Perfecting the Art of Cartoon Cosmetics with @laurajenkinson

To see more lip-art creations from London-based makeup artist Laura Jenkinson, follow @laurajenkinson on Instagram.

With a little makeup, a lot of patience and a slight curl of the lip, Laura Jenkinson (@laurajenkinson) brings the most beloved cartoon characters to life on her face. From Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck to Nemo and Shrek, Laura has painted more than fifty cartoon masterpieces on her mouth and chin in the last year. She started this project on Instagram as a way to stand out as a makeup artist in the competitive beauty industry. “I knew I wanted to do something different, and equally something that would bring happiness to people,” she says. “If I can spend a couple of hours a day making at least a handful of people smile—then why not?”

Now with a growing list of followers, Laura gets constant encouragement and inspiration from her fans. “My creations now mainly come from people’s requests and their ideas. I generally don’t have many uninspired days anymore.”

:D
