From vintage works of art to modern day interpretations, there’s no denying that the female form has been an artist’s source of inspiration for centuries. Here are 8 breathtaking portraits to inspire your next makeup look.
Growing up with a keen fascination for three-dimensional art, Mike Dargas is an absolute master at hyper-realistic interpretations of faces. He initially began as a carpenter, making sculptures out of wood and metal. But his passion for 3D art spilt into his painting and work as a tattooist. Some of his current portraits feature close-up images of men and women, with molten gold, honey, caramel and dark chocolate dripping down their faces. “Fade to Black” features a beautiful woman sensually cupping her face with her hands, with her decadent apple red lips as the centre of focus. Only her face and hands are in the light, while her back is enveloped by darkness.
