The Worst Goth Makeup Tutorials. Ever.

Do you know how it is when you're cruising around Youtube looking for an interesting Goth makeup tutorial because you're either bored with your current look or want to try something new? Well....maybe that's just me, but I seem to have the best luck when it comes to finding the silliest and worst of Goth makeup tutorials.

And so, I'm going to compile them here for you.'s Silly Attempt
~This silly attempt from is kind of cute, but I seriously wonder why non-Goths think they can do legit and good tutorials for this sort of thing.

Just Bitten Gothic
~Don't get me wrong, she's a beautiful girl. But vampire makeup =/= Goth makeup.

Goth Lips Tutorial
~The difference between Emo and Goth makeup is that Emo has very natural lips and Goth is black, black, black, even on the lips. ......herp durp. Okay?

Sexy Goth Makeup for Halloween
~Because Goth is a know?

Goth Makeup is Cool
~She loves all Goth people, it's cool.

Cyber Goth Makeup
~Green lipstick never looks good.

Expert Village's numerous atrocities
~Make sure to go through each video, if you can do so without really cringing.

This set is crap too. ^_^
~And the girl doing the makeup is cute too. What a shame.

Do you hate me yet? :)


  1. Oh my god!! The girl in the picture on top really don't have a clue! Or is it for a masquerade?

  2. I couldn't even make it through the first one, didn't even try the rest.

    I do, however, disagree with the "green lipstick never looks good" thing. It's just that only professional makeup artists can make it work...

  3. Well, fair enough. I think if the lipstick is of good quality and worn right, it can look awesome. But for an everyday user and with a stick purchased in the Halloween Never.

  4. That top picture... WTF? And expert(that's a laugh) village... I watched like three of their videos. Why is this even titled goth?! Then they mixed black an brown shadows. why? Just... WHY?
    Okay I'm done bitching, but wow. I never would have known these people existed , and a few of them scare me a little lol.

  5. I dunno, I find using the occasional single video from Expert Village is good to illustrate a particular technique ( used one to demonstrate using white foundation to lighten a natural shade... but I agree that taken as whole tutorials they are just a bit embarassing.

  6. I was watching these at work, so the sound had to be off, but just from watching the body movement of the first video, yikes.

  7. i think some of them are a joke?! or better: I HOPE. ugh.

  8. The cyber one.... well, the only thing RIGHT about it was choosing neon green and yellow. You can't draw higher than natural eyebrows with your real eyebrows showing - jeez, that should be obvious. And the lips... Maybe she should go watch some of the good tutorials on how to do brightly coloured lips. The one from the blue clown with weird hair was just scary. Something about glueing stuff to her face O.o Mostly eek. I'm amazed that people actually put tutorials this awful up on the internet. Why make a tutorial about something i you don't actually know how to do it yourself??? Since when has brown been a Goth colour? Unless you're doing Steampunk/Goth cross-over, and even then it's from Steampunk >.< The only one that was actually effective was ironically the Halloween costume one - it was a bit heavy, but I've seen people pull that off in Goth clubs. It's just a shame that we're seen as a costume. Oh well.

  9. LOL, they are truly worst when it comes to gothic makeup, they don't even look goth to me, something like punky messy makeup. he he.

    Cheers to all!

Black-Owned Gothic and Punk Fashion Brands to Support Today

On June 1st, calls for a boycott against Dolls Kill went out after the owner of the company allegedly posted in support of the police after the murder of George Floyd. It isn't the first time they've been accused of racism, so folks have put together a list of alternative brands to support. I would much rather give my business to Black-owned fashion brands and those that are anti-racist. If you are of the same mind as I am, here are a few brands worth supporting:

Punk Clothing/Alternative
Sinister Sisters
Sinister Sisters only have three items on their Etsy shop right now and none of those sexy crop t-shirts would look out of place at a death metal gig. Make sure to stop back in regularly to check for new items, I know that I definitely will be!
Nasty Gem
Independently owned, every item in this shop is hand-made, processed, packaged and shipped by the owner. Spiky bags and collars, deadly earrings, and chunky steel accessories are the mainstay motifs of Nasty Gem, but you can fin…

The Indecisive Nature of Libra

Libra is said to be diplomatic, harmonious, and a lover of all things beautiful. They value intelligence, high art, and often have refined taste. Curiously, they are the only sign represented by an inanimate object (the scales) and they function best at moments of stable equilibrium or balance.

That's what all these teen magazine astrology sections would have you believe, anyways, and there's probably some truth to it. I'm a Libra after all and while I can't mould myself to 100% of these so-called Libra traits...some of it is pretty spot on.

I try to see all perspectives and analyze or present them fairly. I am the least confrontational person you will ever meet. I have a particular aesthetic I am rather fond of and enjoy surrounding myself with the quirky things I personally find pleasing and yeah, maybe I spend just a little too much on Korean skincare products. 

Here's the thing about air signs though - we're flighty. And we're insanely indecisive.

Welcome to The Mystifying World of Modern Dating

Truth be told, I have no idea why I did this
To set the scene: I had recently gotten out of my last long-term relationship and was finally moving out to start my life anew on my own terms. My ex and I were on (mostly) good terms, still operating as friends and giving each other life advice (and maybe a little dating advice) so it felt like a good time to test out the dating app scene. He'd been perusing the waters of Bumble and Tinder, but I wanted to see for myself just how strange and difficult this land of online dating really was.

The Experiment:

The first dating app I installed was Hinge - their slogan is literally that they are designed to be deleted, they promise lasting results that fast. Within two hours of creating my profile and answering three conversation-hook questions, three different guys and one girl were trying to match with me.

1. Let's call this guy City Pages - since he's a freelance writer for this local publication. We spent a day or two chitchattin…
