After Being Diagnosed With A Brain Tumor, This Makeup Artist Started Creating Full Blown Masterpieces On Her Lips

If you’re one of the millions that mentions Selena Quintanilla’s name at least once a day — this makeup artist just created a way for everyone to know how much you truly adore Selena without saying a word.

A 25-year-old makeup artist from Sydney, Australia just created the most stunning tribute to Selena.

While some of us can’t even outline our lips, this makeup artist drew the “Amor Prohibido” album art by hand on ??her?? lips??. And it’s so detailed!

Meet Jazmina Daniel, the mastermind behind this insane lip artwork.


How flawless is she?!

Her personal story is as incredible as her artistry. Last year she told ABC News that she became a makeup artist to relieve stress after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.

“In 2006 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which forced me to leave school,” Jazmina said to ABC News. “I spent most of my days inside and focused on art for happiness. From canvases I began working on my own face, which then led to doing a few makeup courses during the time I was unwell and working then as a makeup artist.

“After that I became unwell again and had to have surgery to remove my tumor, and it was shortly after that I started to get creative with my lips instead of just glamour makeup,” she added.

Lip art brings me happiness. I find joy in it and it definitely is an amazing stress reliever,” she told ABC News.


And with a tiny palette like the one you see below, she creates her works of art.

How cute is my little Palette ring that I got?! ?? I got it from EBay! ?

Warning: You’re about to be blown away…

The outcome of her go-to stress reliever is insane! She’s mastered how to draw everything on her lips from “Beauty And The Beast”…

I’d love to wear this to Disneyland.

To “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”…


So classy and perfect.

And she even recreated a masterpiece of Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement photos.

How long does this take?! Where does she wear this to? Is it kiss-proof? So many questions!

Her artwork is seriously an optical illusion.

How does she do it?!

Here’s a collage of her most popular creations:

We wonder how long it takes to create this magical beauty.

And here’s one more look at her Selena lip because it’s so ?.

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

AOC’s Fans Took Part In An Amazing Meme Campaign To Celebrate Her Bday And It Will Humble You

Talk about a take back.

Yesterday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her 31st birthday, and to pay tribute to her, some of her biggest fans used the congresswoman’s signature looks and iconic words. The result was a mass of Tik Tok and Twitter makeup tutorials set to a mashup of Kendrick Lamar’s 2017 track “Humble.” AOC’s recent spack down of Representative Ted Yoho, who allegedly called the congresswoman a “crazy,” “disgusting” “f*cking b*tch” also made an appearance.

In an ode to AOC’s iconic takedown of Representative Ted Yoho this past July, users donned amazing lip colors and AOC’s finest words.

The AOC Birthday celebration meme saw users do their makeup and style their hair while mouthing a speech AOC gave this past July. Some of the videos featured facts about AOC and her accomplishments in office.

“I am here because I have to show my parents that I am their daughter and that they did not raise me to accept abuse from men,” the user’s mouth while the audio clip of AOC plays.

Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez even took part in the trend.

Earlier this summer, Rep. AOC admonished Rep. Ted Yoho on the House floor after he called her a “f*cking b*tch.”

According to reports, the confrontation occurred when the two members of Congress were passing each other on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Rep. Yoho allegedly confronted AOC and accused her of being “disgusting.” This occurred after she made comments that New York’s spike in crime had been caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Rep. AOC rebuked Yoho for his lack of apology at the time on the house floor soon after.

“It is cultural. It is a culture of lack of impunity, of accepting violence and violent language against women, an entire structure of power that supports that,” AOC said before adding “Mr. Yoho mentioned that he has a wife and two daughters – I am two years younger than Mr. Yoho’s youngest daughter. I am someone’s daughter, too. My father, thankfully, is not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter. My mother got to see Mr. Yoho’s disrespect.”
