But Black Women Cant: Rock the Goth

Secret about me? I loathe labels. Really, I do. I have a hard time defining who I am simply because, I am everything. I wear what I want, do what I want, say what I want and pretty much am whoever I want to be. That my sistas, is freedom. And true beauty. With having said that, let’s consider this…..Other people can rock it but Black women can’t….



Our Guest Editor Jaimie’s sister certainly defies that. Oh yes, our dear Jaimie is more than just beauty obsessed, she also has some skills in the make-up application department. And she has certainly changed my mind in a look that I didn’t necessarily think Black women could pull off. I LOVE this series!

Jaimie did eyes and lips. She used (all MAC unless otherwise noted):

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Bright Fuschia pigment
Beauty Marked e/s
Avon Black eyeliner
Dark side lipstick
Funtabulous Dazzleglass
Urban Decay blush in Fetish

Definitely magazine material. I love it! And I have been inspired to try something like this for the next FOTD Friday. We’ll see how I pull it off. Is this a look you would consider trying?

    yeh this is def a sexed up night time look. i’d only rock the makeup though.. but leather attire would be involved… stiletto knee high boots perhaps… 😉

  • Product Junkie Diva

    There is no question this is the goth look. She mastered it from the eye application right down to the lips.

    I have been known to sport the goth look every now and then, particularly in my tribal bellydance persona.
