Black Swan has become one of Natalie Portman’s biggest films and one where she deservingly collected a Golden Globe for her performance. In the film Natalie Portman takes on the role of Nina Sayers, an ambitious ballerina who will do anything for the Queen Swan role in the production company’s take on Swan Lake.
There is only one problem: Nina has to play both the white and black swan. She loves having control and being perfect when she dances, which is ideal for the white swan, but tapping into her carefree and seductive side (the black swan) is a transformation that manifests and becomes extremely dangerous.
Battling between two personalities put many relationships in turmoil, but when she dances she is magnificent. When she takes to the stage as the black swan, not only does her style of dancing change, her appearance does as well. Her eyes turn black and red, symbolising the evil intent behind the black swan character.
To get into characters, costumes play a great part, but it can be the tiniest of details that can turn you from a great actress to a Golden Globe winner. So if you’re a ballerina who is looking for some inspiration, why not find out what a pair of coloured contact lenses could do for you? Or, if you simply love the look of the black swan and want to dress up as her for an event, why not find out if you can get into the character better than Natalie Portman by wearing these contacts?
Lover of the look?
With Eyesbright you can steal the black swan’s devilish look by wearing a pair of Hell Raiser contact lenses. These lenses are blacked out with a red line that outlines the outer ring, and are uncannily like the lenses Natalie Portman wears. To get the exact contact lenses she wears will be extremely expensive as they’re hand painted by Kevin Carter. However, at Eyesbright you can get the look you want at just a fraction of the price.
Not only can you change the colour of your eyes with Eyebright, you can even experiment with eye make-up. Natalie Portman wears black and silver feather like eye make-up in the film to generate more swan like features, and this is something you can imitate. By using our glitter shakers in black and silver you will be able to perfect the look, and go out knowing your outfit will outshine everyone else’s.
