Sales of pale make-up rose 200 per cent over the past month according to online beauty show FeelUnique.com. Their best-selling product was a fine, pale pink illuminating powder by Bare Escentuals called Mineral Veil.

Sales of other rose, ivory and milky-white make-up products have also risen in the run-up to the UK release of New Moon on 20 November.

This sweeping trend follows a growing number of celebrities embracing their natural pale beauty such as Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts, Anne Hathaway and Twilight beauty herself, Kristen Stewart.
