I'm not sure how successful this costume was since people kept asking what we were. I eventually showed them this google search*** and about a third of the people went "Ohhhh!" We'll see. Try not to cheat =P

No idea where it disappeared.

- I used all drugstore products so I wouldn't be shy about laying them on SUPER thick. You'll need to get the right opacity for this look.
- Start the dots by mapping out four quadrants on your face -- that is, make a line of dots down the middle and across your face so you have something to compare against. Speaking of dots, aren't they even? Tod and her steady dentist-to-be hands did them! My arms got too tired to lift after a while.
- Lightly press the lip liner where you want your dots and twist it on your skin to get a stronger pigment
- Everything is easier with an angle brush or a detail brush (like the 209)
- I used all EcoTools brushes -- they are a GODSEND. And beyond cheap.
- Don't use a NYX Jumbo Shadow pencil for the lines -- it's far too greasy. A little gel liner mixed with NYX black shadow worked the best.
- Don't forget to put mascara on your false lashes. They will not look as cartoon-y as they're supposed to. If I hadn't been running late, I actually would have doubled up on the number of lashes
- Give yourself plenty of time. I was an hour and a half late because I forgot I had to do my own face.
- I know Lichtenstein is supposed to be extremely two dimensional, but I feel so naked without a contour. Take a little of the black eye shadow with an extremely fluffy brush and dust almost all the product off. NYX's black shadow is EXTREMELY pigmented!
- I meant to powder this look with a little HD powder, but I found that even on my greasy skin, none of the make up rubbed off for at least three or four hours. It did get itchy though, so I had to wash it off before I could really test wearing time. A silicone powder might have smoothed things out and made things less uncomfortable. You tell me!
Happy All Hallows' Eve Eve!
