Did You Know That a Picasso looks better on skin anyway?
This artist helps us to skip our boring make-up routine
Beauty & Wellness 05 Feb 2020

Most of us would struggle to paint on a canvas, let alone our bodies, but Instagram star Sayumi literally paints masterpieces on her face. From Picasso to Klimt, all the most iconic works of art history have made an appearance on her visage. And, because we love her work so much, we’ve compiled a list of her favourite looks to provide you with some inspo for the next time you don’t know how to dress at your next art-themed party. 

 

When You Have Picasso On Your Mind…

How dreamy are these Picasso drawings?! Sayumi only uses black here, so for the adventurous among us, it should be possible with just an eyeliner pencil!

 

When You’re Feeling Like A Goddess

What better way to challenge your inner goddess than to paint art history’s most beloved female god on your face?! Sayumi’s rendition of Botticelli’s Birth of Venus is quite simply divine. 

 

When You Want To Be Kissed

Perhaps one of the most romantic paintings in art history, Gustav Klimt’s iconic Kiss is recognisable across the globe. Mixing things up a bit, Sayumi pairs the iconic gold painting with a statement orange eye, and we’re totally here for it.

 

When You Are Feeling Like Channelling Your Inner Frida

Who hasn’t been to a party full of a million girls with flowers in their hair and fake mono-brows on their faces? We totally love Frida, but we don’t always want to look like every other art girl in the room. So, how do we do it? Make like Sayumi and paint the art queen on your hand!

 

When You Feel Like Dancing

How dreamy is Sayumi’s rendition of Matisse’s dancers? A totally perfect look for the arty party girl.

 

When You’re Feeling Cubist

Picasso’s Demoiselles D’Avignon is perhaps one of the most celebrated works of modern art. Although it was controversial when first exhibited, with artists like Matisse and Braque disliking the work initially, they all went on to join the cubist revolution. This look is certainly suited for trailblazers. 

 

When You Feel Like You Deserve To Be Framed

Sometimes we just want to be centre of attention, and what better way to make people notice our beauty that to put a frame around our face? Sayumi makes sure all eyes are on her in this gorgeous look. 

 

When You’re Feeling Dreamy

Can you tell that Picasso is a fave of Sayumi? This colourful rendition is inspired by Picasso’s painting La Reve, which literally means “the dream” in French. And we can agree that this colour palette is certainly dreamy. 

 

When You’re Feeling Sci-Fi

We’re all familiar with Mona Lisa, but what would she look like under green fluorescent light?! Well, Sayumi showed us! A perfect look for art girls next Halloween!
