A makeup artist has been using wasps and snails to create an unusual beauty look, but it all looks strangely familiar.ย 

Jasmine, a makeup artist based in California, US, has been using plant life and insects from her garden as part of herย โ€˜Botanical Installmentโ€™ series on social media.ย 

The self-taught artist shared this statement-making post on Instagram on Monday 22 May:

Naturally, social media users were concerned about the well-being of the wasp - with users asking if it was dead or alive.ย 

โ€œI happened to find him perfectly intact but dead in my yard,โ€ Jasmine explained.ย 

However, including a live insect in a beauty shoot has been done before. Back in 1995,ย photographer Irving Penn shot with a live bee for American Vogue, to create an image entitled โ€˜Bee On Lipsโ€™.ย 

Jasmine has also been inspired by other life in her garden - from slugs and flowers to greenery - with amazing results.ย
