With her jet black hair, dramatic dark makeup and head-to-toe black outfits, Gabbriette Bechtel is the cool girl everyone is obsessed with. The 26-year-old model and former musician has captivated the fashion world with her distinctive ’90s grunge and goth-inspired aesthetic, starring in campaigns for major brands like Marc Jacobs, Bottega Venetta, and Skims.

This Mexican-German beauty marches to her own beat. With her confident attitude and unique aesthetic, Gabbriette is leading a revival of the iconic ’90s goth subculture.

To recreate the smoky cool goth and grungy look that Gabbriette always wears, here are some key points and products used for her makeup.

Thin ’90s Eyebrows

Byredo All-In-One Refillable Brow Pencil

Though the results are strikingly bold, Gabbriette’s brow routine is one of practiced ease and efficiency. Honed over years of modelling, her signature arches take just minutes to create with Byredo’s All-In-One Refillable Brow Pencil—a premium, dual-ended, long-wearing brow product with a sustainable refillable design and versatile shade range. This allows the modern gothic icon to encapsulate an entire era’s rebel spirit in the arch of a perfectly sculpted brow.

The razor-sharp arches framing Gabbriette’s piercing gaze are more than just eyebrows—they’re a work of meticulous artistry and a core part of her signature look. With a few deft strokes of her Byredo brow pencil, she channels the decade’s grungy glamour – elevating the humble brow into a work of subversive art.

Smokey Eyes

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Medium

Gabbriette’s signature smoky eye is the centrepiece of her edgy, gothic glam aesthetic. With a few sweeps of rich, molten eyeshadow and a deftly applied wing of inky black liner, she conjures the quintessential ’90s grunge vibe that has made her the new muse for fashion powerhouses.

To create her iconic look, we recommend using Chanel’s Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Medium. This versatile palette features five neutral-toned shades ranging from soft beiges to deep bronzes – the perfect arsenal for sculpting her signature hazy, smoky eye.

Hourglass Cosmetics Mechanical Gel Eyeliner

The key to her smoky eye’s intensity and precision lies in tight-lining the eyes. The ultra-fine, waterproof Hourglass’s Mechanical Gel Eyeliner glides on effortlessly, delivering high-impact colour that defines her eyes with sleek, sharp lines. The liner’s creamy formula ensures it stays put all day without smudging or fading, maintaining the bold, smoky effect that Gabbriette is known for.

Long-curled Lashes

M.A.C Cosmetics MacStack Mascara

The perfect finishing touch to her signature smokey eye look are her lashes. We recommend using M.A.C Cosmetics’s MacStack Mascara to get them looking lush and dramatic. This innovative dual-ended mascara is great for building tons of volume and length without any clumps. It’s this layering technique with MacStack that gives enviable doll-like lashes to frame the eyes.

Darker Lined Lips

M.A.C Cosmetics Lip Pencil In Stone

What is a grunge lip without some lip liner? To achieve her signature darker lined lip look, M.A.C Cosmetics’ Lip Pencil in Stone is the perfect cool-toned brown for the lips. This cult favourite nude-taupe liner allows one to outline and define their lip shape with its velvety, long-wearing formula.

Perfect Nude Lips

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk

Those plush, pillowy lips are more than just a pretty pout—they’re the soft, alluring centrepiece of Gabbriette’s signature look. While her smoky gaze and razor-sharp brows exude an unmistakable edge, that nude lip provides the perfect warm, effortless contrast.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk lipstick is an universally flattering rosy nude shade glides on with a creamy, moisturising formula that blurs lip lines for a plush, pillowy finish. From the precise lining to the blurred, diffused finish, Gabbriette’s nude lip encapsulates the very essence of ’90s grunge glamour.
