Okay, this trend might be inspired by literary anti-heroine Lisbeth Salander but it works perfectly with pale winter skin. Just avoid taking it that literally and swap chalky skin for radiant - ELLE loves the classic Benefit High Beam, £18.50. The rest is wintery perfection.
On the catwalk the goth look was softened with a romantic spirit. Washes of pretty taupe on the eyes balanced deep, dark velvety rich red lips at Gucci, get the lip look with By Terry Rouge Terribly in Carnal Attraction, £31.
Don’t fancy a strong lip colour? Switch things around and layer up kohl liner seen on models at Versus, then go for a blush pink or soft nude on the lips to pretty it up.Finish with a slick of polish in deep purple (with a very fitting name) - OPI Nail Lacquer in Vampsterdam, £11.
