Fashion catwalks saw models setting the trend for spooky beauty, so you don't have to hide your dark side this season.
The look we're going for is glam-goth – and all you need is an intense colour palette. So, from subtly sculpted cheekbones to the deepest of red lips, here's how to wear the season’s Gothic beauty look with style.
Lipstick is the focus of this trend and is a reminder that you should never underestimate the power of a statement lip. At the Giles AW15 show models wore deep berry lipstick that looked striking, paired with warm bronzer on cheekbones.
Our product picks
True Colour Lipstick in Vamp - Oxblood red is a beautiful alternative if deep berry is too much.
Equally powerful (but requiring a little more effort) is to wear dark eye makeup with muted lips. Go for a heavy smoky eye, an all-over wash of grey or graphic statement shadow.

Once you are familiar with the basic guidelines of how to create these classic eyes you can stun with sultry Arabian inspired smokey eyes that demand attention.
For a smokey eye look it’s important to create a dark base on the lid, this creates that dark and mysterious effect.
Fill in your entire eyelid using a light shimmery hue then blend it in using a flat eyeshadow brush staying in between the crease and the lid. Do the same thing along the lower lash line and make sure all harsh lines are blended well.
Apply a dark eyeshadow shade from the same colour family you’ve chosen to wear on the lid. With a blending brush, apply the eyeshadow along the crease to create some definition, then apply the same shade on the lower lash line.
Finally, on to lashes! A smokey eye look is never complete without dramatic and sultry lashes so make sure to apply a generous amount of mascara.

- Apply Pout Paint in Lava on just the middle of the lips, filling in the blank space. Leave the centre of your lips blank.
- Apply Pout Paint in Milkshake to the centre of your lips to give your lips a fuller looking finish
- Gently tap powder on the lips and blend along the colour lines to create a uniform finish.

The technique is used to give eyes a really dramatic, defined crease, you simply ‘cut’ the crease of the eye with a sharp line of intense colour. If it’s done right the look is pure glamour; check out our top-tips on how to achieve this dramatic look using Au Naturel i-Divine Palette.
- Create a sharp crease using a precision brush in the darkest shade from Au Naturel i-Divine Palette. Follow the shape of your natural crease making a single line of colour ending just before your upper lash line.
- If you have hooded eyelids, keep your eyes open when applying the crease shade. This will help you create the illusion of a crease.
- The key to achieving a professional finish is blending the crease line up towards your brow bone.
- Highlight just under the brow bone using the lightest shade and line both the upper and lower lash line with the dark crease shadow. Finish with a few generous coats of mascara, we love the big volume lashes we get from our Full Fat Lash Mascara.

Apply a light base - We love our CC Cream as it smooths out uneven skin tone and boosts radiance.
Apply a light neutral eyeshadow - Use brown and beige shimmers, to make people notice your beautiful eyes, not your eyeshadow. Our Au Naturel i-Divine Palette is a beautiful option for this look.
Create a natural flush on the cheeks - Our Crème to Powder Blush is great for creating a natural finish that lasts all day.
Brows - Comb and fill in sparse areas with our Eyebrow Stylist and set with Brow Perfector in Clear. Try to resist filling them in too heavily, however make sure they are defined to pull the look together.
Finish with a moisturising lip colour - Our Pout Polish complements your natural skin tone and warms your complexion giving a ‘your lips but better’ look.
