This Artist Uses Her Face As A Canvas

According to Lana van den Heuvel, a makeup artist and photographer: “Ever since I was a kid, I have loved makeup and face painting. It took a pandemic actually to start doing it myself. On average, I spend between 60 and 90 minutes per look, and I find it very therapeutic. It gives me a chance to not think about everything that is going on and clear my mind.

I mainly use water-based paint, but sometimes I change things up and use makeup and glitter. People always ask me whether my skin doesn’t feel dry or if my skin doesn’t react to the many paintings I do; it does not. Make sure to moisturize and not wear the paintings for too long at a time.

I hope you enjoy them, please let me know what you think!”
