This makeup artist is recreating famous paintings and the outcome is incredible!
She is so talented!
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 was Lazaer's first post, inspired by Starry Night Over the Rhone by Vincent Van Gogh.
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.
The third instalment, based on Cézanne, Mont Sainte-Victoire with Large Pine was just as beautiful as the last.
It keeps getting better! In her fourth post she drew inspiration from Picasso's The Weeping Woman.
This time she drew inspiration from the gold and floral elements in Gustav Klimt's The Kiss and it looks amazing!
Her latest addition to the series is inspired by Degas, Two Dancers Entering the Stage. We can't wait to see what else she comes up with!
