When good becomes evil, one’s looks often change too. In the case of Ella Swan from Once Upon a Time, she takes on an icy, ethereal appearance when she is reborn as the dark one. Emma’s transformation into the Dark Swan is surprisingly bright and glowing. This look is really fun to recreate, especially if you have darker hair and brows as it makes for a super-dramatic change.

You will need:

  • Luminescent primer
  • White cream color
  • White eyeliner pencil
  • Shimmery white eyeshadow
  • Loose silver glitter
  • Silver liquid liner
  • Cherry red lip liner
  • Matte red lip color
