The Instagram MUA using makeup to make literal art

There’s a difference between being good at makeup and being good at makeup. And if you don’t quite know the difference, let us introduce you to Anna Matveyeva.

Part makeup maestro, full artist, her skills with cosmetics will make you regret that feeling of pride you experienced this morning when you got your brows to almost match.

Though her classic cat eye and red lip are envy-inducing, it’s her full-blown makeup-as-art looks that really take the cake. Queen of using the entire face to her advantage, the Ukrainian artist's looks feature eyeliner drawn on as lightning bolts, dripping lip-gloss, lit only by the neon eyeshadow-painted backdrop of her cheekbones.

Here’s a selection of some of our favourite looks.
