Classic Pop

You can never go wrong with a traditional pop-art look. A few contoured lines and strategically placed dots will seal the deal. Finish with graphic eye shadow, lashes, and some cascading tears.


Seeing Red

To create the c0mic book illusion, paint red dots covering your face and neck. Bonus points for a graphic eyebrow and dramatic winged liner.


Van Ghost

Flex your painting skills with this artistic take on pop-art. Select a color palette and build depth using contrasting shades. Complete the look with feathery brows, sharp lines, and a dramatic lip.


Teary Eyed

Create the illusion of a torn page by keeping your eyes and brows understated. Apply the pop-art makeup on your forehead and from the nose to your neck. Using a brush and a sponge, carefully dab white makeup across your face, just above the brows and at the bridge of the nose. Finish by shading the lines for a 3D effect.


Simple Lines

A simple but impactful look. Strong brows, contoured lips, and a few sharp lines will be easy for beginners.


Color Coded

Vibrant primary colors will add some extra pop to your pop-art look. Get creative with the dots and draw them onto unexpected areas like your cheeks and brow bone.



Express yourself by going freehand. Use the geography of your face as a guide for curling lines and pops of color.


Cartoon Glitter

We love the dedication to a look! Go all the way with temporary hair dye and glitter in a bold color like cobalt blue.
