This shot of MAC lipstick tubes features crystals instead of the actual makeup. It is not a surprise that the beauty fans on pinterest and instagram have been pinning and reposting this picture
This art work was created by a Pakistani artist Sara Shakeel
Sara is a dentist turned collage artist. She now has 94,000 followers on Instagram. The original picture was taken by the make up artist – Lalita Coraje.
Here is what she had posted
. . . Before i say anything the rightful photographer should be liked first she is tagged.. i just wonder where did all the hate come from…. Instagram deleted this picture of mine cause all thanks to a few who couldn't stand my picture being shared ….cause photoshop aint right? Why all the hate? Firstly let me come clear . 1. I am a COLLAGE ARTIST i make art out of art. . 2. I take pictures out of flicker, tumbler & pinterest i google them up and sadly most of them dont show the real owners therefore i sadly make an art and wait for the rightful owner. Till than i make sure that people know i am a COLLAGE ARTIST. Please google what that means!! If collage art was such a crime… than my.my…. how many artists would go down….. please get your facts straight. Please 🙏 . 3. Yes i am bad with photoshop… infact i suck at it… happy? I am a dentist by profession , i never took this way of life just because i wanted to be FAMOUS. No i did this because i was going through a lot in life and editing …. cut paste a picture would make me the happiest girl on gods earth……. do you have a problem with me being happy? If i take a picture make something new out of it…. and it makes a few 100 happy too…. do you guys get so unhappy about it? . . 4th… from now onwards i would actually say i am less of a collage artist… more of a CLEVER ARTIST. Yes i have a million dollar idea i make art out of it…. the art sucks … it has a few glitches but guess what!!! People get the message… they love it…. why would you care if my photoshop was not on point….😐😳😳😳 Some of you guys exhaust me…. dont follow me or like me if you cant appreciate…. or like my work. I was happy with a few 100 followers i swear i was…. i need good vibes in my life… not this… . . All of the pictures that you see is my art. My imagination … my creativity! Respect it… and ill respect you too. Or please leave…. dont make me unhappy. I beg of you guys 🙏🙏🙏🙏 . . #collage #art #peace #love #happiness #nofame #nolove #simple #creativity #edit #lipsticks #crystal #whyjealous #jealous #nohate #stophate #happiness #collageart #graphic #graphicdesign #digitalpainting
And here is the original picture
Sara likes to be called an “image manipulator and collage artist” She likes to take photographs and often swaps in objects (like—hello—crystals) in place of lipstick, a lollipop “head,” or the liquid in a coffee cup, etc.
In her own words
“I want people to connect to their emotions, their inner child. I’m very fascinated by [them] and how each cut and polishing can bring out a new kind of color symmetry or shine”
She chose the MAC lipstick shot specifically as she could not afford to buy the entire collection so this was her way of paying tribute.
Since the time she posted this picture, the reaction to her work has been very encouraging
