Music Wednesday #2: riot goth girls 

Sorry for my lack of posts this week, i.ve worked on the paintings for my next groupshow in Belgium this week end. I worked also on commissions. However, i’m back for the music wednesday. 

This will be a only girls playlist, solo or bands. 

1) first is of course the queen of goth Siouxie Sioux. She was and she is a model for so much baby bats around the world. 

2) Diamanda Galas is very impressive. Her way to sing is really amazing, it’s like listening a witch talking with other dimensions. It could be hard to appreciate a first attempt. 

3) Lydia Lunch is a multi tasks artist. She’s writer, poet, singer. I consider her as post punk. She also a true feminist activist. Her texts can be crude and rude. 

4) lene Lovich is one of my favorite. I love her voice and she has a fashion sense which is really my taste mixing folk, punk, goth clothes. She did some featurings with Nina Hagen, but also with Dresden Dolls for example. 

5) if i mention Lene Lovich, i must of course mention Nina Hagen. She impressed me a lot when i was a kid. I remebered forever the first time i saw her in a tv show mid 80s. I just thinked ” wow i want to be her later” 

6) Anna-Varney Cantodea ( Sopor aeternus) is a mystery. Her songs are beautiful and her esthetic too. She is one of the pillar of goth culture. 

7) Dinah Cancer is one of the death rock queen. She was, with her band 45 grave a pioneer. 

8) Gitane DeMone was formerly in Christian Death before being on her solo projects. I love her voice and even without Christian Death her music is good. 

9)Patricia Morrisson was in several bands but especially in Sisters of Mercy and The Damned. She was the bassist before work on solo projects. 

10) Eva O is another ex Christian Death member and was married to Rozz Williams. She has the surname of queen of darkness. 

I will try to update my blog a little bit more often. Feel free to discover more those female singers who made the goth culture.

Make up goals: Cleopatra Style 

The last week was terrible. I’ve waited a very stressful appointment in hospital for my degenerative heart defect. I had several long tachycardias due to my stress which is not good for my heart health. 

However, during those shitty tachycardias hours, when I didn’t sleep I scroll Pinterest and and particularly make up. 

I love make up very much. I love especially eye make up. 

My favorite inspiration came from Egypt / 60s/ trad goth 80s and I have a pretty usual routine. Now, I want try some new things.  

 I show you my selection. 


Those make up will be great for quick daily routine. I really love oriental eyes with kajal.  I love the shape of the first one, but i need training ah ah ! 


Here, make up for day and for parties the Horus eye which is amazing. I don’t like the turquoise and I think I will replace it by purple. I like long lines and points.  I work my own make more like this with a white touch. I will show you my daily routine. 


The last is More post punk than trad goth but my favorite, opening eye like a manga girl. It’s a look from 1982, wore by Diane Lane in “Ladies and Gentlemen, the fabulous Stains ” movie. I really need to try, perhaps for a gig or a party. 

What are your make up goals ?
