Social media, the birth place of unicorn makeup and penis eyeliner is constantly churning out innovative trends. Now, meme eye makeup is the latest creation blowing up our newsfeeds. (I couldn't even say that without busting into a giggle.) But yes, talented makeup junkies are drawing inspiration from viral memes, and are turning them into hilarious makeup looks.
Although we doubt you'll be wearing an image of the infamous "crying Kim" face on your eye lids to a wedding or date, these humorous recreations display serious artistry. As reported by Buzzfeed.com, makeup mavens are recreating everything from the confused Nick Young meme, to the classic Kermit sips tea meme, and even scenes from the viral "Hurt Bae" video. Each of them paying exquisite attention to details on such a small canvas. This trend goes far beyond, a bit of blending or a cut-crease shadows; these looks take patience and dedication, and undoubtedly the steadiest hands on earth. But beyond the talented artwork, what makes this trend so great is that it's fun. And at the end of the day, makeup is all about having fun. Your face is a canvas, and whether you want to rock a no-makeup makeup look or a full blown Picasso on your lids that's entirely your prerogative.
Even if you can't draw a Kermit on your eyes, these looks serve as some serious eye candy. Here are a few of our favorite picks to get you through that Monday slump.
