The evil side to Swan Lake

To start on a lighter note, this song played on an advert and I really like it :)
(also heard in Legally Blonde!)

And to carry on with a darker topic...
Black Swan.

This is such a major film! And great for me as it combines the beautiful art of ballet and also one of my favourite works, Swan Lake. Let me tell you, it was dark and twisted but amazing.

I was totally inspired by the makeup...

The makeup look for the Black Swan is so haunting, I had to recreate it as a tutorial! So here it is below, if you haven't seen it yet :)

To see some close ups and the full effect, I've taken some pictures!

So here is my swatch picture of Nails Inc Denim. It's a bad swatch picture as I made a bit of a mess over my nails! Sorry... but you can see the colour :)

Then I took a picture of Nails Inc Denim next to O.P.I. Ski Teal We Drop since I knew they were similar. Hopefully you can see that they're not quite the same colour, Ski Teal We Drop is ever so slightly darker, but I don't think you could tell if you saw someone wearing either.

I'm played with a bright red lippy yesterday!

This is my new Twitter picture :)

So, have you seen Black Swan yet?
Let me know your thoughts!!

Love love and darklove!!
