The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Inspired Makeup Look

 "A pale, anorexic young woman who had hair as short as fuse, and a pierced nose and eyebrows. She did not in fact have an eating disorder. She had a wide mouth, a small nose, and high cheekbones that gave her an almost Asian look. Sometimes she wore black lipstick, and in spite of the tattoos and the pierced nose and eyebrows she was ... well ... attractive. It was inexplicable." ~ Stieg Larsson.
This is my attempt at recreating Rooney Mara's Lisbeth Salander look in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

About the character: Lisbeth Salander is a world class computer hacker (under the name 'Wasp')with a Eidetic/Photographic memory. A survivor of a traumatic childhood, Salander is highly introverted, asocial and has difficulty connecting to people and making friends. She is particularly hostile to men who abuse women, and takes special pleasure in exposing and punishing them.
