The Glamour Of The Bat – Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on November 13, 2021

Among all the creatures that make us think of all things spooky immediately after gazing upon them, the best and more representative are, of course, bats. They always carry with them a spooky atmosphere wherever they go, and when we see one, it immediately triggers ideas of hauntings, monsters and other scary scenarios that could follow after them.

For this reason, it is a great idea to try this subtle but glamourous style that Alice Lockhart has prepared for you, where she shows you how to create this look where your eyelashes turn into little bats, ready to fly and flap around.

This is a refreshing look that maintains the face with a white tone to keep the focus on the eyes, while adding tones of orange to the lids and lips, which make the bat decoration stand out even more, while also giving the lips and eyes a candy-like finish with the color, which works unbelievably well as a style that will help you give a whole new meaning to the phrase: batting your eyelashes.

Hey guys! We’ve got another spooky glam makeup look for Halloween! I’ve been wanting to try bat wing eyeliner since I’ve seen sooo many pics of it on IG. Here’s what I came up with! Let me know what you think 🎃

Ethereal Might And Knowledge – Goth Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on November 12, 2021

Emilina Nicole brings colors and gems together in this makeup tutorial to create a nice White Witch look for making an impression going to the grocery store, and there’s a certain level of mystique to it, as it is the look of a witch that seems to have such understanding of the energies that make this world work and how to manipulate them, showing not just an almost ethereal and imposing look about her, but an energy, a pull, a sense of the otherworldly that sends shivers down your spine as her eyes seem to reveal to you that she knows not only who you are, were and want to be, but that she also understands exactly why you are in her presence, and has already decided whether or not to honor your request, and the price she’ll ask in return for her mighty intervention before you have even had a chance to open your mouth to voice a greeting. Such is the magical ability of a witch, and this one wears her power on her sleeve.

HEY BEST FRIEND!!!! This look is far spookier than the last one, but isn’t that what Halloween is all about 😉 This look is very interpretive so you can change it and make it your own as you please! I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you ENJOY!

‘Halloween Ends’: David Gordon Green Compares New Draft to ‘Christine,’ Says It Has a “Very Different Tone”

Posted by Max Weinstein on November 8, 2021 'Halloween Ends' 'Halloween Kills'

Tonally speaking, Halloween Kills runs the gamut: Some scenes, like the ones with quick-witted queer couple Big John (Scott MacArthur) and Little John (Michael McDonald), lean heavily into horror-comedy, while others, like the brooding hospital-bound exchanges between Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Officer Hawkins (Will Patton), feel more like macabre melodrama. But director David Gordon Green says that its sequel, Halloween Ends, will feel like something else entirely.

When Green recently joined the Empire Spoiler Special Podcast, he shared a bit about what fans can expect from the tone of Halloween Ends.

“It’s kind of a coming-of-age film, and it’s a very different tone,” Green says. “That’s what excited me about it, is to have the three chapters that I’ve been involved in be very different from each other. They are all there to honor Carpenter, but aren’t necessary just emulating him.”

Halloween Kills traded in nostalgia and had its share of callbacks to previous entries in the franchise, even including a nod to the iconography of Halloween III: Season of the Witch. But Green says that in Halloween Ends, “there’s not a lot of games in it. There’s not a lot of wittiness and retro joy.”

Green also hints that Carpenter’s 1983 car horror film, Christine, was a key influence on the Halloween Ends script.

“I sent Carpenter the new draft the other night, and I said, ‘If it feels too [much like] Christine, let me know,'” he continues. “For Halloween Ends, it’s just a love of Carpenter. It’s more than just, ‘Hey, here’s a character and a community that you’ve created.’ It’s, ‘Here’s an appreciation of your legendary body of work.’”

Halloween Ends is currently slated for an October 14, 2022 theatrical release.

A Godlike Alteration – Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on November 6, 2021

Heather Moorhouse undergoes an amazing transformation in this tutorial where she starts by covering her face with touches of grey, which she then shades with black lines to create a smokey eye which is then adorned by a touch of golden eyeshadow to create that god-like contrast that makes the eyes look more compelling.

Since this is a Baphomet makeup and this Deity is essentially a goat, she adds heavy lines around the nose to give it that slim doe-like appearance, contouring it with black and leaving the top in white to highlight the slimming effect. The lips are joined to the nose with black lines as well to give an animal-like finish to the lips while maintaining the lower lip emphasized by a lighter tone.

