Makeup artist turns her body into stunning Hogwarts mural

Harry Potter has inspired an astronomical amount of amazing fanart—and now we can add body painting to the list.

Makeup artist Georgina Ryland has an Instagram account full of interesting makeup ideas and self-drawn body paint, including some geeky offerings like this awesome Princess Mononoke body art and Pokémon eye makeup.

Her latest big project was a painting of Hogwarts at night, drawn on her own chest.

The Hogwarts art took five hours to draw, and you can watch the process unfold in this timelapse video.

If you’re interested in creative makeup art, Georgina Ryland seems like an ideal person to follow on Instagram. Just don’t expect to learn from her videos like a simple makeup tutorial. This kind of work takes serious expertise.
