I’ve previously posted some stunning designs that were created on lips, but this makeup artist has created miniature artworks on eyelids. These beautiful works are inspired by famous painters, food and more.
Smoky eyes can be beautiful, but it’s hard to look unique if you’re pulling out the same makeup tricks over and over again. Perhaps it’s time to think more outside the box. Brisbane, Australia-based Georgina Ryland‘s collection of eyelid artworks, titled #MakeupForAnts, includes creations influenced by Van Gough’s ‘Starry Night’ painting and ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’ by Katsushika Hokusai.

“I started with a pun. Cat liner,” Ryland writes on Imgur. “Although ridiculously specialized and possibly the most useless application of my skill, I kept playing around.”
"Starry Night" by Van Gogh. Always fun to play with a little texture ✨ Using @jeffreestar @jeffreestarcosmetics Drug Lord, Blue Velvet, Abused and Breakfast at Tiffany's (via @makeupnetaustralia) @sugarpill Bulletproof, Buttercupcake, Tako @illamasqua Spirit Palette @katvondbeauty Trooper Tattoo Liner @inglot_australia Gel Liner 87 and 51 Body Sparkles @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Medium Brown @mehronaustralia Yellow Paradise Paint #georginaryland #makeupforants
The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai: my favourite piece of art that I have painted 5 or 6 times now – never this tiny though! I'll be playing around with little paints over the year – keep track of them through #makeupforants 😊 I used @jeffreestarcosmetics @jeffreestar Drug Lord, Blue Velvet and Abused from @makeupnetaustralia – first time using Drug Lord – how did I not have this guy earlier???! @katvondbeauty Monarch Palette, Trooper Tattoo Liner @sugarpill Tako, Bulletproof, Velocity @mehronmakeup Orange and Light Brown Paradise Paints @illamasqua Spirit Palette @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow in Medium Brown #georginaryland 🌊
