A makeup artist’s canvas is the face, especially so for Laura Jenkinson. The London-based makeup artist has been drawing delightful cartoon characters around her mouth cleverly integrating her teeth and lips into the portraits.
Speaking about her methods, the 25-year old artist says, “I find a picture and then just hold it up to the mirror as a guide and draw straight onto my face – it’s easier than you think!. Ironically, drawing onto someone else is more difficult – I think it’s more straightforward drawing onto my own face.”
“I use theatrical make-up normally, but I occasionally use lipstick if I need to get the exact shade of something,” she added.
