Makeup is a lot more than simply product to a face; for many, it's a form of expression. For others, it's a safety net. Regardless, the importance of makeup is something that can't and shouldn't be minimized. There's true power in every eye shadow, every lipstick, and even every foundation.
Don't let anyone tell you differently, makeup is an art. And yes, some are a little more skilled at the art than others, but that's beside the point. From the art of blending to cut creases to outrageous contours, there's very little you can't do with cosmetics. You can make yourself look like a different person, or simply cover up those blemishes that you can't seem to make go away. The point is, makeup may be one of the most versatile tools out there.
And for those artists with skill level above the rest, abstract makeup artistry can create real-life optical illusions on the face. Take makeup artist Dain Yoon for instance. The makeup pro has become famous for creating some of the most unreal mirages we've just about ever seen. Her ability to astound fans with her expertise has made her one of the most Instagrammable MUAs on the internet.
