The 'Make Up' portrait series by artist Diego Beyro features intense face makeup looks that are boldly in-your-face.

Using deep gem-toned colors on the lips and eyes, the artist leaves the rest of the images completely black and white, which has the effect of making the almost clownish makeup stand out even more. Packing on the product with absolutely no blending or shading, the artist could be using these works as a hint to ladies who wear too much makeup, demonstrating that more doesn’t necessarily mean better. The rimmed eyes rimmed have a devil-may-care attitude, challenging the viewer to see the beauty behind the façade.

The popping hits of saturated color are reminiscent of the pop art style, making this portrait series of face makeup looks perfect for the modern Andy Warhol fan.
