Welcome to Gothic Makeup.


This community is for GOTHS. Please, do not bother posting if you are looking for normal, sweet, or anything but gothic makeup. (Variations of gothic styles will be accepted such as goth-esque rockabilly, deathrockers, classical makeup that flatters gothic style etc) PLEASE. We are just trying to keep this community for those people it's meant for and there are plenty of other makeup comms on LJ! :)

Every month or so we will have a comunity theme, where members have the chance to submit photos or work they have done inspired by the communities current theme. It gives members a chance to show their creative side and flair.
Some times certain contests will be set for a theme.
Contests may also be run for prizes and winners will be chosen by members.

♥ ♥ ♥

Every so often a member of the community, person or 'thing' will be put into the spotlight and used as our community feature for the month.


PENDING! Need some inspiration! :D
