The dark look that subtly salutes the '90s grunge era has been a favorite on the runway as well as primetime television, thanks to such supernatural series as American Horror Story and True Blood. Now that fall has arrived, it's no surprise neo-goth palettes are showing up across the beauty brand board.

To execute the sultry look without going overboard, emphasize one main feature and keep the rest simple. Camilla Belle, Lily Collins, and Rooney Mara all flawlessly execute with bold lips or brows and classic makeup.

The look is dramatic yet flexible; formal enough for a red-carpet vixen like Megan Fox, and casual enough for a snow bunny (in this case, angel) like Alessandra Ambrosio.
