Laurie Simmons Blurs Perception With Her 'How We See' Series

Laurie Simmons' 'How We See' image series is one part visually striking and one part disturbing thanks to eyeshadow art that makes viewers do a double take. The image series resembles a set of traditional model portraits at first glance but is revealed to be an illusion when examined closer.

What look like open eyes are actually eye lid illustrations that boast an intricate and incredibly realistic quality. Inspired by Anime eyeshadow art that is popular among YouTube makeup artists, this image series challenges the perception of its viewers and illustrates the true artistry exhibited by experts within the cosmetics field.

Laurie Simmons' work is eye-catching, shocking and even disturbing at times, thanks to its ultra-realistic quality that is almost too lifelike to believe.
