After seeing a Black Swan makeup look on the Fragrance Direct website, I couldn’t help but give it a go myself! I had purposely bought white foundation to create this look, however I wasn’t the least surprised when I found out that it suited my skin colour perfectly – just call me a ghost! Since the foundation made no change to my skin colour, instead I opted to use Snazaroo white face paint. Although similar to my Avatar look, it did turn out a little patchy but it definitely did turn my face white!
I used a simple black eyeshadow from the Naked Basics palette to fill in my eyelids and to create the shape I wanted. Using a white eyeshadow, I drew a thin line on my eyelid and proceeded to fill in my waterline. I tried to use the same eyeshadow to give more depth to the black eyeshadow, to give it a feather-like effect but this failed sadly, so instead I opted for black gems. On my lips I used Makeup Revolution Rebel with Cause lipstick. It did bleed out into the white face paint a little, but I adore this shade! You could easily finish off this look by adding white to create a feather effect on the eyes (or perhaps stick on real feathers), and adding a tiara or hairpiece.
I’m having so much fun creating Halloween looks, and I’ve got a few more coming your way this week so keep an eye out for those! Let me know in comments what you think of this Black Swan makeup look!
