My Roy Lichtenstein Look - Halloween 2015!

This Halloween post is coming a little late but that's because I was abroad. However, I still wanted to partake in doing a Halloween look for you guys! Some people are into couple's costumes and others are into dressing up, but my favorite thing about Halloween is the endless amount of characters you can transform your face into with makeup. If I could, I'd go to work with different funky faces everyday because it requires a lot more creativity than the usual caked up face.

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.
Everything I used for this Roy Lichtenstein Halloween look was already in my beauty stash so nothing new was purchased. Before drawing in the look, I went through my usual morning skincare routine of a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and SPF. Afterwards, the base of my makeup was the same with a face primer, liquid foundation, concealer, contour process, and etc. Once I had my canvas set up with that, I started to draw on the details to the look. The eyeshadow is a combination of Urban Decay shadows from a palette that's been discontinued but I went for a purple themed look to contrast the red lips.

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!
