While most of us struggle to apply bright lippy without veering into clown territory, this makeup artist takes statement lips to a whole new level.

Using her face as a canvas, London-based Laura Jenkinson has spent the last year creating renditions of popular cartoon characters and the results are incredible.

The 25-year-old expertly paints the characters around her mouth area, lending her lips and/or teeth (which look hilariously massive in comparison) to bring them to life.

ARTIST EXTRAORDINAIRE: 25-year-old London makeup artist Laura Jenkinson has a mouthful of talent.

Her paintings include everything from traditional Disney stalwarts and Lion King animals to more modern favourites such as Finding Nemo's Dory, Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc and snowman Olaf from Frozen.

Everytime we think we've picked a favourite, we stumble upon yet another amazing artistic feat (the Beauty and the Beast characters are a must-see, oh and check out the snarl on the Tasmanian Devil!)

Anyone else feeling hopelessly inadequate with a makeup brush now?
