The capsule wardrobe is not an exception! 

Keep your accessories on the simpler side: patterned pashminas should be replaced with monotone scarfs, plastic earrings, and necklaces with simplistic jewelry from high-quality material. Of course, the new pieces should match your alternative fashion style and inner feel.


Final Thoughts...


A capsule wardrobe is a timeless trend that helps to save money, time, and energy. In addition, it also helps keep the planet because people who still follow fast fashion are likely to buy clothes frequently and dump them in landfills that remain for many years and release toxic chemicals that are life-threatening to nature. 

But when you follow the trend of a capsule wardrobe, you can contribute to saving the planet by maintaining limited and functional apparel that can last longer.
