Halsey introduces the next leveled-up category of "superperformance" longwear makeup with two new products - Brow Artist and Line Artist - guaranteed for all-night stamina.

Inspired by the imperfectly messy amalgam of indie sleaze style, the eye-f***ing collection is bold opulence with a spark of seduction and a hint of grunge. Made with super-saturated pigments, these new products emphasize ultimate longwear for makeup artistry that lasts as long as you can. The about-face eye-f***ing collection embraces those longing stares of the after-dark hours. It's sweat-proof, party-proof, life-proof, all night long.

In a true work of 'arch', the about-face Brow Artist Eyebrow Pencil angular, precision-point gel brow offers smooth moves for effortless application of color with impact. Its unique wax blend allows for easy glide to fill in brow hairs with intense pigment that is both waterproof and smudge-free. Its unique polymer provides a natural finish with supernatural staying power for full, dimensional brows. This all-in-one brow pencil truly multi-tasks for easy application and longwearing hold. Offered in a range of eight [8] shades: blond, taupe, auburn, light brown, ash brown, chocolate brown, black brown and soft black, the power pencil retails for $16.00.

Line Artist Longwear Gel Eyeliner is a high-definition liner that delivers potent pigment for long-lasting, vibrant color that demands notice. With easy glide control, this pencil delivers matte pigment to the lash line and waterline, providing longwear in a smudge-proof, waterproof and sweatproof formula. Line Artist features a variety of shades, from deeply bold to bright-all-night colors. To capture more of a smokey eye, turn to Matte Black, Brown, Plum and White. For the brights palette, Halsey chose some of her favorite colors including matte terracotta, yellow, chartreuse, leafy green, teal green, cobalt, baby pink and orange creamsicle. Offered in a total of thirteen [13] shades, this highly saturated pencil retails at $13.00.

"The eye-f**king collection is all you need to pull the ultimate all-nighter", said Halsey, Chief Creative Officer and Head Makeup artist. "Inspired by that electrifying exchange of looks between two strangers meeting after-hours at a club, this new collection is the party-proof pigment that lasts from dusk 'til dawn."

"As a women-owned and operated brand, we are so thrilled to team up with our good friend Halsey, and their makeup brand about-face, to design this new phone case," said Sydney and Devon Carlson, co-founders wildflower. "Both brands focus on encouraging independence, creativity, and authenticity, making this collab feel extra special to do with each other."

The limited-edited phone case designed by Halsey, Devon and Sydney, is the ultimate accessory to capture shots through the night. Produced with a marbleized mix of pink and brown watercolor illusion, this case was created to be paired with late-night selfies in the mirror.  Made with the most durable sandblasted polyurethane black with rubber bumper, this case adds an extra layer of protection – for wherever the night takes you.

About about-face:
Makeup without rules. Made for the many versions of you, about-face is multidimensional makeup for everyone, everywhere created by Halsey and built on the truth that no one is just one thing, and all humans are weird, complex, and imperfectly beautiful beings. Everyone has their own messy, mad, and personal method to becoming the greatest version of themselves, so we make products that are hardworking over hype, designed to celebrate the journey to become every version of us and all experimental versions along the way. Our pigment-saturated, long-wearing, buildable formulas empower self-expression and are 100% vegan and cleanly formulated.
