eyemazing makeup art

It was late night when I stumbled across the
mind-blowing counting sheep makeup above
and I became suddenly awakened yearning to
ferret out everything about it and its gifted author:
I was about to enter the otherworldly realm of Tal Peleg.

'yin and yang'
'the crow'
Peleg, a passionate makeup artist, designer and
blogger based in Israel, pushes the boundaries of
her art with jaw-dropping creations: at ease with
every kind of products, techniques and trends, she
unleashes her creativity through beauty and fashion
makeup as well as devising unique effects and
characters or working for bridal parties and events.

'princess and the pea'
'princess and the frog'
'the little mermaid'
She can be conceptual or easy, magnificent or bizarre,
opulent or petty, basic or extremely detailed yet her work
never goes unnoticed. ”Beauty is everything you look
at with love” her byword reads and the magic of folk and
fairy tales and her childhood main readings - among
which the poems of Edgar Allan Poe who's depicted
with a crow on his shoulder and Lenore's grave in the
background - go together with her own rendition of
Disney movie characters, the Moomins, fluffy cats,
fantasy creatures and personal references.

'Nils and the wild geese'
Tal's fairy tale-inspired series is obviously the most
easy on the eye but we must consider that each one
of her artworks usually needs 3 to 4 hours to be done
yet the sheer artistry in her drawing makes us see
makeup not simply as the ability to turn a glance or
a face divine but as the action of an artist who 
performs the transformation in a class of her own.
