Porcelain-skinned ladies worldwide, rejoice, our time has finally come to shine (or glow) for pale skin is in.
It’s taken some pioneering – I’ve been pale for many years and Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman and Alice Burdeu have done their fair share to make pale interesting – but who knew a book about vampires would be all it takes to convince the world to be pale and proud. Yes, it seems Twilight fever has tipped everyone over the edge.
According to online beauty store, FeelUnique.com, sales of pale makeup have risen by a staggering 200 percent in the past month. Its best-selling product was Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil ($79), while L'Oreal True Match Pressed Powder in Rose Ivory ($27.95) had a sales growth of 133 percent in the lead-up to New Moon’s November release.
