This Artist Took Body Painting To A Whole New Level With A Hogwarts Mural

Instagram has introduced us to all kinds of art — opal nails, hidden rainbow hair, Ouija board makeup, crystal lips, etc. Wherever there’s makeup and an iPhone, there’s innovation. 

However, none of this art has really tapped into our ‘Harry Potter’ obsession thoroughly enough (although Harry Potter nails were a valiant effort). 

One woman and rising YouTube star recently caught our attention though with possibly the highest form of art. 

Georgina Ryland, a makeup artist and body painter from Brisbane, Australia, is wowing the Internet with this stunning Hogwarts body mural. 

The look, which took roughly five hours to complete, required body paint, foundation, eye shadow, tattoo liner, and liquid lipstick.

To see more time lapses of Ryland’s incredible work, you can check out her YouTube channel.  

She also documents her work on Instagram. As it turns out, her talents extend well beyond ‘Harry Potter’ themes, although her Hogwarts look is certainly becoming Instafamous.

Which Job Would You Get After Graduating From Hogwarts?

Sure, we spent most of our childhoods (and all of our adult lives) wishing and waiting, hoping that our Hogwarts letters would arrive in the mail. And some of us even wondered about what houses we’d be sorted into (luckily, Pottermore cleared that up for us eventually). But beyond that, we didn’t think too much about the logistics of our potential wizarding lives. 

Hogwarts sounds amazing, when you’re not in mortal danger, but graduation and adulthood descend upon wizards as well. What would we do? Sadly, wizards still work 9-to-5 jobs, it seems.

So, time to find out what our dose of “real life” after graduation would have been like in a fictional world:
