LONDON — Some works of art are so impressive, the very idea of trying to emulate them is intimidating.

But a London-based aspiring makeup artist has done a pretty incredible job of paying tribute to some of her favorite paintings.

"I created the looks using Nyx colorful liners as well as some eye shadows I had lying around at home," Atupe told Mashable.

Check out the detailed creations below:

She says that the idea to recreate the paintings came to her after she'd been experimenting with peacock and zebra print eye makeup looks.

"When I posted the peacock design onto twitter, a girl actually messaged me and said that it reminded her of a Van Gogh piece, and since I absolutely love Van Gogh I decided I would try out Starry Night," she continued.

"I then just sat down and spent a good hour and a half just recreating the look, slowly outlining it and developing the colors! It took really long as there's so many different colors, and I really wanted to try get all the same colors and patterns as in the original painting," Atupe continued.
