DIY Pop Art/ Roy Lichtenstein makeup tutorial



Tonight we went to a post-Halloween costume party and I really had been planning on doing something non-creative and semi-lame (like this 404 Error: Costume Not Foind)

But after an errand run to CVS and seeing Halloween face paint on sale for $2.99, I couldn’t resist doing something more creative.

I have always liked Roy Lichtenstein’s pop art. My good friend’s artsy little sister did an amazing self portrait of herself of her as a kid for her parents, red dots and all, and I thought it was so cute. Then I saw the makeup tutorials on Pinterest and I couldn’t resist!!

Here’s what you’ll need:
-Liquid black eyeliner
-A face paint kit with brushes
-a good photo of what you want it to look like (I used this one)


1. First, wash your face of any makeup. Then apply concealer where needed and a BB cream to even out your skin tone.

2. Outline the dramatic and heavy brows with your liquid eyeliner and then fill it in. Draw two lines between them to give the effect of being worried.

3. Line your upper lids with liquid eyeliner, then draw “eyelashes” (think multiple cat eye lines). About half a centimeter below your lower lashes, draw a line and then add the outline for the “tears”

4. Outline your face, going from your hairline all the way around your jaw and back up. Trace your nostrils, then draw a straight line down the bridge of your nose.

5. Outline your lips and a little above to give yourself a more dramatic peak on your upper lips. Draw a small line on the Cupid peak (the little dent above your top lips)

6. Now the fun part! Use an eyeshadow sponge and dot your face in symmetric lines to create the pop art effect. Fill in your lips with red paint and a hint of white on the lower lips. Fill in your “tears” with blue paint.

7. Apply some false lashes and….
