Black Swan

Who's going a little cray with this Halloween costume makeup business? 

Guilty as charged, but in my defense, having a makeup blog, a deep love for October, and not much in the arena of "self restraint" makes for a pretty rough combination.

I had a request for Black Swan costume makeup, and I was super stoked to try it out.

I did the White Swan and the Black Swan, and the Black Swan was by far the creepiest thing I've ever done to my face (aside from my stint with headgear braces—gonna take a lot to top that one), but O-Mar Epps was it fun :) 

Without further ado . . . 

I need to quit saying this, but I WISH YOU COULD'VE SEEN IT IN REAL LIFE!! Glitter city up in here, (and yes, it was a b* to clean off—I'm still scratching glitter off my neck). The photos just aren't cutting it. My brows were gold, my skin was iridescently glittered, my contour was a gold shimmer eyeshadow, and therefore, my entire face was sparkling like a dang Cullen—felt like a walking chandelier. 

As I've said before, shimmer/glitter always gets lost in photos, much to my dismay, but still, it was pretty fun. 

Cue the Black Swan . . . 

I don't know that I did it justice because I think the real thing is more intricate (and quite a bit blacker), but I had a blast doing it. #longliveHalloween
