Goldie Starling's 'Halloween Makeup: Edgar Allan Poe's Raven' tutorial uses the work of the American poet as inspiration for this sinister look. This literary cosmetic post borrows from timeless tales of mystery and fiction, stories that many turn to on Halloween night.

The Edgar Allan Poe clip begins with a white backdrop as Starling coats her face and eyebrows with light eye shadows and concealers. The base is then topped with dark violet lipstick, deep green shading and black lines drawn along the edges of her nose.

To complete the style, the beauty guru made a small bird hat of feathers and various craft pieces. The head covering is optional, though it has a tremendously dramatic effect on the costume.
