Professional makeup artist Jeneva Zoya Edwards created this original zipper look in August, but it’s going viral now that Halloween is quickly approaching.

The look features a zipper down the model’s face, which opens from her jawline to her eyebrows. The inside of the zipper features sparkling crystals, and the look is completed with a fierce eyeshadow with the same shimmer.

Edwards tells Yahoo Lifestyle that she first developed the zipper look a few years back in an international makeup competition.

“This year I decided to re-create it but make it more glamorous and meaningful,” she shares. “As makeup artists and makeup educators, we can dress up so pretty on the outside, but what outshines everything and truly matters is the hidden beauty inside — that’s the deeper message my zipper look illustrates.”

Her gorgeous creation is resonating with many. One commenter wrote: “You changed my perspective on makeup. You are truly in a class of your own. You have an impeccable talent.” Another commenter added, “I am literally blown away by this look. How did u do the zipper?”

Huge thanks for all the love on my latest dynamic master piece! Alhamdulillah my Lord keeps blessing these magical hands and this persistent mind of mines to always execute my best at His given time May He always protect me and grant me all that is best for me, Aameen #makeupbyzoya #makeupfanatic1 #universodamaquiagem_oficial #zipface #glitter #glittermakeup #glittereyeshadow #rhinestones #fabulousfashion #art #creativity #humble #ilovemyjob #ilovemakeup #makeupforblackwomen #brian_champagne | Eyeshadows by @juviasplace Zulu Palette #juviasplace • Brows by @anastasiabeverlyhills Chocolate Dipbrow #anastasiabeverlyhills (Thanks for making an awesome model) @tdaisley

She feels overwhelmed by the responses and is thankful her look has received so much praise. “I am truly honored,” Edwards says. “I was hoping it would go viral, and God is great because it did.”

Edwards isn’t the only one to create a “zipper face.” Makeup artist Gabriella Avillar has done her own golden rendition of the look.

Some makeup artists have even given the “zipper face” look a spooky twist.
