As we search for inspiration, looking beyond our own fields and into other artistic arenas is quite commonplace, no matter how far from common the expressive works we find in these places may be. Which is the case today. Today we take a look at some work of an exceptional group of makeup artists who have really taken their artform to exciting and inspirational new heights.
Each of the makeup artists we are featuring in this collection have focused on eye makeup in particular, painting such impressive, detailed designs on such small dermal canvases. Even with such a fine focus, still each of their works rings with unique and clever styles that give the collection an interesting range and broad appeal.
An Eye for Detail
KatieAlves has a playful style, that is as impressive as it is whimsical. She creates and recreates landscapes and other scenes, along with drawing other objects that give her eyelids character.
Misty-Angel‘s work goes in a different artistic direction that is both breathtaking and graceful. With a layered background of color placed, she then draws amazing accompanying imagery on top of or alongside the stunning base she has laid.
mrralphie (a.k.a. Rachel Clarke) takes the collection back to a slightly more traditional area, with just enough flair and attitude to give rise to some truly exceptional and expressive pieces. Homages and originality abound throughout her impressive portfolio.
And last in our showcase, but certainly not least, is hedwyg23, or just Hedwyg for short, whose fascinating, layered works take a powerful turn from the traditional, and are infused with a potent creative edge that has no need to beg for attention or adoration. It garners both without effort.
