Beauty is going viral by the day to different dimensions as ‘’The self-taught Instagram’ [MUA] is currently going viral in an eye makeup artistry. Makeup artist Jasmine Ahumada, is making waves right now for her otherworldly creations that feature actual insects.
Did I just hear insects? Yeah, that is just it! I’ll let that sink in for a minute. Just like my post on squirmy maggots on the first time I saw people buying and eating the roasted ones, Ahumada’s statement is similar like mine, hear her:
Let it be known: ”I am not someone who is easily grossed out. Blood, gore, and grime — no sweat. But, the one thing I cannot and will not fuck with is bugs. Just the mere thought of insects (aside from cute little ladybugs, the only exception) sends shivers down my spine and elicits that uneasy feeling most people experience when coming into contact with creepy crawlers. Makeup artist Jasmine Ahumada however, does not fall into this category of people”.
She makes use of these dead bugs; [grasshoppers, beetles, moths, etc] and glues them on as an accent to her eye makeup. She keeps them clean “Place a barrier between the skin and bug,” she told Popsugar that she usually uses thick lash glue or even gems for this. But it is so surprising that even as she uses these life insects, she has never once hurt or killed an insect in the process. She rather hunts for dead ones or get some at the Petco; a where they store and sells them as food for reptiles.
This is indeed a modern day beauty when anything can be used to achieve beauty success. But let me ask, if the insects mistakenly enters the eyes of the person it is used on, won’t it result to eye problem? I think it should be done with utmost carefulness so we don’t get hurt.
