We never knew that our true crime obsession would find its way into our make up bag, but here we are. 

Makeup a Murder is the new cosmetics brand created by self-taught makeup artist Theresa Spencer, and it has us DEAD.

With cinema, literature, podcasts, audiobooks, documentaries and television shows dedicated to solving true crime mysteries, it's hardly surprising that morbid curiosity has been reborn through cosmetics.

The indie beauty brand has over 31,000 Instagram followers, and is building up a name for itself in the cosmetics industry.

The products reference grim topics such as poison, gore, crime scenes, murder and mass incarceration.

The caption on the brand's website is; "Slay faces with crime scene investigation makeup", so they certainly want to make a spooky statement. The capital letters are the final nail in the coffin…

The collection itself is relatively small, with some noteworthy product names. 

The colour-shifting eye shadow comes in shades such as Ricin and Radioactive Waste, packaged in scientific test tubes. 

Luxury Blood Chunk Glitter, Evidence Marker Lashes, Finger Print Setting Powder, the Bloody Blender Sponge (relax, it's just dyed red) and the Criminology Forensic Brush kit make up the collection.

The Instagram page is positively FULL of incredible make-up looks, with neon colours standing out from the crowd.

There's nothing inherently ghoulish or zombified about the actual looks except for the names and product packaging, so don't worry about resembling a particularly macabre Halloween.

We have to admit, the eyeshadow powders look matte as f*ck. Those colours bring some intense light to the darkness of the branding.

Makeup a Murder won't break your bloody bank balance either, with prices coming in at between €4.45 and €26 on their website.

The crime-investigation make up is also cruelty-free and vegan, so it's ethical despite it's links to crime.

We highly recommend the brand, even if it does fuel us to watch yet another Netflix murder documentary…

Former Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle has just revealed that she was close to death after being exposed to carbon monoxide in her LA home. 

The 30-year-old singer, who is in a relationship with American NFL player Jason Bell, admitted that she felt terrified after the whole ordeal. 

Speaking on today's Good Morning Britain, Nadine explained how she suffered from memory loss, extreme fatigue and severe chest pains while living in the property – but she didn't realise what was happening to her. 

"You don't notice it," she confessed and blamed her fatigue on other factors. 

"You're like, 'I'm really tired. Is it with all the flying around, is it jet lag, am I getting sick, is it a cold, have we got a bug, why are we so tired all the time?'”

She also revealed that she started to lose her memory. 

"We couldn't remember the word for table, like, “What is that? Put it on the…” – we couldn't remember what is was."

The Irish singer felt so ill that she ended up going to hospital in order to figure out what was making her chest hurt so much. 

"I thought there was something seriously wrong, and they checked for everything and they said, “You're fine”, and I said, “This still doesn't explain why I feel so bad”.

"Then when the blood tests came back they said it was exposure to high levels of gas, but still he hadn't said it was carbon monoxide."

Ms Coyle then went on to tell the show's hosts that she found out the alarming news after a gas engineer checked her house. 

"The guy in LA had seen that the boiler was faulty, there was a crack in it. It just happened to be someone was coming round – it was so lucky," she confessed.

Nadine then went on to warn viewers about the importance of having alarms fitted in homes, claiming they "could save lives."



Shannon Guess Richardson, who starred in The Vampire Diaries as well as opposite Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side, has been jailed for trying to poison Barack Obama.

The actress is accused of sending letters laced with ricin to both the President of the United States and the then mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg, last June.

The letter to Obama read: “You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face.”

She has now received a sentence of 18 years in prison.

She has since stated: “I never intended for anybody to be hurt. I’m not a bad person. I don’t have it in me to hurt anyone.”
