Laura Jenkins is a London based brilliant makeup artist who brings various cartoon characters to life on her own face or to be more precise on her mouth. This is what happens when you have a makeup artist who is also a true cartoon enthusiast and has kept her inner child alive.
Leave her alone with her makeup for just enough time and it is inevitable that at some point she’ll decide to address her nerdiness and love towards her favorite cartoon characters.
Being the makeup artist, Lara naturally decided that her face will make the perfect canvas. Not everybody was thrilled with her work and some even called it weird accusing her of destroying their childhood memories and making it “too s**ual” but in my opinion, that’s on them and probably has something to do with spending too much time online on adult sites.
I find Laura’s work really interesting and witty and especially the way her teeth perfectly fit and make for the cartoon character’s teeth. It’s simply adorable. What do you think?
Here are 20 of my personal favorites.
Stitch was depicted as a destructive and bad-tempered character that wasn’t supposed to be liked by many people except Lilo, but somehow he became one of Disney’s all-time favorites.
Mike Wazowski, why the long face?
Taz, the ferocious albeit dim-witted omnivore with a notoriously short temper and little patience has never looked cuter. Also, I have to commend his dentist, the man is obviously a genius.
Ehh, what’s up, doc?
Hakuna Matata, guys! Lauren says this one took her all day to make, but it was totally worth it.
Eric is everybody’s favorite politically incorrect, selfish, fat jerk and we simply love to hate him.
This one’s done so well, you can hardly tell where her top lip begins and ends. One of her best works in my opinion.
12The Genie from the Aladdin
The artist wrote on her Facebook profile that this one was created in memory of Robin Williams. And the same image was captured on Instagram: “But oh, to be free. To be my own master. Such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world” ❤️
11Popeye the Sailor
Even today when I once in a blue moon make a healthy choice and pick spinach instead of the hamburgers, just like Popeye the Sailor would like, I feel so proud of myself.
Hakuna Matata, once more!
Sebastian, the singing red Jamaican was developed solely for the purposes of the movie. He didn’t exist it the original Hans Christian Andersen story.
8The Powerpuff Girls
For those of you that didn’t watch the Cartoon Network back in the ’90s, the Powerpuff Girls (Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup) were created by Professor Utonium in an attempt “to create the perfect little girls” using a mixture of”sugar, spice, and everything nice”.
7Monkey With a Banana
I’m loving the tongue sticking out detail. So cute!
4Dory From Finding Nemo
Just keep swimming!
Stewie is the youngest member of the Griffin family and he is obsessed with violence and matricide and is absolutely adorable.
Everybody’s favorite ogre, even cuter than usually.
