This Makeup Artist Is 'Gramming A New, Over-The-Top Look Every Day For A Year


For artists and creatives, the internet is the perfect way to show off your skill. Uploading photos to  Instagram takes almost no time but exposes your work to thousands. If you're diligent and wildly imaginative, opportunity is bound to come knocking on your door.

Adrienne Edwards, 21, is a perfect example of the internet's power. During the day she's a cheer coach in her home state of Utah, but by night she posts amateur makeup looks so beautiful they've already won her attention from media outlets like Cosmopolitan. Remember “galaxy freckles”? That was all Edwards.

Remember “galaxy freckles”? That was all Edwards.

The space-age freckles were a part of Edwards' ongoing 365 Days Of Makeup project, in which she challenges herself to complete a totally unique cosmetic look every single day. Sometimes, she'll even post tutorial to her YouTube channel.

Edwards, who's spent time as both a MAC Cosmetics employee and — somewhat incredibly — playing a Disney character, has enough sparkle and pep to pull off everything from zombie faces to mermaid style.

But softer, sweeter looks aren't off limits.

Edwards has never met an aquatic theme she didn't love.

Or if there's a monster lurking inside you?

Really, Edwards' greatest gift is her imagination. We can't wait to see the next 172 days.

This makeup artist is a real talent.
