Makeup Artist Saraswati Uses Her Hijab To Help Turn Herself Into Popular Characters

For years now, Malaysian makeup artist, Saraswati, or Queen of Luna as she is better known, has consistently amazed the online beauty community. Saraswati can transform into literally any popular character or person with just her amazing makeup skills and a hijab.

The self-taught artist began dabbling with makeup in 2008. At the time, she confessed that she was going through a particularly difficult period. However, instead of allowing her situation to get the best of her or bring her down, she chose to channel her energy into something more productive. First, she transformed into the Joker from “The Dark Knight.” By 2011, she was a professional makeup artist for special events.

The hijab, long deemed a symbol of modesty among Muslim women, is an essential element in every Queen of Luna look. For Saraswati, a lot of careful consideration goes into the process of incorporating it. Most importantly, she pays attention to the color and style of the hijab so that she can accurately render the character she’s morphing into.

 

Queen of Luna has certainly come a long way from her beginning as a makeup enthusiast
