Makeup Artist Transforms Her Face into Famous Artworks

Klimt faceThis from Lost in E Minor --

California-based artist Lexie Lazear transforms her face into works of art with the power of makeup.She was inspired to turn her face into famous paintings, thanks to her love of art. Her intricate designs pay homage to famous painters such as Gustav Klimt, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent Van Gogh.

“I love art, so I started with pieces that have always spoken to me, and plan to keep going until I’m struck by a new inspiration,” Lazear told Buzzfeed. When she designs her makeup, the artist doesn’t just ‘copy and paste’ the iconic artworks onto her face. Instead, she reinterprets and reimagines them into new, unique looks.  “I think that makeup is an art,” she said.  “Art is expression, and we’re all unique, looking for ways to express that.”
