Eye makeup looks inspired by famous paintings will blow your mind

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

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

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.
