18 Meme-Based Makeup Looks You Must See Now

Welcome to the internet. Here, we have memes. We have pictures of people wearing makeup. We have memes about makeup. And now, I guess, we have makeup in the form of memes. And that’s about it!

Confused as to what I mean, exactly? Check out this:

See? Now, I have to say that, conceptually, I find these meme makeup looks to be vaguely offensive.  There is something so viscerally dissatisfying about memes manifesting themselves IRL–like, with a few rare exceptions, any physical iteration of Kermit or Arthur will only ever convey a shadow of the humor and relatablity it carries online. Not everything that you see on your computer screen needs a live-action remake, you know?

Still, no matter how you may feel about meme-based makeup looks as, like, an overall concept, it is impossible to deny that these makeup artists are absurdly talented, and that many of these looks are flawlessly done, and sometimes very clever in their execution. So, who am I to judge? I certainly can’t draw Evil Kermit on my eyelids. So, check out these meme-based makeup looks here:
