There are so many makeup artists on Instagram these days that it makes it very hard to keep an eye on all of them. However, there are some artists whose talent is so amazing that it makes them truly stand out of a crowd.
Meet Ida Rambraut, a 19 years old artist from Roros, Norway, who combines her love for art and history with incredible makeup skills using her own face as a canvas. She’s got almost 50K followers on Instagram and became quite a sensation in Norway. She’s even been invited to do the talking on the radio a couple of times.
How it all started
It all started when Ida was in 10th grade, she fell in love with makeup, and she’s been mastering her skills ever since – from theater makeup to facepaint to classic beauty makeup – and her talent speaks for itself. Ida has been drawing pretty much as long as she can remember, but never with makeup, let alone using her face as a canvas. When you look at her photos, it’s hard not to get fascinated with her work.
It might look like an easy-peasy job, but creating these masterpieces takes loads of time and money. But as you can see, the result is totally worth it. Ida admits that it usually takes up to six hours to create one piece. She never knows when the inspiration hits her. She never has a clear plan in her head, she just starts looking through the images on her phone and lets her imagination fly.
