Lara Wirth is a 16-year-old Australian body painter who utilizes some outstanding special effects makeup techniques in her work.

She posts her work though a popular Instagram page titled 'armageddonpainted' as well as a YouTube channel that demonstrates the intensive process behind the looks. In her videos she includes lists of products as well as further sources for inspiration and direction, making her a great teacher for amateur body painters.

Even though she is entirely self-taught, Lara Wirth's work looks ready to appear on a movie screen. Each Instagram shot appears on a black background, making the special effects makeup pop in contrast and draw full attention to the wonderfully creepy creations. Looks range from nature-inspired paintings, to underwater humanoid beings, to neon-colored demons.
