Like this.

\item The first
\item The second

With enumitem: add this to your preamble



\setlist[itemize]{itemsep=some length}

If you want it only for a specific list, write in the body of the document:

  • enumitem is not require \addtolength\itemsep{-4mm} will suffice. So accepting the other answer. Thanks

  • Sure, but if you change the font size, you'll have to adapt \addtolength\itemsep}.
