Artist Transforms Her Eyelids into Paintings Inspired by Movies, Musicals, and Books

Makeup artist Tal Peleg designs detailed paintings on an unusual canvas: her upper eyelid. Using this part of her face–along with her eyebrows, lashes, waterline, and the surrounding area–Peleg recreates scenes from iconic movies, musicals, and books. For her depiction of Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, Peleg transformed her eyebrow into a tree that’s blossoming with vibrant green leaves. As for Disney’s Frozen, the artist succeeded in painting Elsa standing atop a snowy mountain, complete with creative icy touches that make for a delightful effect.

“Makeup can be so much more than meets the eye,” quips the eyelid painter. You can follow Peleg on Facebook and Instagram to see what cinematic or literary work she breathes new life into next.
