Through hours of painstaking work, makeup artist Lisa Houghton transformed her face into a replica of the Mona Lisa that would even make Da Vinci proud.

After years working with supermodels and celebrities like Karie Kloss, Lily Aldeidge, Taykor Swift, Cameron Diaz and more, Houghton has created looks that have graced covers of magazines around the world.

And as she documented her artistry on Instagram, her masterpieces took off. Though, unlike other artists, Houghton's work is ephemeral, lasting only until she washes her face.

Coming up next Lisa plans to get out of the studio and incorporate nature as a backdrop for her face painting. And of course you can keep up with all of her work on Instagram @LisaHoughton.
