Gothic Lolita is characterized by darker clothing and makeup. Red lipstick, smokey/defined eyes,and black eyeliner are common Gothic Lolita uses. Though white face powder is sometimes used in Gothic Lolita, white face power is strongly considered bad taste in Lolita fashion. Dark color schemes in Gothic Lolita include black, dark blues and purples, although black and white remains popular. As with some Western Gothic styles, cross jewlrey, religious symbols, bags and purses shaped like bats, coffins and crucifixes are used to accerize the Gothic Lolita look.
