Canadian makeup artist Bean Dawson takes a step out of the usual beauty looks and creates a range of “creative” looks on her Instagram.

“Each day is different. Today, I’ll make a headpiece out of teddy bears, tomorrow I’ll turn my face into Candyland,” she tells PAPER. “I love taking things, weird things, cute things, old things, anything and turning them into looks.”
But despite her impressive use of colors and makeup in communicating her aesthetic, she refuses to label herself as a makeup artist. “My makeup is just for me, I see it as an extension of myself and an art form,” she says. “I actually don’t enjoy doing makeup on others. I have a ton of respect for working MUAs; there’s a lot of knowledge that goes into the profession.”
