Just when we thought we had seen it all, done it all in terms of eye makeup, the new Trompe L'Oeil eye makeup trend made its way to our Instagram feeds. For the uninitiated, the Trompe L'Oeil is all about creating perspective bending designs or artwork so realistic that it could momentarily trick you into believing that the art is a real thing. While there already are quite a few artists on social platforms like Instagram who have been practicing this inspiring technique, there are a few in particular that have managed to stand out for their super impressive work.
Let us take a look at some of these artists and their work.
Stefania Atupe, a 16-year-old makeup artist from London, re-creates paintings of Monet and Vincent Van Gough on her eyelids. She uses drugstore products to create those precise designs. Atupe also revealed, in an interview that she uses the brushes in liquid liners to create sharp strokes. When asked about the time it takes, she said it can take her up to two hours per eye to complete a design.
Tal Peleg is a blogger and makeup artist from Israel who has earned a lot of admiration from people across the globe for her unique art. She uses watercolors and eyeshadows that are very pigmented and of good quality. Tal also said that she buys very thin paint brushes or nail brushes from art supply stores because makeup brands do not provide thin brushes. Her designs, which are usually inspired from fairy tales, emotions, food, movies, and so on, take about two-and-a-half hours to complete. What is interesting in her art is the fact she also uses it to raise awareness about important matters like adopting pets, anti-bullying and depression.
Giulianna Maria, a 19-year-old college sophomore who has taken up the hobby of applying Trompe L’Oeil makeup. She is self-taught and her designs mostly consist of fireworks, curly liners, veins, spider webs, snowflakes, and so on. Giulianna makes use of eyeshadows, eyeliners, liquid liners and a few craft store products. Her designs usually take about an hour-and-a-half to complete.
