How To: Recreate the vampish Black Swan makeup worn by Natalie Portman

Recreate the vampish Black Swan makeup worn by Natalie Portman

The Black Swan hit theaters today, and everyone's raving about Natalie Portman's performance as Nina, the ballet dancer who must cope with her emerging evil side.

In the film, Nina competes against Lily (Mila Kunis) to be prima ballerina in a production of Swan Lake. Whoever lands the starring lead must be able to play both the innocent and graceful White Swan and guile and sensual Black Swan. Nina is more suited for the White Swan, but as she expands the rivalry between her and Lily, her darker side emerges.

One thing's for sure, no matter how dark her soul gets in Black Swan, Natalie Portman will always be amazingly beautiful. The dark eye makeup only makes her more alluring and seductive, with a mysterious evil looming behind the winglike shape of the design. If you dare recreate this makeup look, it would be the perfect look for a night out on the town— to go see Black Swan in theaters!

We say everyone who goes to see Black Swan should don Natalie's signature look from the movie— so spread the word! Watch and learn how to recreate the winglike eyes, along with black lips, in lieu of the red, for a more sinister feel.
