It's glam to be goth; BEAUTY SPOT fashion.

Byline: CRAIG ALEXANDER WILSON

It's been one of the big make-up trends this year. But don't worry, going goth doesn't mean you have to turn into freaky Marilyn Manson as A-list stars Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna and Sarah Harding have shown. This is gothic glam.

FAB FIND

Dark, smouldering eyes are key to this look and Dior's Twighlight Palette is perfect for parties. Rich, velvety greys, midnight blues and a shimmering black shadow make up this set. I call it "glamourama drama". It's priced at pounds 34, and available from Dior Counters nationwide.

Dark lips aren't for everyone, but the creamy texture of Sisley's Phyto Lip Shine in Sheer Burgundy makes it bearable. This delivers long-lasting colour with a glistening finish. Love these lippies. pounds 21,50, from House of Fraser and John Lewis.

With a name like Sexy Curves, I just had to try this new mascara by Rimmel.

Now you either love these rubber brushes that have been appearing of late or you loathe them, but this design wasn't as flexible as others, making it easier to use and didn't clog up lashes. I did have to curl the lashes myself, though. pounds 7.99 from Boots and Superdrug.

TOP BUY

Add a bit of sparkle to your life and give Lancome's Black Gold Liner a go. This black kohl liner is shot with a delicate golden sparkle and being Kohl means it blends easily for a smoulder that sparkles.

Available from House of Fraser, John Lewis and larger Boots, at pounds 13.95.

I loved the dazzling jewel deep ruby, emerald and dark sapphire shades in Ruby and Millie's Decade Of Colour Night Eyes. This quad of colour will give glam goth eyes and offers loads of combinations. pounds 14, from Boots.

Finish your look with some dark and delicious nail colour. If you fear looking like you've had your hand jammed in a door, avoid black. Nails Inc's Regents Place is a fab purple colour, pounds 14, or try Dior's Red Ebony, pounds 10.50, its wine colour is right on trend. pounds 10.50. Both from House of Fraser.

WHAT'S HOT

Last week I was lucky enough to have a peek into the world of the Armani collection of cosmetics and make-up, which recently launched in Jenner's Edinburgh - their first location north of the Border. Head to the counter and check out their amazing foundations.

Face Fabric, pounds 27, is my favourite but I used Fluid Sheer, pounds 28, on a recent shoot and loved the results it gave, too.

Liquid Liner will quickly transform any look and is a key item for the likes of Dita Von Teese, left.

Urban Decay's Liquid Liner is cheekily called Perversion and delivers a shapely inky black line. pounds 11 from Boots and House of Fraser.
