How to Create a Living Litchenstein
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.
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.
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!
I also added a nude eyeshadow, liner, and mascara.
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.
Once all those dots were thouroughly dry I painted on the tears.
Finally the black contour lines were applied using a small brush and black liquid facepaint.
For lipstick, I used a red lip stain.
Voila! Living Lichtenstein. Cannot wait until next Halloween!
