Vampire Look Invades Fashion World

December 5, 2009 by  

Fashion – particularly the make-up world – is totally in sync with the vampire genre. Nowadays, celebrities are flashing the new pale make-up craze and are not afraid to flaunt their pale complexions. And the inspiration behind this craze is none other than the massive success of True Blood and Twilight.

This may sound absurd to the others, but according to an online beauty shop,, sales of pale make-up increased by a whooping 200 percent during the past month. Also, L’Oreal’s True Match rose ivory powder’s sales escalated by 133 percent. It’s fantastic to know that women – especially those who are pale-skinned who resorted to tanning creams and lotions just to have the famous sun-kissed look – are now proudly flaunting their pale complexions and wearing pale make-up. And celebrities like Twilight’s Kristen Stewart and the UK’s Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts top the list of celebrities who love to do the vamp look.

Siobhan McDermott of FeelUnique said,

“Porcelain skin is a classic, chic and glamorous look but has long been shunned in favor of bronzed skin. It is great to see that this trend is making women proud to be pale and those who aren’t, envious.”

  • Thank goodness for that! I am a high risk candidate for skin cancer and have waited with baited breath for the fall of the tannning bed!!
    I agree, pale and natural is beautiful with a good dollop of factor 15 for good measure.
    At least you won’t catch me with skin like a handbag when I’m 50.

    As our True Blood men (Alex and Stephen) have been in the sun a lot recently for their respective movie roles, please don’t over do the white makeup. Our boys look absolutely ridiculous with the white face look. Go more natural with the shading around the eyes. Obviously, my opinion only but many viewers and fans would probably agree. We all know this is a fictional show. Let’s show our True Blood hotties to their best advantage. Check the white make up at the door please.

    Yes, Val skin cancer is on the rise. Like Eric says, “trade the sun for the moon and stars!”

      Amen to that!(especially if we could trade them to be with Eric!!) STILL waiting for summer and Trueblood!

        I agree Val. Trading the sun for the moon and stars with Eric would be the ultimate. Our Viking vampire rules the night and a few hearts around the world.

    I think that is a great trend! I have had minor skin cancer due to over-sunning(I am pale-and it was all the rage).Staying out of the sun MOST of the time, keeps you younger-looking longer and helps you fend off skin-cancer and wrinkled,old-looking skin.(If the skin cancer doesn’t scare you!) Great article!!
