Pop Art/Comic Book Girl Makeup Tutorial

Hi Guys & Dolls!

It’s pretty easy to guess the inspiration behind this tutorial: Pop Art & Comics! This was a  lot of fun to do and to wear- it’s visually striking and if you forget you’re wearing it and pass by a mirror you’ll get a  “whoa” moment! The makeup is so iconic and recognizable that it makes a perfect cheap Halloween costume. There are so many options with this: Dots or no dots, You can wear clothes you already own, use makeup you already have, and you don’t even have to wear the wig, I just thought it was fun!

My recommendations for a costume would be a pencil skirt, a cardigan, and a killer pair of heels or flats, and of course red nails! I used a smartphone “retro handset” as a prop and I think it really enhances the costume! DO a few tests with this before Halloween and you’ll surely be the most charming girl (or guy) that night!

The Wig is from Vougewigs.com

The Sweater is from Torrid.com

The Necklace is from Spirit Halloween

The Retro Handset I bought at FedEx- but it’s terrible (too quite to really use) but great for a prop!

Here’s what I used to create this tutorial

Mehron “basic” Paradise Palette-Water Activated Fave Paint

Milani Shadow Eyez “Aquatic Style” Metallic, Creaseless & Water Resistant Turquoise eyeshadow base

Sugarpill “Afterparty” and “Mochi” eyeshadows (Deep turquoise and Mint Blue)

Physician’s Forumula Eye Booster Liner “Ultra Black”

MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl (White pencil)

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Primer

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer

MAC Studio Fix Powder Foundation

Sugarpill “Porcelain” Lashes

Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara

Make For For Ever Flash Palette Red

Milani Color Play White Pen Liner

Happy Halloween!

  1. wow, all you used for the foundation was the studio fix powder?! stunning. i thought for sure i missed a step because your face looked so flawless. is that the shade you normally use? :)

  2. This is so awesome Cora! I was wondering if you know about Vampira aka Maila Nurmi, the campy 50’s character from the Ed Wood film. I haven’t found any makeup tutorials and I think a tutorial from you would be greattt and that you would also like it!

  3. I’m so excited to do this!
    I have to walk to work, so I’ll probably do this without the dots, unless I can get a ride. I was also thinking of using a pair of colorful skinny jeans instead of a skirt.

  4. I tired to recreate this and I can’t seem to get my eye makeup right,..Just love how you make it looks so flawless and effortless…

  5. I’m facing a dilemma: should I also cover the rest or my body (arms, legs) with red dots? I don’t know if it would make it look better or ruin it all ):
