My Favorite Halloween/Gothic/Spooky Channels and Spooky Shows

The first two YouTube channels you need to check out, AFTER YOU CHECK OUT and SUBSCRIBE to MY CHANNEL, we’re recommeded to me by one of my best friends Jordan Giuliani.

The first YouTube channel recommendation is, “Lair of Voltaire.” He does amazing DIY gothic projects for his lair and for the last two months he’s been checking out stores like Target, JoAnn’s, etc., which has inspired me a lot with his ideas.

The second YouTube channel Jordan recommended to me is called, “Maven of the Eventide,” where she reviews many, many, many vampire books, except maybe “Twilight.” Hahaha. Even if you’re not into Vampires, the way Maven speaks is very dramatic and funny. She puts on a Bela Legosa accent when she introduces her self and it’s so funny. I love her.

The last YouTube channel that I ran into is Ms. Sara Monster! I am obsessed with her. She is so gorgeous and does beauty tips for rock and roll/ goth girls like the perfect black lipstick, how she quickly does her makeup and hair before she goes to work, and reviews products and a lot more. I met her through YouTube and are becoming friends through Instagram. She’s a sweetheart and definitely recommend her.

“Curious Creations by Christine McConnell” You can watch Christine on Netflix and can see previews of her on her YouTube channel. She makes the coolest spooky inspired food, from starters to mains, to dessert. I’ve been inspired in making some of her delicious delicacies. 

 

BLOGS:

I follow and love many blogs but my favorite spooky DIY blog is “Me and Annabel Lee.” She makes a lot of amazing DIY pieces plus she has a fantastic store that I might be buying from her soon. She also helped me a lot when I became part of the Samhain Society which I’m very grateful for!

The Wasteland Pub

Check out my latest spooky and fabulously fun video all about my Wasteland Pub display. I shot this little video during two different Halloween photoshoots I did today. Stay tuned for that. Enjoy my  youtube video here and make sure to subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t already.

Why So Serious?

Glitter-Cat-Eye

This is something that I wanted to quickly talk about. I’ve mentioned this briefly before in the past videos that I’ve done but had never really gotten into it. This is just an observation I’ve had for awhile when it comes to the craziness with social media and the beauty world.

   Nowadays online, especially on youtube, I’ve noticed that many people get so wrapped up in the bullshit and drama in the makeup and beauty industry. It seems that they love to complain or get in a tizzy over things that really aren’t important or they harp on something that happened over a decade ago.

   Because social media is so big in today’s society, the drama is more prevalent. That’s why there are so many drama channels out there, a lot of which don’t know or speak of actual facts and just create false facts and bullshit. I admit that I watch some drama channels and have befriended a few of the creators, but the ones that I pay attention to have actual truth behind them and sources to back them up. They don’t make up stories or lie just to hurt others or try to bring them down.

   I believe when people say or make videos about lies about makeup gurus, especially when they are successful and huge makeup gurus, I think a lot it stems from jealousy. There are a lot of people who don’t want others to be successful. It’s like that old saying, “Misery loves Company.” It’s so unnecessary and instead of wasting your energy in putting people down, you should use your energy for positive things, like helping people or making someone smile.

  Why should there by any unnecessary negative feedback about beauty or makeup? Especially when there are so many serious things in the world. IT’S MAKEUP FOR GOD’S SAKE! Makeup is supposed to be fun and a platform for people to be artistic and to show off their creativity. You shouldn’t have to worry about being criticized or judged for liking certain makeup brands or creators.

  I don’t want to get into, believe, or follow the drama. I’ll just be on the side playing with my makeup and being my creative self.

Why I enjoy Youtube

You all know that I love posting my youtube videos on my channel, “CarlieMichelle” and on here. I posted a video to talk about my likes and some dislikes on Youtube. A lot more likes than dislikes.

 Here are some other reasons:

First of all it is really fun for me to shoot my product review and my new tutorials.

Also as I say in my video clip here is that sometime I can consider it almost a journal sometimes to have the freedom to rant  without hurting anyone. It’s just an outlet to get my opinions and thoughts out right away.

I know I mentioned this in my “Traveling in Style,” but sometime mixing videos can help create a visual image to help explain tips and ideas better than just the written word.

As far as things I don’t like about Youtube which I explain more in the video is basically any “trolls,” or random strangers making weird and annoying comments for no reason. It doesn’t happen a lot but whenever I’ve gotten them I just laugh and delete and block the stranger.

Hope you enjoy my video on the perks of Youtube. These are just my opinions  and personal experience with Youtube. Thank you for reading and watching.
