One artist is making most people’s biggest fear into a new make-up trend.
A make-up artist based out of California is creating designs on her models, using real bugs. The make-up artist, Jasmine, is using bugs such as butterflies, spiders, worms, and crickets to create one-of-a-kind make-up looks.
For her models’s sake, Jasmine only uses dead bugs. She also probably does this because some of the insects she works with are dangerous species.
She calls this new artwork The Insect Eyes Art Series, which was launched in November. She uses her Instagram – ButterlyJasmine49 – to release new looks.
She continuously expresses to her follows that she has the “Utmost respect” for the creatures she uses. She also said, in a statement: “I understand if this is gross to you or you have a hard time understanding this type of art, but this is a bi-product of MY creativity. Commentators that choose to bully will not be tolerated.”
