    When you're as obsessed with beauty and the interwebs as we are, it's not uncommon to feel like many of the sites are starting to morph into one pretty, but all-too-similar, page. To remedy this, we've been looking for something new, something that will light that fire of our face-painting inspiration, something to add to our "procrastination" bookmarks folder.

    Enter, makeup artist Robin Black. Sure, she's got credits in Allure, Elle, and Vogue under her belt — not to mention a few stints at NYFW — but her work has also been featured at MOMA, the Tate Modern, and the Whitney.

Click through to check out some of our fave looks from this mega-talented makeup maven — and prepare to be inspired.

The city that was once a punchline for food snobs is now a gastronomic capital — and read
