Amazing Optical Illusions Body Paintings by Sarah Murphy
My name is Sarah Murphy, I’m a French makeup/bodypaint/art enthusiast and I started doing makeups back in 2017, on one very hot summer night where I decided it’d be fun to turn into Scar from the Lion King. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea lol. That was my first facepaint and in all honesty it wasn’t very good but every now and then I share the picture along with a newer one, to show people it’s possible to improve your skills, with hard work and practice!
Ever since I have been challenging myself with all kinds of makeup styles: from bodypaint to optical illusions, celebrity transformations, beauty makeups, SFX and more…
My love for makeup dates back to when as a child I would sit on my mom’s bed every morning and watch her do her morning makeup routine. All the color combinations on the palettes, the textures and smells fascinated me and triggered something that later on would become an obsession and something I want to do for a living.
I am inspired by everything and anything, from art itself, music, nature, animals to food but also my own dreams and nightmares, books, light, textures, fabrics and I would like to help eventually other artists grow and get known for their talent. There are so many incredibly creative and gifted people out there but it’s very hard to make a name on social media… My goal is to become big enough so I can open a makeup/bodypaint school, create my own line of products and have a fair online platform where people can learn art and share their wonderful work with the world without relying on a very stressful algorithm!
My artist’s name is Sarah Magic Makeup and slogan is “You Can Be Anything”, which goes beyond transforming through makeup. By it I mean you can be whoever you want to be if you set your mind to it.
