Tal Peleg is a 29-year-old makeup artist in Israel who creates teeny tiny masterpieces on her eyelids. And it's a shame she can't look herself in the face, because the impeccable detail and vibrant colors are truly a sight to behold. Most of her eye makeup designs feature scenes from popular animated movies, as well as musicals, and classic books like The Little Prince. Peleg tells Someecards:
I love to take my time with every design, to pay attention to every little detail and every line, so the process is quite long. It takes between 1.5 to 5 hours to create a piece, and it really depends on how complicated the design is, and if I plan ahead of improvise. The average time is about 3 hours.
Here are some of her lovely eye makeup creations:
1. Disney's Frozen
2. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
3. Moulin Rouge!
5. The Wizard of Oz
6. Mary Poppins
7. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
Peleg also says that her passion for makeup goes way, way back: "I used to play with makeup since I was a little child, and experiment on my little sisters... so makeup has always been a part of my life, and I always liked the more artistic side of it. I have worked as professional makeup artist for the last 9 years. Over time, especially in the last 3-4 years, my work has become more and more illustrative."
8. The Shining
9. The Moomins by Tove Jansson
10. Les Misérables
11. The Nightmare Before Christmas
12. Big Hero 6
13. The Phantom of the Opera
14. Pet Sematary by Stephen King
15. The Princess Bride
Peleg says that the piece she holds closest to her heart is that of a black cat playing with yarn (below):
First of all, because it was one of my most successful and popular designs. It's quite simple and not so detailed like my current works, but very original idea and that's why people really liked it. but the real reason is that it's inspired by my beloved cat Louis, who passed away since then... so it's very sentimental for me. This work is printed, framed and hanged in front of my working desk to always remind me of him.
