Laura Jenkinson, a makeup artist and blogger from London, has become an internet sensation in her own right. She has gained quite an online following on her Instagram account because of her special brand of artistry.

The 26-year-old artist specializes in “lip art.” This means she draws cartoon characters on her chin and then uses her own lips and teeth to achieve the right facial expression for the cute characters.

It’s really one of a kind!

On an interview, Laura shared how she got started with her fascination for this art. “I’d seen loads of other fantastic make-up artists on Instagram and I wanted to do something similar.” And so she eventually began with her project “doing about one (character) a week.”

How does she do it? Laura revealed she just finds a picture “and then just hold it up to the mirror as a guide and draw straight onto my face.”

Here are some of the lip art photos she has shared on her online account:
