Rooney Mara takes on the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo later this week when it’s released in theatres, but her dark and brooding character inspires a few trends worth mentioning. Deeply mysterious and edgy beauty can be yours with just a few quick changes.
With the help of these beauty and fashion items, you too can channel your inner Lisbeth Salander without going over the top.
Start your perfectly piercing glare off right with Stila’s Prime Pot in Taffy to add a muted flesh tone to eyelids. This not only adds a pale wash of color, but also helps keep your shadows and liners in place for long wear. Then, finish off your eyes by lining them with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Barracuda. Slightly smudge it with a cotton swab immediately after applying for a soft and smoky effect.
Add one of these deeply hydrating and creamy lipcolors to the mix from Urban Decay’s line of lipsticks. We like these because they’re dark and somber without looking too goth; Apocalypse, Confession, and Gash. Still think they’re too dark? Apply them lightly by tapping them on your lips with a finger to add the vibe of intense color.
Choose a dim shade of red polish for your nails like Victoria from Nails Inc. It’s the perfect glossy pinot noir hue that sets a somber mood.
