Makeup Artist Paints Her Chin and Mouth to Look Like Cartoon Characters

While we might often dismiss the chin in our daily beauty routine, London-based makeup artist Laura Jenkinson highlights hers in a humorous tribute to cartoon personalities. She paints characters from Disney movies, Looney Tunes, South Park, and more onto her chin, lips, and the skin above them. This cleverly transforms Jenkinson's mouth into a figure's over-sized mouth, and when she moves her lips it looks like the character is talking.

The makeup artist is skilled at applying her colorful cosmetics; she can make her human lips appear like they're totally natural on these characters. To add to the believably, she'll also imitate their grin or teeth. While some have a full set of pearly whites, others only have a couple of front chompers. Jenkinson will curl her lips just so to hide her real teeth, and in a case like Bugs Bunny, expose her fake ones.

You can follow Jenkinson on Instagram to see all of her quirky characters that are sure to make you smile.
