Get your Lisbeth Salander on! Those who read the blockbuster crime trilogy know that the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo also played with Fire and kicked the Hornet’s Nest – so it’s no wonder beauty addicts everywhere will be getting their grunge on and adding a little bit of Lisbeth’s disturbed style to their beauty routine this winter.
With hair color blazing red to pitch black, multiple tattoos and body piercings, the introverted computer hacker always had her hands on the action. Act out her distinctive look by taking nails over the edge with a coat or two of darkly intriguing, misunderstood blockbuster beauty style. After all, a little mani/pedi is a lot less painful, a little less permanent and the perfect “10″ Character Assassination!
Duri Cosmetics’ deep hues inspired by Lisbeth’s troubled nature puts nails in character with fiery hot shades and shivering cool Nordic winter whites to capture the complete picture.
Fallen Angel (Dark plum with a hint of red shimmer)
Black Diamond (Black with shimmer)
Dragontini (Dark purple)
Angels and Demons (Dark grey with silver glitter)
Icicle (Creamy white with crystal shimmer)
Frozen Fire (Sheer pink with sparkling crushed ice)
Beauty Tip: Layer Icicle or Frozen Fire over the deep, dark hues listed above for even more Lisbeth Salander looks!

Check out Topshop’s newest makeup collection, a line inspired by 70′s beauty! The collection features a mix of light colors, baby pink and light yellow, and deep reds and bronze tones. The combination is meant to evoke the look and feel of the 70′s.
The line, which is encased in tortoiseshell packaging and stamped with cutwork geometric shapes, includes a blush/bronzer duo, matte eyeshadow palette, an inky-black mascara, kohl eyeliner, and nude-colored lipsticks and lip liner. Something about the makeup feels very ’70s Faye Dunaway, with defined eyes accompanied by soft, neutral tones.
Though we love it all, we’re especially crazy about the Glow illuminator, an iridescent highlighter. The dewifying cream, which creates a subtle, pretty sheen that’s not overly shimmery, can be applied anywhere from the cheek bones to beneath the brow bone to right above the cupids bow.
What it is:
A set of four glitter-packed nail lacquers, exclusively for Sephora.com, that will keep you sparkling through the holidays and beyond.
What it does:
Each glittery shade adds instant holiday glam to your finger tips and toes, all with the same top-quality formula you have come to expect from OPI. Wear alone for subtle shimmer or polish over your favorite nail lacquer for a super sparkly finish.
This set contains:
- 0.5 oz Nail Lacquer in Only Gold for Me
- 0.5 oz Nail Lacquer in Be-Claus I Said So
- 0.5 oz Nail Lacquer in Are You Glistenin’?
- 0.5 oz Nail Lacquer in Sparktacular
What else you need to know:
Sephora by OPI brings together Sephora’s authority in beauty trends with the color expertise and renowned quality of OPI. Each long-lasting, chip-resistant polish ensures flawless results and its ingredient list excludes DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde.
For the release of the latest Victoria’s Secret makeup collection, we went behind the scenes with the brand as they shot their “Fiercely Sexy” ad campaigns. The products, focusing on metallics and one of Victoria’s Secret best sellers, Fierce, range from shimmering shadow duos to illuminating bronzers.
Makeup artist Polly Osmond walked us through the dark, smokey eye look that she was applying to Adriana Lima. Osmond started with the duo liner in Shimmer Fierce, applying black pencil on the eye first and then adding the shimmer shadow duo in Fierce over the top to “intensify the look” and to help the shadow adhere to the eye with the pencil underneath. Using the silver end of the liner duo, Osmond blended the line outwards. She finished the look with Halo, a “natural rosy pink with lots of shimmer in it” for Adriana’s lips to accent her pout.
For the hair, stylist Oribe stuck with the traditional sexy, bouncy, trademark Victoria’s Secret waves. He recommends using either a curling iron or hot rollers (on set he used hot rollers). To maintain volume in your hair all day, Oribe suggests starting at your root and working a volumizer or texturizer through your hair. We also asked him his take on short hair, since many models and celebs have been going short lately. Oribe quickly replied, “They’re all growing it back; at the end of the day boys like long hair.”
