If Picasso Was a Makeup Artist, He'd Approve of These Eye Shadow Designs

For some women, wearing makeup is about covering imperfections and improving their appearance. For others, makeup goes way beyond putting on a pretty face. Makeup artists are some of the most creative people out there, and most are experienced enough to do more than just glamorous makeup looks.

Makeup can completely transform your look and you don't have to put it on your entire face to make a statement. Eye shadow has come a long way from your basic neutral shades. In fact, if Picasso was alive today, I'm positive he would think these eye shadow designs are true works of art.
