The powerful look of the "dark feminine core" is bound to turn heads with its bold use of makeup, embodying dark feminine energy.

Dark Feminine Energy Inspires Dark Feminine Core

Dark feminine energy (DFE) is a mindset embracing maximalism, sensuality, and an elevated take on goth glam. 

The trendy look of dark feminine core is about sultry, confident, and mysterious looks, using black and cool neutrals, smoky eyes, contoured features, and bold lips. The trend, popularized by celebrities like Rihanna and Lana Del Rey, challenges traditional femininity, embracing self-expression and individuality through makeup. It is less about goth and more about a powerful, confident vibe, making it perfect for those ready to embrace their inner villain.
