Makeup Tips N Tricks

Here are some simple tips amd tricks to help make your makeup flawless!
  Thicker Eyelashes
Apply the desired mascara, then apply a powder (eyeshadow, baby powder or powdered concealer) to the wet lashes, focusing on the tips. Apply another layer of mascara and it will stick to the powder, making a 'false eyelash' look.

   Pencil Eyliner Into Gel
Is your pencil eyeliner too thick and hard to apply? Place the tip of the eyeliner under a flame (match, lighter, or candle) for a few short seconds. Allow to cool for anywhere between 5-15 minutes before applying.
   Greasy Eyeliner Made Thicker
Eyeliner too greasy? Put it into the freezer a few hours before use.

   Greasy Eyeliner From Running
If your eyeliner tends to melt, apply a powder of the same color on top of it for extra staying power!

    Make Eyeshadow Pop
If your eyeshadow is too dull or just won't show very well on your skin, try this! Apply white eyeliner or eyeshadow on lids before eyeshadow. This makes the color show up much easier!

    Eyeliner Lines and Wings
Winged eyeliner or the 'cat eye' look has become very popular. But many struggle to get perfect lines or wings. There are several ways to get perfect lines.
1. Line up tape from right below the eyebrow to a little bit past the corner of the eyelid (at desired angle). If tape is too sticky, stick it to your hand a few times before applying. After this, apply eyeliner along tape.
2. Line up the straight handle of a spoon against the corner of the eye, then mark the line with eyeliner. Use the round end of the spoon, lined up from the eyeliner line to the lid and draw another line. Fill it in for a perfect cat eye!
3. Use a business card or post it note. You can measure the card to your eye and cut out a stencil for your favorite eyeliner design.
4. Use a straight edge such as a business card and draw the eyeliner lines along them for straight lines.

   Curled Eyelashes
Have trouble using an eyelash curler on your lashes? Heat it up with a hair dryer before using! Make sure it isn't too hot before using.

   Applying Fake Eyelashes
When you buy a new pair of false eyelashes, put your fingers on each end and bend it. This is hard to explain so click the link. How to Effortlessly Apply False Eyelashes:

Goth Role Models

When I first got a smartphone (and internet) I would stay up all night researching tutorials and such, mainly on YouTube. Here is a short list of a few of my inspirations. I hope they help and can become your role models too!

Kill Natalie-

This was my first active role model. She is very smart and loves writing, poetry, and music just like me!I love her romantic goth style mixed with vampire goth was adorable. She doesn't post much anymore but is definitely worth checking out.

Joji Grey-

Amazing. Awesome. Joji is very opinionated and has plenty of advice for many goth things. There are posts about life, help for people, and even what to do when your parents don't accept you being a goth.

Sebastian Columbine-

Beautiful! She doesn't like gender roles, but for this I will refer to her as a female to make it easier. She is death rock, or trad goth, as some would call it. Tons of tutorials from this girl as well as opinions and advice also. Sebastian is hilarious! If you need a good laugh or just a tutorial for her flawless makeup, visit her YouTube!

Kazlovesbat or @the_goblin_queen -

Allison is one of my favorite of my inspirations. She posts makeup, fashion, advice, opinions, and much more. I love her attitude as well as her look. She is the singer in a band called Esoterik which is, by the way, AMAZING!!! It seems like a mix of traditional 80's goth music and modern music. She is also the best at responding to her fans, especially on Instagram. She responded to me once with just a smiley face, and I about crapped mah pants. She even came up with her own style she calls Elven Goth. It is based off of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Allison is a MUST to check out!

Well hope this list may help and inspire you as these people did for me. :) Feel free to comment. Email me at  Or visit my YouTube channel. Thanks for reading!

Goth DIY

I never realized how easily you can make your own gothic clothing. And its super cheap!
  So, how can this be done? Simple!
1. Go to your local store that sells clothing (even some Walmarts).
2. Look through all materials and consider what kind of skirt/ project you want. If you want a tutu-like skirt, pick out the color of tool you want. Tool is the fluffy, mesh-like material.
3. Pick your pattern. Most places that sell fabrics also sell packets that show one or more patterns you can make in your size.
4. Determine what materials you want for said clothing.
5. Make sure there is enough cloth left for your size and any additions you may add.
6. Don't forget extras! This can be anything from zippers, needles, thread, or small decorations like bows and chains.
7. Start your project!
                   I hope this helps for those who think most goth clothes are unaffordable, making a cheaper, more personalized, alternative.
   Please feel free to comment and even leave a picture if possible of your finished project(s)! Also, any requests for tutorials or recommendations? Comment below!

Red Rum

A poem I wrote a while back.
    Red Rum
Red rum, red rum,
What have I done?
Red rum, red rum,
Dispose of the gun.
Red rum, red rum,
Why did he run?
Red rum, red rum,
Well he lives in the slums.
Red rum, red rum,
Bullet through the ear drum.
Red rum, red rum,
What a bum!
Red rum, red rum,
The struggle was fun.

Red rum, red rum,
Taught him respect.
Red rum, red rum,
Not a single regret.
Red rum, red rum,
Who could forget?
Red rum, red rum,
Paid off his debt.
Red rum, red rum,
I'm not upset.
Red rum, red rum,
After all this bloodshed ...
Red rum, red rum,
He's finally dead!
