Natalie Portman Black Swan


Top make-up artist Lauren Hersheson's make-up guide to getting Natalie Portman's femme fatale Black Swan look:

'Natalie has balanced the focus of her eyes and her lips by using a strong red lip with an accented flick of eyeliner.'

1. Start with the lip because this is the most powerful part of the look. Use a rich red lipliner such as NARS lipliner pencil in Jungle Red. Try to balance the top lip with the bottom to achieve a perfect lip shape. Blend the line inwards towards so that no harsh lines are visible. Then add the colour. I like Illamasqua's red lipstick in Maneater.

2. Next take a liquid liner such as Guerlain's Divinora Liquid Eyeliner and line just the upper lash line creating a slight flick towards the outside corner of the eye in the direction of the end of the eyebrow. You can also afford to make the line slightly thicker as it comes towards the outside corner of the eye.

3. Finish by adding a few coats of mascara.
