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!

Martha Stewart Dark Living for Halloween

Posted by Gothic.net on September 29, 2014

We were just reminded by Gothic.Org that, even though the new Martha Stewart Living Halloween special comes out this week, we can get started with last year’s and get to all those Halloween projects we might have procrastinated. Most notably, the issue has an online portion with templates for creating all the crafts described in the magazine and those templates include a Raven, suitable for jack o’lantern pumpkin decoration. I’m sure Gothic.Net readers mostly know that Nars makes the best dark eye makeup, but Martha Stewart’s magazine also recommends Tinsley Transfers. Probably many of you are familiar with these fine purveyors of blood and wounds and fake Day of the Dead face tattoos, but it seems like a cool edgy find for Martha Stewart magazine to be sharing. Costumes for men in the magazine tend to lean toward zombie/corpse/ogre and, of course, a wolf for Little Red Riding Hood. Plus there are gothic pet costumes.

Real-Life Serial Killer Joins Dark Minds Season 2 on Investigation Discovery

Posted by The Woman In Black on February 16, 2013

The popularity of shows like “The Following” and “Dexter” proves how fascinated we are with serial killers, and in the new season of Investigation Discovery's "Dark Minds," viewers will hear from a real convicted serial killer, who formulates theories about the motives of unsolved murders.

In "Dark Minds" non-fiction crime author M. William Phelps and criminal profiler John Kelly revisit unsolved homicides believed to be the work of serial killers. Joining them in the hunt for answers this season is a new anonymous source: a convict currently serving time for a series of murders. Known to audiences only as "Raven," this unique source offers his "expert" opinion about potential motivations behind these chilling cold cases, using his own personal experience to formulate theories.

Featuring crimes as horrific as those committed by the infamous I-70 Killer and the original Night Stalker, "Dark Minds" brings fresh eyes to unsolved serial killer cases using the combined instincts of three unique perspectives.

"The emotional toll is overwhelming," says Phelps. "It makes my skin crawl, especially listening as Raven describes the enjoyment he got from taking a human life. But it's ultimately worth it because victims deserve justice and the families deserve answers – and with 'Dark Minds' the potential is there for us to help with both."

Watch a preview clip that introduces Raven below, and if you can handle it, check out more when the second season of "Dark Minds" premieres on Wednesday, February 27th, at 10 PM on Investigation Discovery.
