Special: Black Swan Inspired Halloween look! (photos!)

I did this just today for the first time and it was amazing! The look is sophisticated, easy to do and can be very dramatic without being complicated! I'm including photos I took a long the way, I simply looked at a photo of this look off the net and basically tried to copy what I saw.

 Continue below for step-by step pictures!

This was what I aimed for! I love how they used blue and purple instead of just black and white! I will definitely want to experiment with color in the future!

Add a layer of regular foundation and then slap on lots of the lightest shade that works for you!

I used a white pencil first to outline the eye's much easier to clean up...

Go in slowly with an angled flat brush with gel liner...

After doing like so...clean up with q-tips (as seen, the cleaning smudged up beneath the eye!)

Use a white base or pencil/primer all over the lid! Add a satin/shimmer dark navy onto the brow bone area!

Pack on a mid-tone blue of a satin/matte finish!

Using the same brush, do the design with the gel liner free hand...

Complete both sides...

I used a brighter teal on the lid and extended it to the tear duct area! Feather out the edges and add the navy to the lower lash line!
Smudge on a purple and pink mixture!

And have fun!

Oh right! Line lips softly with a purplish color and fill with a red or hot pink!

Be fierce! You are now technically a black swan!
