Black Swan Makeup Tutorial

December 16, 2010

PRODUCTS I USED:

I primed my face with Lancome’s La Base Pro.

The white I used on the face was from the Makeup Forever Flash Palette (seriously, every makeup artist NEEDS this palette! Make sure to use a primer if you’re putting it on your eyes because it will crease.)

I set that with Makeup Forever HD powder. (Smells like Fresh Step Kitty Litter to me but it’s truly translucent and works well so I used it!)

The black liner I used to sketch the shape was Lancome’s Le Crayon Khol in “Black Ebony”.

Then I filled almost the entire area of the eyes with the black from the Makeup Forever Flash Palette. I also put on some MAC Fluidline in “Blacktrack” on the main eyelid area because the Flash palette tends to crease sometimes.

Then, I took a thin little brush, and applied some of MAC “Silver” pigment in feathery strokes. A trick is to dampen the brush a little bit with water or a mixing medium to make the silver pigment more like a paint.

Then I traced along the lower lashline with red eyeshadow from one of those 120 palettes.

Because I didn’t have any red contact lenses, and because I am afraid of contact lenses in general — I lined my waterline with red. Natalie’s seems to be lined with a white, or light color, so to kind of get a similar effect I ran a tiny bit of silver underneath my own lashline.

For the cheeks, I first used Lancome blush in “Mauve Coquette” because in certain photos it looks like she has some color there, but in the poster it looks more like a grey to me. So I just went over that a bit with some grey.

For the lips I used three different lip colors but feel free to improvise and use what you have. The first color I used was Makeup Forever’s Rouge Intense in “#48″ (the red), then I went in with “#49″ (a purple), and then I went with a little of “#50″ (a black). You can even use black eyeliner if you don’t have lipstick. The point was, here lips in the poster look like the anti-perfect red lip. They almost look bloody, bruised, and just slightly blurred along the edge of the lower lip.

PRODUCTS USED IN THE MOVIE:


On the eyes, makeup artist Judy Chin used MAC Chromaline in black and went over the top of that with MAC Pigment in “Silver”. She used a red Chromaline underneath the lower lashline.

On the lips she used, MAC Lip Liner in “Vino” and MAC Lipstick in “Dubonnet”.

For the face, she said she used a pale ivory shade of foundation all over with some white mixed in for the highlight areas.