To complete the goat look, she works with both the makeup and a pair of horns that she secures with glue and a bit of latex to make sure she can blend their color with the rest of her face. She even adds a deep-black color to her head and gives some areas a fuzzy-looking finish, to give the impression of fur, and to maintain the otherworldly look, she adds a pentagram on the forehead, which adds the final mighty touch to this amazing dark style.

A touch of occultism is always welcome, all year round. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of the ol’ sabbatic goat themself – Baphomet!

A Message Of Darkness – Goth Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on November 5, 2021

This is a makeup tutorial by _blueNeon where she showcases the look of a Bad Omen for a spooky makeup idea, and since an omen is essentially a prophecy of some event to come in the future, in this case, a bad one, to keep with the spooky theme, she uses dark colors like black around the eyes, and a gentle color of makeup on the lips. Around the face, she adds a visual effect to make it look like there are some veins slightly popping out.

This style also calls for some props, and the ones she wears on her head are some jewels and black feathers. There’s also something she uses on her eyes that enhance the look beautifully, because she wears false eyelashes that resemble raven feathers, which are creatures believed to carry these sort of mysterious messages from the otherworld into ours, and their addition to this look, along with the strong feel they create for this makeup style, is spot on, as it expresses how the embodiment of either the messenger from the great beyond, or the message itself, would make you feel when it shows it’s dark presence.

Happy Spooky Season!

‘Halloween Kills’ Star Omar J. Dorsey Discusses Sheriff Barker’s Future [Video]

Posted by Josh Korngut on November 2, 2021 omar j dorsey halloween kills 1 scaled - 'Halloween Kills' Star Omar J. Dorsey Discusses Sheriff Barker's Future [Video]

As Halloween Kills draws closer to a Blu-ray release, we sit down with franchise star Omar J. Dorsey to discuss his turn as Sheriff Barker in the new Blumhouse Myers trilogy.

In our video interview, Dorsey shares his experience working with David Gordon Green, Jamie Lee Curtis, and even dishes on his ongoing creative collaborations with Ava DuVernay.

Aside from Halloween and Halloween Kills, you may remember Dorsey from his film roles in Selma, Django Unchained, and The Blind Side. Although he’s perhaps best known for his starring role in Ava DuVernay’s OWN series Queen Sugar.

Check out our video interview with Omar J. Dorsey here:

Not only is Dorsey a famous actor, the creative has also been behind the camera recently to direct Live, a social media-infused thriller starring Vanessa Simmons. When asked if he would ever direct a traditional horror flick, Dorsey was enthusiastic but adamant he would need a reliable editor in order to approach such a tactical genre.

That said, Halloween and Halloween Kills are not the actor’s first foray into the genre. You might remember his turn in the first season of Soul City, a horror anthology series produced by Topic. Each season for the anthology sees the multicultural world of a select American city. It then highlights its Black population through the lens of psychological horror stories. New Orleans was the debut city for the series in 2020.

Big Kills, Bigger Bills

Halloween Kills has already earned a stunning $120 million against a $20 million budget in only a few weeks. This is especially impressive since the Blumhouse sequel was released onto the streaming platform Peacock on its day of release.

On the go? You can also listen to our interview with Omar via Development Hell on the DREAD Podcast Network.

Gothic Magnetism – Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on November 1, 2021

I like the idea of a Gothic Fairy. I’ve often seen fairies depicted as colorful beings that fly around spreading glitter and sparkles, so it is nice to see the concept of a more mystical and serious being with a penchant for darkness, which makes the character more intriguing, especially during Halloween season which she did this for.

The part of the nose on this makeup tutorial requires some scar wax which is a bit tough to handle, and still, the tutorial explains things in such a way that it makes them look simple enough for you to feel confident when trying it, even offering alternatives and many tips on how to handle this better to create the most realistic effect possible.

BreeAnn Barbie focuses on black shades for the fairy look, and something she does to have the eyes stand out a bit more in a compelling way is to add a double wing effect to them with the eyeliner, while she paints the lips in black, matching the rest of the gothic style well and makes it look a whole lot more magnetic.

