Although most of us get irritated and disgusted by insects, insects are usually really fascinating. You might find it difficult to understand why certain people like bugs. However, if you study insects, you’ll get to know that they are truly interesting creatures. In fact, bugs play a significant, meaningful role in our ecosystem.
Duran Jay is a UK-based makeup artist who does incredibly attractive eye makeup. For these, she mostly derives inspiration from those that belong to the category of invertebrates such as exotic bugs and insects. On her Instagram account, you can find side-by-side comparisons of her absolutely stunning eye makeup and the insect in reference. So, take a look at some of her most breathtaking works below, and share your thoughts with us in the comments!
Duran Jay, who’s a huge bug enthusiast, states that she has been interested in bugs for many years. However, recently, she has begun to greatly appreciate the true diversity represented by insects. She states that we are used to be scared of insects from a young age. However, if we bother to observe, there’s so much beauty right in front of us.
Using makeup, Duran tries her best to present the beauty of gorgeous species of insects such as jewel beetles and butterflies. At the same time, she appreciates insects such as ants and silverfish, who aren’t that attractive and generally evoke negative responses. Duran has always found happiness from being creative with her own style. During the lockdown, she challenged herself by starting Entomakeup. She never expected so many people to be interested in her work. Also, she never thought that they’d receive such amazing responses!
