This makeup artist pays homage to female hip-hop artists on her face

If you ever thought makeup wasn’t an art form, this might make you reconsider.

Los Angeles based makeup artist Gama is not like the others. Gama posts her colorful, bold and sometimes breathtakingly intricate designs on TikTok and Instagram.

But we can tell Gama has been listening to the Billboard Hot 100 with her most recent looks.

She painted the single artwork from Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s “Savage” remix onto her face — it took her eight hours to complete.

The “Savage” remix cover includes the image of a horse waiting under a tree with a beehive. It’s standing near a gas station and a sign that reads “Welcome to Houston,” the hometown of the singer and rapper. Amidst the blue sky and mountain, is a swarm of bees and a cityscape in the distance. All of which Gama included in her face paint.

The artist also recreated Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj’s “Say So” remix single art. She gave a little more insight into the process with this one. First, she traced the outline of the artwork’s groovy, ’70s style lettering. Then she used a brush to paint in the colorful rainbow swirls.

Gama’s Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion makeup racked up 1.3 million TikTok views.

“I’ve never seen so much effort be put into one of these,” one TikTok user wrote.

“Take all the likes sis this is PURE TALENT,” another wrote.

“Whoa this is probably the best make up I’ve ever seen anyone do,” another said.

“OMG. How did you get it that PERFECT?” one person asked.

“Beyoncé and Megan shall and must see this,” another added.
