This Makeup Artist Painted Hogwarts On Her Body And It’s Magical

Makeup artist and body painter Georgina Ryland just took Harry Potter fandom to a whole new level.

Ryland recently painted a nighttime scene depicting Hogwarts at night on her body, and the result is truly a masterpiece.The Brisbane, Australia-based artist created the work of art using both makeup and paint.
This look is inspired by a scene from Harry Potter and the [Sorcerers] Stone, Ryland wrote in a YouTube description of the look. It took roughly five hours to paint but I could have happily gone for ten hours! It was challenging but fun to try it in this painterly style.

⚡️ hogwarts ⚡️ . About time I gave Hogwarts a shot! This paint took five hours total but I could probably have happily painted it for ten – challenging but fun. I used a painterly sort of style and a speed paint will be up on YouTube by tomorrow ☺️ .

Ryland made a timelapse video that shows just how much time and effort it took to create the Hogwarts scene.

In an interview with Mashable, the makeup artist explained her inspiration for the Hogwarts art.

I’ve always been a fan of Harry Potter and I have wanted to paint the castle for a while now, Ryland said. I picked this particular reference image because it is so recognisable and has a very fantastical and magical feel to it.

The Hogwarts scene is just one of many whimsical, detailed works of body painting featured on Rylands Instagram. Check out more of her incredible talent below or visit her website:

a r t d e c o ✨ It feels like so long since I painted. I’ve been so busy with work that I barely have time to sit down! This one was only supposed to be a little paint but oops haha. I got really into it but I do wish I planned it ahead so I could have done it more symmetrical and what not. I was inspired by Art Deco design and used a couple of difference references for this look. The face is inspired by a mix of @rosharofficial and @patmcgrathreal. I used 🔻 @mehronmakeup Gold Metallic Powder, Mixing Medium, Black Paradise Paint 🔻 @inglot_australia 121 AMC Pure Pigment, 45 Body Sparkles, 299, 300, 301, 305 Freedom Eyeshadows 🔻 @katvondbeauty Shade and Light Face Palette, Witches Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Trooper Tattoo Liner 🔻 @sugarpill Detox Lipstick, Bulletproof 🔻 @meltcosmetics Amelie and Lovesick 🔻 @houseoflashes Pixie Luxe Lashes ✨ #georginaryland

💦 tui and la 💦 . Return of these two cuties; I painted myself as the two spirits from Avatar: The Last Airbender for @ozcomiccon Brisbane. I only had 2 hrs to paint so I’m pretty happy for such a speedy paint: however I did have 30mins of touch ups for these pictures to fix the patchiness! I’m thinking I might paint myself again for the next few conventions here ☺️ the love and the feedback was amazing to hear 😊 . .🔹@mehronmakeup Paradise Paints 30 AQ Palette 🔹@sugarpill Mochi, Afterparty, Velocity, Bulletproof, Lumi 🔹@katvondbeauty Trooper Tattoo Liner 🔹@illamasqua Spirit Palette 🔹@litcosmetics Champagne Wishes 🔹@jeffreestarcosmetics Blue Velvet and Abused Wig by @jamesthegemini . #georginaryland ✨ #ozcomiccon
