Fine Art Makeup: Dali's "Galatea of the Spheres"


I've long been a fan of Dali and wanted to create a makeup look based on his work, but he's a tough nut to crack. Since he created surrealist works based on dreamscapes and symbolism, a lot of the imagery in his paintings is very literal and I've struggled to come up with a way to translate that to the face without being too literal. So, this is my first foray into using some of his imagery. Not quite as ambitious as I'd imagined, but it's a start!
