My Roy Lichtenstein Look - Halloween 2015!
I work in the advertising industry so I wanted to do something art related, which resulted in turning my face into a Roy Lichtenstein art piece. To give some quick background, Roy Lichtenstein led a new art movement in the 1960's with the pop art style. If you guys need additional reference, just do a quick Google search of his art pieces to get a better understanding of my Halloween look.
The main products you need for the look are the following:
MAC's Lip Pencil in Brick: This is my go-to lip liner when I use Kat Von D's liquid lipstick in Outlaw. When you're working with bolder lip colors, I find it absolutely necessary to line your lips first for a clean and crisp look.
Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw: Roy Lichtenstein's art pieces used bold lip colors so I decided to do the same with Outlaw, which is a bright and bold red. Red lipstick is a harder color to maintain throughout the day so I used Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick for it's amazing lasting power.
MAC's Pro Longwear Eyeliner in Definedly Black: MAC's black eyeliner was first used to draw in my eyebrows. I usually use ABH's Dipbrow but given I needed thick and bold brows, it made more sense to draw them in with black eyeliner. The ends were cleaned up with my go-to MAC concealer, which is what I usually use with the Dipbrow. In addition, I used the eyeliner for the lines around my nose and cheek areas to bring out my facial features to make me look more "cartoon-ish."
Shu Uemura's Calligraphy Liquid Eyeliner in Black: I usually use Stila's Liquid Eyeliner but while I was in Hong Kong, I ran out and bought Shu Uemura's during my trip since I could not find Stila abroad. However, I have been loving this eyeliner so look out for a review on it! Anyways, I used this eyeliner to create the winged look and to add some details to my waterline.
NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk: This is the final step of the entire look. Take a second to evaluate your face to see how big or small your dots need to be. If you look closely, the dots aren't random - they are in straight lines, which I planned out first before drawing because this step is what makes the entire look.
I hope you all had a Happy Halloween. Post Halloween is my favorite because it means Christmas is around the corner, along with special edition beauty products!
