Fun and Easy Pop Art Makeup – Halloween Tutorial
Hey lovelies! I’m so excited to be back today with another Halloween makeup look and this time it’s something both super fun and easy to create – Pop Art Makeup!
In case you’re unfamiliar, Pop Art Makeup originated in the mid 1950s -1960s when artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol began incorporating more dramatic, expressive elements and styles into their art.
This Pop Art Makeup look is inspired by the Lichtenstein comic-strip style which features bold colors, thick outlines, dramatic expressions, and dots to give it an authentic cartoonish feel.
I love anything retro, so I’m in love with how this pop art makeup turned out and love that this Halloween makeup look is a more fun, light-hearted Halloween costume option if you’re not into the spooky or scary looks.

Easy Pop Art Makeup for Halloween
The best part about this fun and easy pop art makeup for Halloween is you can use a lot of what you already own in your makeup collection to get the look. I’ve listed out all the makeup products I used below, but the main products you need are black eyeliner, pink lipstick, white liquid eyeshadow/eyeliner, and a bright yellow eyeshadow.
This pop art makeup is also a great option for beginners, as the lines and dots are very simple to draw on. I personally always use a makeup brush or eyeliner brush for face detailing but if you feel more comfortable you can always use pencil eyeliners or eyeshadow pens. I always say do what feels most comfortable to you!

Step-by-Step Pop Art Makeup Tutorial
- Start by applying foundation all over the face and brightening up the under eye area with concealer. Next use an angled eyeliner brush and fill in the brows with black eyeliner gel or black face paint. You can go super dramatic here or fill it in like your natural brow (which is what I chose).
- Next apply bright yellow eyeshadow all over the eyelids and blend up into the crease. You don’t have to be super precise here because you want it to look dramatic like a comic book or cartoon.
- Using black eyeliner create a dramatic wing on both eyes, apply eyeliner on the bottom inner rim, and apply black mascara to the lashes.
- Next use the same black eyeliner and draw expressions on the forehead, cheekbones, chin, and nose. You can also add details on your chest/neck as well.
- Using white liquid eyeshadow apply white dots above and below the black line on your cheekbones. Take your time here and try to do them evenly spaced apart.
- Next apply pink lipstick to the lips and outline with black eyeliner. Using that same white liquid eyeshadow add white lines below the expressions and on the lips to give it a more comic-book look.
- Lastly, draw on the tear drops below one of your eyes using black eyeliner. It’s essentially two half circles side by side and a tear drop below it. Fill it in with a bright blue eyeshadow and this look is complete!
What to Wear For a Pop Art Halloween Costume
For a retro look, I recommend wearing a polka dot dress, high heels, and if it’s chilly where you live you can easily pair a white cardigan with it. I actually already had this cute polka dot dress in my closet from a couple years ago and it sort of inspired the whole look.
For your hair, you can either curl your hair and pin it back for a more vintage look, or if you really want to make it fun you can purchase a bright and colorful wig off of Amazon. A bright blue wig, yellow wig, or pink wig would be so fun with this makeup look!
