The photo series aptly titled Universe by Julia Sieckmann, a makeup artist since 2005 based in Hamburg-Altona, Germany, showcases some very cosmic beauty looks. Using the face like a blank canvas, the artist creates celestial paintings using nothing more than cosmetics. Mask-like, the looks are intensely saturated and visually striking for it.

Shot and retouched by photographer Viktoria Stutz, the photo series Universe by Julia Sieckmann is darkly vibrant, just as space really is. The captures embody an exploration of the intergalactic unknown as much as it does the artistic possibilities of makeup. The blending of powders and purposeful glossy spills creates works of art that are full of color and texture.

Universe by Julia Sieckmann stars model Anna Carla Winkes. She exudes a calm presence in the midst of heavenly chaos.
