Makeup: makeup artist takes over Instagram by transforming her face into famous paintings

by Paige Exell -

While many makeup lovers would argue that performing their day-to-day beauty routines is an art in itself, one seriously talented make-up artist is taking that quite literally, turning her face into a literal canvass.

Californian Lexie Lazear uses the power of make-up to transform her face into works of art by reinterpreting famous paintings like Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night Over the Rhone, Gustav Klimt's The Kiss, Pierre-Auguste Renoir's Two Sisters (On The Terrace), and even works by Picasso, creating stunning displays on her face that have officially won over the Internet.

"I think my favourite part is...deciding what will go where, and how to make it not just a copy of the painting on my face, but instead make the painting as fantasy make-up," the talented make-up artist told Buzzfeed.

In the past, Lexie has proven that she certainly has a way with colours, previously sharing images of whimsical and theatrical designs she created on her own face. The designs include special effects with her eyebrows that makes her appear as though she is crying a rainbow, along with glitter, sequins, and rhinestones that add a whole other level of wow-factor to her face.

With her extravagant designs, Lexie proves that makeup has a unique duality that can be functional in allowing people to develop their own personal style or simply just a canvass to express creativity.

Want to get in touch with your artistic side? Even if you don't have skills like Lexie, more toned down versions of her looks can be easily re-created by swapping a beauty blender for a more painter-esque makeup brush. To start off, unify your base with a liquid or cushion foundation. This will give you a clean, even canvass to work with. Stay away from nudes and boring every-day colours and reach into your beauty stash for some bright shades of yellow, blue, green, and red.

Use coloured shadows or powder formulas to coat your cheeks, and eye lids, and liquid or gel formulas when playing up your eyes and lips. Smaller brushes are ideal when lining your lips, eyes, and creating depths, while larger brushes are best for your cheeks and foundation.

As for the designs, get creative and find out what happens when you swap your average every-day beauty blender for a painter's brush! (hint: it's pure magic). Don't forget to check out her Instagram for inspiration!
