Some days you want to look bright and sunny, others – dark and vampish. A modern Gothic style look doesn’t have to equate to blindingly white skin and black eyeshadow, in fact the best way to channel the trend is to make it deep and dark yet utterly romantic. Your ultimate tool: dark lipstick, be it burgundy, ruby red or plum. It doesn’t have to be a winter look either – you can rock dark lipstick as part of your spring 2013 makeup routine and beyond.
