How to Create a Living Litchenstein

November 4, 2013

Everyone knows I love fine art just as much as I love makeup and this Halloween I had an opportunity to fully combine my two loves!  I was asked to help a friend turn herself into Pop Art. The results were amazing (if I say so myself.)  


How to basic: This is a painting, so treat it as such.

  1. I started by "prepping" my model with a light moisterizer to protect her skin (that's your gesso.) Then a base (foundation) of white face paint.

  2. Next I added the countor so even though it would be barely be noticeable to the naked eye, the camera would enure she was flattering!

  3. I also added a nude eyeshadow, liner, and mascara. 

  4. To apply the dots I used a tightly wrapped cosmetics cotton q-tip and applied little dabs of liquid face paint such as Mehron to create the famous pop art stippling technique.

  5. Once all those dots were thouroughly dry I painted on the tears. 

  6. Finally the black contour lines were applied using a small brush and black liquid facepaint. 

  7. For lipstick, I used a red lip stain. 


Voila! Living Lichtenstein. Cannot wait until next Halloween!
