Lichtenstein Halloween Demo: Two Ways

After my last tutorial, I had some requests for videos. This was my first real attempt at making a tutorial video. And because it was way harder than I imagined, it turned into more of a demonstration. I didn't do a voice over or music and I sped it up so that it wouldn't be 30 minutes long.

Things I learned while making these videos:
  • Making videos is hard
  • I need a tripod for my phone
  • I need to shoot landscape and not portrait
  • Videos take up an enormous amount of memory. Yikes!
  • I had no idea how to use iMovie. 

I'm not going to give up on more videos in the future, but there is definitely a learning curve. That's enough bitching about the process, let's talk about the actual makeup.

I decided to do this look on myself and my friend Jessica. She was a wonderful and willing model. I wanted to show a similar look on two different skin shades and how it translates. This is a look that I had contemplated on doing for a while and we had a lot of fun taking our photos afterwards. The final result accentuates your expression, so it's really easy to make funny faces. I'll post some of those at the end.

Lichtenstein Demo 1 (on myself)

After I applied my usual foundation and concealer routine to create a clean palette, I started by mapping out my lines with a brown eyebrow pencil. This allowed me the freedom to explore what I wanted to do without making a mess of my face. Once I got it the way I wanted it, I then went over the lines with black. If you do wear this look out for Halloween, keep in mind that this is a look that can get pretty messed up throughout the night. And you should drink out of a straw. Don't hug anyone and don't scratch your face, which is really hard. The reason it's so hard to keep this look clean is because you can't really set it with powder. You could try a makeup setting spray, but I didn't have any of that to test out.

Lichtenstein Demo 2 (Jessica)

In this demonstration, I used the same techniques, but added different colors and tears. You should search the internet for inspiration and pick and choose which elements you want to include. I used a peach concealer for Jessica's dots because I wanted to give it contrast, but white would be too stark and I saw several examples online with red dots, but to me, they just look like zits.

Here is a list of products that I used in both videos:

  • MAC 239 (eye shadow)
  • Ulta angled fine point liner brush (fine detail)
  • Sephora angled liner brush (strong lines)
  • Sephora flat brush (clean up)
  • Real Techniques detailer brush (lips)
  • Real Techniques deluxe crease brush (concealer)
  • Real Techniques setting brush (blush)
  • Real Techniques fine liner brush (lip highlights)
