Black Swan

From Oscar buzz to a pregnant Natalie Portman to that lesbian scene...
everyone is talking about Black Swan
and EVERYONE is trying out their version of the now infamous makeup
Well, it would be just lame if I didn't contribute,
it's such a beautiful look, and I love a challenge!
Here is my take
(please forgive the photography, I am no Berit)
it just so happens that i had the perfect costume
(from a recital about 6 years ago LOL)
Want to recreate this look on your own?
Both KlairedelysArt and MichelePhan have great video tutorials that I referenced

Basically:
Eyes

-block out the shape of the eye in white or neutral pencil
-fill in the shape with white shimmer cream eye shadow
-trace the outline of the shape in black liner
-use the liner to create feathered pattern, and fade it into the hair line
-correct any mistakes with white eyeliner
-apply lots of black mascara
-to mimic the red eye of the movie, use red lip liner on the water line
Face
-heavily apply the lightest foundation possible, and finish with white powder
-using a neutral ash colored eye shadow hollow out the cheeks
Lips
(all the pictures of my lips looked awkward. sorry!)
-use black eyeliner to line the lips and fill in the corners with color
-apply red lipstick in the middle of the lips
-use a brush to blend the colors together

HAVE FUN!
STAY FABULOUS!
