Instagram is jam-packed with makeup artists and beauty vloggers that have a deft hand with makeup brushes and beauty techniques. While some of us are struggling to put on a straight line of eyeliner while standing half an inch from the bathroom mirror, others are creating literal masterpieces on their faces, using eyeshadow and liquid lipstick like artists use paint and watercolors. That's where Lipartist Audrey Mua comes in, a French certified makeup artist living in Barcelona and sharing her masterpieces with the world via her Instagram account. She creates cruelty-free content that spans across all sorts of aesthetics and themes — the one common factor connecting her ideas is that they're eye-poppingly creative.
A quick scroll through her feed shows you a series of different examples. There are the geometric and abstract eye looks, that feature splattered pigment across the eyelids (and some in the eyebrow and lashes,) with metallic cut-outs decorating the lids. There are mod, '60s-inspired lips that have a nude stripe running down the middle, and holographic goo eyes. Then there's the Hey Arnold! lip art that gets you all nostalgic for Saturday morning cartoons, and a life-like drawing of the San Francisco bridge on someone's lips, and you start realizing Audrey is a wizard when it comes to her makeup tool box. To see some of her best and most jaw dropping work, look below.
