14 Famous Makeup Trends: 1930s to Now

While they may not be considered the most classic of beauty looks, the mind-blowing creations by Andrea Reed are definitely works of art in their own right.

Under the Instagram name GreyGirlBeauty, the Canadian makeup artist creates and posts lip art masterpieces that she paints on herself using only fine tip brushes and a hand mirror.

Reed uses her lips as a canvas, painting intricate designs with tiny, layered strokes to give off a multi-dimentional look.

While she does create original patterns, her most popular posts thus far have been takes on classic images, such as Kastsushika Hokusai's famous painting, Great Wave Off Kanagawa.

Check out more of her off-the-wall creations below:

#LipArt to match the @paperself lashes from my last pic. Black line work is drawn with the @katvondbeauty Tattoo Liner in 'Trooper' Lip base is the @sigmabeauty 'Lose the Halo' lip concealer and @anastasiabeverlyhills Liquid Lipstick in 'Milkshake'. @thekatvond @katvondbeauty
Floral #Lipart Using @anastasiabeverlyhills Liquid Lipsticks in Milkshake, Party Pink, Bambi, Carina, Retro Coral, and Vintage. The green leaves and white highlights are from the @makeupforeverofficial Flash Palette. Sorry I can't remember which brushes I used as this is an old old old lipart that I never posted. Two reasons why: 1. I didn't have enough light when I took the photo (I've since learned how to brighten the image while keeping the colours true to real life) It's definately not perfect but oh well 😚 2. Literally while I was finishing up this photo months back, I checked my IG and saw that @sarahmcgbeauty had posted her own floral lipart. I know it seems petty but I didn't want people thinking I was copying herπŸ˜‚ Sarah's is amazing I think I was intimidated a bit too. Anyway I kinda forgot about it but I'm happy I revisited.
