With Halloween right around the corner, costumey makeup has been top-of-mind.
If you do any kind of online search for the MOST spectacular makeup ideas, you can’t help but trip over the work of Israeli artist Tal Peleg.
Her skill, attention to detail, and imagination are unbelievable. Her artwork is so beautiful that it seems a pity her chosen medium is makeup; ultimately her masterpieces get washed away with cotton-balls and face-soap.
She believes however, that “makeup is an amazing form of art, and I use it in order to make my eye tell a story.” Adapting her visions to each idea she wants to bring to life, Peleg reveals that she doesn’t “just paint on the eye”, but instead tries “to use the shape of the eye and its natural curves as part of the illustration in a creative way.”
This is just a showcase a peek of her talent, please enjoy some of her Halloween inspired eye pieces. (She is so talented that it was hard to even curate this selection.)
You’ve got your pop-culture influenced eyes:
Apparently Tal and I have similar taste; Tim Burton, Stephen King, and Breaking Bad!
Tal is clearly very cultured, with influences from Edgar Allen Poe’s famous poem “The Raven”.
Some general Halloween-themed pieces:
And then these are really cool — but tickle the back of my brain as potentially referencing movies, books, or art — I just can’t place them. (Can you?)
Hope you enjoyed these, and don’t be surprised if more seasonal collections of Tal Peleg’s work pop-up here. (I love it!)
