Meet Lexie Lazear, the California-based makeup artist who is creating amazing works of art using her face as a canvas. With almost 20 years experience as a makeup artist, it's no wonder her recreation of famous paintings such as The Weeping Woman by Pablo Picasso (not to mention her original pieces) are nothing short of breathtaking.

In an interview with Buzzfeed she explained why makeup application truly is an art form. "[Makeup is] also just paint, and the face can be a canvas.” So it's no surprise that after her first post which drew inspiration from Van Gogh's famous painting, Starry Night Over the Rhone, her friends and family encouraged her to do an entire series based on other famous artworks.

This post is based on Renoir's Two Sisters (On the Terrace). “I think my favorite 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 makeup,” said the talented makeup artist.
