Comic book girl Halloween makeup.

Comic book girl Halloween makeup.

As I wrote last year, I’ve nev­er real­ly dressed up for Hal­loween before the past year or so. This year, I want­ed to do some­thing spe­cial, espe­cial­ly since we were hav­ing friends over for a low-key Hal­loween hang­out cel­e­bra­tion and I have make­up at my dis­pos­al.

Roy Licht­en­stein has been one of my favourite pop artists since I saw a cat­a­log my art teacher mom had that fea­tured him as an artist. So when I saw Emma Pick­les’ YouTube tuto­r­i­al on how to do a com­ic book girl/Roy Licht­en­stein style look, I became uncon­trol­lably excit­ed. Espe­cial­ly when I real­ized I basi­cal­ly had every­thing I need­ed!

I ulti­mate­ly decid­ed not to dye my hair or use a wig — I thought my curls and cut worked well with the look as they are. I wore a navy dress with white and tan pol­ka dots from Dress Barn and a string of faux pearls to pull every­thing togeth­er.

I’m real­ly pleased with how this turned out. Maybe next year I’ll get even more adven­tur­ous!
