black swan

Hello hello!

Just as the title states, I decided to do the look from the movie Black Swan. Here's the original look:

Now I'm no Natalie Portman but I tried anyway. Now originally I was going to do a sugar skull look but then I decided to do this instead. By the time I made that decision though, I already put a white base ALL OVER my face, haha. The actual look has white on mainly just the upper half then it blends out to a fair foundation. Let's just pretend I did that okay?

(I cropped out my lips because I didn't have a lipstick color that matched and that pissed me off...)

I was going to fill the inside in with blues and purples but I wanted to use cream liner all throughout and all I had was silver. I edited the eyes to change the color :)

I guess you could call this my first Halloween look. I was so excited to use the Ben Nye Clown White base I just bought. It's going to be perfect for the sugar skull looks I'll be doing for Halloween. Joe, Deej, my friend Chris and I are all going to be sugar skull amigos! I'll have a lot of work to do that day; I'm tired just thinking about it, ha.

This is the aftermath of me trying to wash all of this off in the shower:

Que lastima! ( That means 'what a shame' in Spanish)

I should have done a zombie look right after.

Well, that's all for today. Hope you all enjoyed it. What are your costume plans for Halloween?