Welcome back my lovely ghouls! Today is the 4th Halloween Makeup look of the season! I have been wanting to do a fairy look for so long now and this is how it turned out! Not too bad for a first time! What do you guys think?! Thumbs up and comment before you go! Xoxo

A Toothless Nightmare – Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on October 31, 2021

We all know the tooth fairy as a benevolent magical being that comes in and takes fallen teeth in exchange for a gift, which is usually money, but what if this being was actually darker than that, and it was someone who comes into your room at night, silently creeping up on you as you sleep to take your teeth away? And not the ones you’ve lost, but the ones still attached to you because she doesn’t have any of he own.

This is the idea that this makeup tutorial by KlairedelysArt works with, where she doesn’t just show you the scary style she’s creating, but she accompanies every bit of the explanation she provides with the thought process that went into creating every aspect of this look, as well as the meaning she was going for behind each component that she adds to the character, which makes it feel more grounded, and increases its horror potential.

Demonic Fascination – Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Posted by Ingram Draco on October 30, 2021

This makeup tutorial by Aleena Averly presents an original take on a demon, and it leaves the horns and charred appearance behind to focuses on showcasing the daunting nature of a being from the underworld. After all, demons are supposed to be charming as well, and when you look at the mesmerizing power this one has, you won’t deny she seems to have the power to convince you to sell her your soul on a whim if she desires to feed on it.

The charming nature she shows with the white color on the top of her face blended into the red tone that comes to life on the lower part of her face and body, coupled with the black lines on her face, give the look an almost fantasy feel, as if this demon was not so much created by the fires of hell, but as the result of several misuses of magick, and that after the caster was done with its experiments, successful or not, this demon decided to come forth from the ethereal plane to collect a hefty price for his entanglement with her realm.

Hey guys! Here is a look based off amazing artwork by Menton3. Takes very few materials and I have always loved his artwork and in particular this look so, had to bring it to you. He has so many amazing paintings, digital art, and tattoo designs, definitely go give him a look and a follow. You won’t be disappointed! Super easy to follow but an effective demon look in the end! I have his social media linked below along with all materials and links for them form the video 🙂

5 Low-Key and Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Posted by Sharai Bohannon on October 29, 2021 Judy Greer Halloween Kills scaled - 5 Low-Key and Last-Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

If you’re like me, you go back and forth on Halloween costumes until the last possible second. As usual, I find myself wondering what I can pull off with things I already own (or should own because I am supposedly an adult) that will take minimal effort. Because of a few popular horror movies, this might be the best year to make a last-minute costume look slightly more intentional (or at least make it seem as if you put in some effort). 

Halloween Kills: The Iron Lady


Odds are you have jeans and a black t-shirt. If so, grab an iron and be prepared to yell, “Evil dies tonight!” whenever anyone asks you what you are supposed to be. If you do not own an iron, or you do not love the Iron Lady as much as social media does, then Halloween Kills made it easy for you by having Michael Myers kick all of Haddonfield’s ass this go-round. You can literally put on anything as long as you remember to say, “Evil dies tonight!” with conviction. 

Malignant: Gabriel


Put your clothes on backward and comb your hair forward if you want to be one of the breakout stars of this year. The wildest movie of the year also has one of the easiest costumes to pull off at the last minute. While wearing all black and a backward wig will help you sell this look, neither are mandatory. Seriously, if your friends do not assume the backward clothes are a nod to Gabriel, then why are you in this friend circle? Overachievers can use make-up if they want to stand apart from everyone else, I guess. 

Werewolves Within: Cecily (Or Really Any of The Characters)


Most of us can put on our winter best and get pretty close to at least one of the characters in this ensemble piece. However, if you want to go all out this Halloween, you can wear a striped tank top with your winter pants. To truly capture Cecily’s essence, you could grab a bottle of kombucha or an ax (I don’t what’s easier for you because I don’t know your life). For added fun, you can have a buddy underscore you with some Ace of Base whenever you have to explain the reference to people who haven’t seen the movie yet.

Superhost: Rebecca


If you also live your life under a messy bun and are prone to giving people wild eye looks, then this is our year! Move that messy bun higher up on your head, grab a pair of jeans, and tell people to rate your AirBnb highly, or else! If you want to make it super creepy, you can rub make-up or ketchup down the front of a tan sweater and show people why we do not ask  Rebecca about an early checkout…

Found Footage, As A Concept

This one sounds generic because it is, friend. We are living in a world with countless found footage movies, so why should we have to commit to just one? Turn your camera on and remember to shake it often. If you want to elevate the costume, you can hit record and document all of your Halloween shenanigans to watch the next day while pretending to work at your day job.
