Shocking Lip Makeup Looks Like a Hungry Eye

You might be thinking, “Is that an eye with some sort of trippy contact lens or lips with some clever makeup?” If you guessed the latter, you'd be correct! Swedish makeup enthusiast Sandra Holmbom, aka psychosandra, created this wildly illusionary look for her lips, mimicking an eye.

From the intricately designed iris to the delicately applied eyelashes, the makeup artist has meticulously created a third eye on her face in a most creative and unexpected way. The slight part in her mouth adds to the mind-boggling effect that causes one to do double-take. While the artist has created a visually stunning effect with great attention to detail, Holmbom admits that she just wanted to do something weird and adds, “Pretty, it's not, but I had fun anyway.”
