Painted by Julia Sieckmann, a makeup artist based in Hamburg-Altona, Germany, is a series of artistic portraits that uses a woman's face as a blank canvas. Although that might be the sentiment most makeup artists share when looking at a face, in this case the artist created actual abstract works of art. Like colorful tribal masks, a slew of hues cover the model's face in a mesmerizing way.

Model Jessica posed in front of photographer Viktoria Stutz's lens for the photo series titled Painted by Julia Sieckmann. Captured in studio, she was placed against a backdrop that mimics the style of her 'makeup.' In a way, it is as though Sieckmann wanted to camouflage her in an exotic manner. Unfortunately, these looks can't be replicated for an everyday outing.
