“Crying Girl” by Roy Lichtenstein

OK, smarty pants — this tutorial’s for you. Based on the famous Roy Lichtenstein painting “Crying Girl,” this makeup look is an eerily exact replica of the original. Pair it with ’60s style clothing (the painting was completed in 1964), and you’d even fool Mr. Lichtenstein himself … er, if he were still alive.

Warning: You might spend most of the night explaining your costume to those not as artistically minded. Carrying around a printout of the actual painting could make the explanation a bit quicker. Just a suggestion.
