Creative Eye Makeup Illustrations by Tal Peleg

Israeli makeup artist Tal Peleg, aka Scarlet Moon, uses eyeshadow and eyeliner to do more than simply shade in her eyelids. Instead, the creative makeup genius turns eyelids into her own personal canvas for clever mini paintings. She takes the small patch of skin that surrounds the eye and transforms it into charming little scenes, utilizing just about every element of area including the eye itself.

Peleg works around the curves of the eyelid and the sharp, angular shape of the eyebrows, cleverly framing and completing each tiny work of art. In one work, the artist even uses the eyebrow to represent the long brushed back hair of a princess kneeling down to kiss a frog. In another piece, she makes use of a green iris as a giant pea underneath numerous mattresses to represent The Princess and the Pea.
