The past couple of years have been fun for makeup lovers, not just because brands are being more inclusive in their lines but also because of the creativity that manifests in the packaging of our beloved products. And while whimsical and pastel aesthetics are making rounds this year, we figured leaving out our edgy and grunge-loving beauty enthusiasts is a definite no-no.
This is why we lined up some of the most gorgeous makeup lines that give off the vampiest vibes to suit your fancy.
Rituelle De Fille
Even if they define their line as 'spellbinding', the look and feel of this makeup brand are nowhere near being fairy-like. It brings a fresh and more elegant touch to beauty that is reminiscent of Victorian Goth, and its sleek packaging gives an apothecary vibe that makes you feel undeniably bewitching.
Kat Von D Beauty
From the brand's liquid lipsticks to their foundations, Kat Von D's beauty line has earned its cult status almost in an instant and it's easy to see why. Redefining what a beauty guru should 'look and be' like with her goth aesthetics and her inked body, Kat Von D has brought an elegant yet still bold and eccentric feel to the beauty scene. Plus, even the font and the embezzlements of her brand's packaging reflect a Dracula-esque vibe.
One misconception about being vampy is the affinity for dark colours. But beyond the blacks and the browns, the look also implores one to have fun with bright and bold shades. The difference is the colours are incorporated unconventionally, making them stand out in their unique way. Concrete Mineral is all about that. Taking inspiration from Japan's Gothic Lolita and the Hispanics' Sugar Skulls, the makeup brand incorporates both the vampy and the whimsical trend into one inspired look.
From the product names to the packaging, this brand will suck — pun intended — you into the abyss of a shopping spree. Celebrating all things obscure and wickedly beautiful, Cryptic Cosmetics' vivid imagery sure spikes the excitement to concoct a look that goes beyond experimental.
Here are looks to match your vampy vibes.
