@mis­s­jazmi­nad It was dur­ing a trying time in her life that Jazmina Daniel de­cided to delve into the world of lip art. For the 25-year old Aus­tralian makeup artist, lip art was a form of cathar­tic out­let, to help her cope with her bat­tle with can­cer. She was di­ag­nosed with a brain tu­mour when she was 14, and had a life-threat­ing brain surgery at 17. Thank­fully, the surgery was a suc­cess and the ex­pe­ri­ence left Daniel with a new­found ap­pre­ci­a­tion for life and art. “I be­lieve that it was makeup that helped me get through it. In a way, it saved me,” she told Huff­in­g­ton Post. Daniel usually ac­com­pa­nies her lip art with cool 3D nail art, for just that lit­tle ex­tra some­thing. In her in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the sink­ing of the Ti­tanic, she used her nail art to re­sem­ble the rocky ice­berg that sank the ill-fated lux­ury liner. So far, she has also recre­ated many de­tailed scenes from some of her favourite films and books. So in­tri­cate are her cre­ations, that some of them take a few hours to com­plete. The hum­ble lass uses her suc­cess on In­sta­gram as a sup­port net­work for those af­fected by can­cer, and she con­tin­ues to share her love and pas­sion for lip art on her YouTube ac­count and so­cial me­dia chan­nels.
