If anyone tries to say makeup isn’t an art, they’ve clearly never seen a nose contour tutorial before. But beyond your daily glow up routine, it’s important to note that makeup truly is a form of creative art.

Ahead are a few artists on Instagram who showcase their creativity, talents, and imagination using their own face as a canvas. Trust us, you’ll be completely blown away by their out-of-the-box transformations.

Very surreal and exciting experience to talk with @voguebeauty ! Link in bio to article.

Juliana’s makeup looks venture far beyond the “everyday” to “glam” spectrum. Her talent on paper and canvas is perfectly translated into her makeup looks as she uses her face to create abstract pieces of art. If you’re an aspiring makeup artist, her feed is full of inspo.


@tal_peleg
Any Disney fans here? What about La La Land or The Little Prince? Tal uses her tal-ent (sorry, we had to) to recreate scenes from popular books and movies straight onto her eyelids.


@picturresque
Yep, this is the girl who used makeup to transform into all the Sailor Moon characters! Check out her page for more creative themes including the four seasons or Rihanna’s badass alter ego.


@mimles
This Vancouver-based makeup artist is the queen of creepy special effects. From cutting open her face to becoming half a skeleton, her illusions are almost too real. Peep her work for some Halloween inspiration (if your stomach can handle it).

If you’re a big believer in astrology, you’ll love Star’s zodiac sign-inspired makeup looks. Challenge yourself to recreate one of them based on your sign!


NEW video💘 @julien_rol_official Face Chart recreation! Please go check out the tutorial, and check out Juliens other work! _____________________________ Julien was the person to teach me his tips and tricks to do my first ever facechart while in Paris with @makeupforeverus/@makeupforeverofficial! He is so incredibly kind and talented, and I was honored when he created this look just for me! I of course had to put that ish on my face, so this design is all him! Love you Julien!❤ ____________________________ USING: @tatcha Water Cream (to prep) @nyxcosmetics Total Control Foundation Drops in shade 02 | Primal Colors Eyeshadows in shades Hot Blue, Hot Red, and Hot Pink #makeupforever Flash Palette | AQUA XL Ink Liner in M-14, and AQUA XL Color Paints in shades M-20, M-82, & M-72 @meltcosmetics Love Sick & Dark Matter eyeshadows 💘💘💘
