Artist creates stunning pop culture landscapes using only eye makeup

While out-of-the-box makeup tutorials are nothing new, the pop culture masterpieces being created by visual artist Tal Peleg are in a league of their own.

Referencing everything from Disney films to cult classic like 'The Shining,' Peleg uses makeup to re-imagine intricate landscapes reflecting modern media.

Equipped with nothing but makeup, a lot of creativity, and a seriously steady hand, the Israeli visual artist has gained over 260,000 followers on Instagram and almost half a million on Facebook for her unique depictions.

Explaining her creative process more in detail, Peleg told Bored Panda, "Inspiration is all around me, and I give my own unique artistic interpetation using makeup. It can be inspired by emotions, movies, fairytales, animals, food, important social matter and more. I create all the eye-art on my own eye, and I use mostly eyeshadows, eyeliners and watercolors, and of course – super tiny brushes. It takes hours of work, and lots of patience, but I really enjoy every moment of the process!"
