We recommend Graftobian ProPaint Metallic/Neon Palette for this design.

You may also get all the face paint colors used in this tutorial in one kit. Choose from either the Graftobian Makeup Kit or the Diamond FX Makeup Kit.


Tips: Always start with a clean face. Make sure that all paints, tools and the work area are all clean. Prepare everything you need before you start.

Let’s paint! 

Step 1. Create the base. Load your sponge with Electric Yellow and apply generously on the whole face.

Step 5.  Paint the polkadots. Dip a cotton swab on Atomic Orange and use it as a “brush” to put dots all over the yellow base. This will give it that Pop Art feel to the design.
