White Swan vs. Black Swan

Ok, I love the movie Black Swan with Natalie Portman and Vincent Cassel. I also love ballerinas. I used to take ballet when I was little and in high school. I loved it. The beauty, the moves, the pointe slippers, and the tutus. Here's my version of the Black Swan and White Swan looks. They're pretty subtle, so it would be a fun look to pull off when you're going out to dinner. I just love the fact that I can just put my hair up in a bun and go run errands and still look half way decent.

A simple white feather headband (Target) gives a White Swan look.


Seductive (not really) Black Swan

You can't tell, because this picture really sucks, but the hair clips have little black feathers on them with little beaded embellishments. I also applied a shimmery black eyeshadow from Ulta on the crease of my eyelid and black eyeliner on my lower lid. I blended the eyeliner for a smokey look.

Ballerina Nails! I LOVE this color. No. 17 from Ulta. Kind of a pinkish nude color.

Get the ballerina Look!

I admit, I did go out and buy some shirts and sweaters in pink and grey. In the movie Black Swan, Natalie Portman's character Nina Sayers often wears comfy clothes and a pair of grey Uggs. I've always hated Uggs! For one, they look like eskimo boots and I sure don't see any igloos in Phoenix! And two, I can't stand the girls that where them. However, I bought a pair of knock off ones in Black and once I put them on, I fell in love! I wear them everywhere now. Anyway, it's only for the comfort factor and they are super convenient and for a Momma with a 5 month old baby, that means A LOT!

Till next time my sweets!
