Never Ever Thought Cosmetics Will Look So Much Better on Paper Than on The Face (16 pics)

In her latest series “Make-up meets Chinese Art”, Malaysian experimental artist Red Hong Yi uses everyday makeup products to create paintings that reflect traditional Chinese attributes.

As the artist explains, “Chinese art requires a lot of precision and skill – one stroke can make a huge difference I felt that this is similar to how a woman carefully puts on her make-up.”
The project is set to celebrate the Chinese New Year, which lasts for 15 days, and will have a piece a day posted on Red Hong Yi’s Instagram account.
