In our Tutorial series, we hand over the reins to some of the most exciting individuals pushing the envelope when it comes to beauty, to lend us their skills and show us how things are done.

Stylist and Dazed Beauty Community member Izzi Lewin shows us how to do a glam goth look perfect for a casual trip to the supermarket or pharmacy. Inspired by musicians like Robert Smith and Siouxsie Sioux – her ultimate beauty icon – Izzi says she feels most beautiful when she is in full goth mode.

“When I’ve got all my make-up on and when my foundation looks super pale and my eyes super bright and black smudgey,” she says. “I can’t go without black nail polish either and love it when it’s chipped and starts to look really grunge. I definitely think a good outfit helps too. I love black patterned tights with black dresses I always feel good in that.”
