Lichtenstein Makeup by @c0louredlights

Have actual hi res images but thought I’d upload this in the meantime… Had wanted to redo my pop art makeup for ages as it was my first ever finished look and I know I’ve learned a lot since then, though I still love the original pictures. Rebecca’s hair being blue and incredible face made a great opportunity to try it again.

I have a soft spot for posting pictures of People wearing Lichtenstein Makeup. some of my  most viewed blog posts of all time are collections of Lichtenstein make up images and I’ve also posted a tutorial I found online which people seemed to like.

So I was pleasantly surprised when twitter suggested I follow @C0LOUREDLIGHTS (Tumblr) a Glasgow based make up artist and upon looking at her profile saw an example of Lichtenstein style make up. Looking through her Tumblr I found yet another which made me even happier:

Pop Art/Lichtenstein Video Tutorials

While randomly surfing the net I cam across the Images above and wondered what the source was it turns out someone at LADY ART LOOKS has put together a tutorial on how to do Pop art and Lichtenstein make-up. Since that seems to be the number one driver of traffic to my blog I’ve decided to put the tutorial here:

I also found another two tutorials so I’ve posted them here too:


 

More Roy Lichtenstein Costumes

90% of my traffic comes from people looking up Lichtensten costumes, that’s a fact. I thought I’d pander to anyone who is looking for more Roy Lichtenstein costume images who isn’t satisfied by my other two posts

The image above is I think of a Redditor, the images below are taken from the Neatorama and reddit comment threads.

Also special mention goes to Robots in disguise’s music video for featuring themselves in Lichtenstein esque make-up (23 seconds in):

Homemade Lichtenstein Comic Book Pop Art Costume

After too many years of the same tired ‘ole remakes and trashy costumes everywhere, I decided to liven things up a bit! This Roy Lichtenstein comic book Pop Art really pops to life (get it?) with this homemade ensemble.

I spent hours polka-dotting myself silly and adding bold comic lines around my features. I sewed heavily colored fabric together to make the dress and lined pleats with fabric paint. I painted heavy lines on high heels and created a foam poster board “thought bubble” that read “Later that night…”GEE, I HOPE I WIN” (a nod toward any costume contests I would enter ;) and hot glued it to a headband that I bought at a local craft store.

I created another foam board sign that read “GASP” to complete the comic look! On my legs I drew in knee-caps and added a “cross-hatching” effect. It took a good while, but I was stoked with the end result!

This is a picture of the woman in the Roy Lichtenstein painting as an actual comic book character.

For this homemade Roy Lichtenstein comic girl costume I purchased a yellow wig and painted black lines in it. I also purchased white stockings and painted polka dots on it. The earrings I made out of cellophane balls. The dress was just a polka dot dress that I have laying around the house. I coated my face with white paint and put red polka dots. I outlined all my features with black liquid eyeliner. I continued the polka dots on my arms with red acrylic paint.

I printed out one of Roy’s paintings and attached it with black ribbon with ribbon arm bands.

 This Homemade Comic Book Pop Art Costume was inspired by Roy Lichtenstein pop art. Every year my goal is to wear a costume that’s original. I hate spending too much money on costumes sold at the store for two reasons, (1) the material is cheap, (2) 87 other people will probably be wearing it as well. This year I decided to do be Comic Book Pop Art which involved paint, make up and markers. I used some clothes that I already had and painted my wig yellow at the ends. It took me about 2 hours to create this cartoonish look. The dot placement and black outlining were key to creating the pop art style seen in comic books. I outlined my eyebrows, eyes, lips, nose, collar bone, cleavage, chin, cheeks, ears, arms, elbows and even my feet and created a “POW” out of markers and poster board paper.

This costume is for sure one of the coolest costumes that I have created.

Lichtenstats

You can tell Halloween is coming up because…

I had a quick look at the stats for my blog just there and I noticed that one post was getting a shed load more hits than any of the others:

I don’t get very many hits, so 40 in one day for an old post titled Cool Lichtenstein Pop Art make up is pretty impressive for me and all because I posted this image I randomly found online:

It’s a cool photo, and I predict that this year there will be many copy-cat photo’s taken for Halloween…

On the off chance that anyone gets to this blog post and wants inspiration I found an article with in progress photo’s of someone doing something similar on a blog called illusion360. It was apparently for a Halloween photo-shoot for MAC Makeup.

I think it’s really cool but I’m not sure I think it’s as good as the one in the original article.

You also might find this image of a girl with pixelated makeup pretty cool.

The article its from is in French (I assume, I didn’t actually read it, but it’s not English) but you don’t need to be able to read to rip it off this Halloween.

That is all really, I don’t have much more to say, if everyone who viewed that original blog post clicked on an ad I’d probably make at least a 50p! that would be awesome… Unlikely but awesome none the less…
Here are a couple of examples of someone who has tried the Lichtenstein look from flickr:
Cheater!

Incidentally after just a little bit of digging I managed to find out that the original picture was by an artist/photographer? called Eva Mueller here is another awesome example of her work:
Hommage to Roy Lichtenstein

In case you hadn’t guessed I’m having trouble sleeping…

Cool Lichtenstein Pop Art make up

Note: If you have reached this post by Googling for it I’ve written a follow up post about this post with more info/examples of this type of make up.

Not the first time I’ve seen images of make up like this but I think it looks awesome. I’ve noticed a growing trend of artists trying to make real life look like pictures rather than making pictures that look like real life. I really Like this image and I just wanted to share it.
