For most of us regular Janes, makeup is just a fun way to feel extra-ready to meet the day.

When I reach for my makeup bag, I’m just covering blemishes, amping up my lashes, maybe putting a little color in my lips  especially if I have my homemade lip gloss on hand!

Mostly, it’s a pretty low-key process that helps me feel pulled-together.

But for some folks, makeup is more of an art form. It’s not about gently elevating your look with a little DIY enhancement, it’s about creating a magical illusion. German artist Svenja Jödicke knows more about this than most.

Jödicke, who also goes by the online handle Pixiecold, is a talented watercolorist who creates beautiful paintings and illustrations that are available for purchase on Etsy, and viewable on Instagram.

But in addition to her more traditional work, Jödicke also uses her own face as a canvas for truly unique and beautiful eye makeup designs.

Her otherworldly designs offer a dramatic view into just how creative makeup can be in the right hands!
