Instagrammer Combines His Love Of Makeup With Snacks And It’s Magic

Tim O puts the “fun” in Funyuns.

This Instagram account is just like a bag of chips, it’s filled with flavor.

Makeup artist Tim Owens’ Skelotim is brimming with makeup tutorials inspired by the 26-year-old’s undying love for all things snack food. He has borrowed the color palettes from the packaging of Pop Tarts, Ruffles and Funyons to create some pretty stellar looks.

The idea came to Owens, who has been making faces look fierce for the past eight years, during his regular morning routine about eight months ago.

“One day I was doing my makeup while eating Hot Cheetos, and thought to myself, ‘These colors are gonna look amazing on my face!’ Because I love bold makeup!” Owens told HuffPost. “I went with it, posted it and people loved it.”

The self-described “fat bitch” also seems to love who he is and how he lives his life as much as he loves to pop a can of Pringles.

“I literally cannot live without chips,” he said. “I've just embraced the fact that I'm going be fat forever, but as long as I have my chips I'm OK with it.”

Though Owens loves junk, his taste in makeup is anything but. Owens is a fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills products for eyes, and for lips he likes ColourPop Cosmetics.

“Their liquid lipstick are ahfreakingmazing!” he said. “Very bold, pigmented and they stay on while I eat all my greasy chips!”

When it comes to his favorite look, it’s his most recent. He used the bright purple and yellow from a bag of Takis to create an eye-popping look.

“The colors are so bold and so out there, they would literally stand out in the dark.”

Owens has also realized that shticks are like chips -- you can’t have just one. He also plans to borrow colors from bottles and cans of beer in the very near future.

“I figured I might as well give the people some ‘It's 5 o'clock somewhere’ inspiration,” he said.

Owens also claims to have some other amazing projects in the works as well, including a shift over to YouTube, so his followers can have a better grasp of his sparkling personality.

“Because I really feel I have a lot to teach the world not only about art, but self-acceptance as well,” said the artist who isn’t ruffled by what others think of him. “I'm all about embracing my flaws, and making a joke about them because I'm comfortable with them. And I wish more people would be too.”

The color of your go-to foundation and concealer is a tell-tale sign that it's time to get rid of it. Cream or liquid foundations typically last 12 to 18 months.

Dried-Up Mascara

Over-pumping your mascara wand in the tube exposes it to air and allows bacteria to creep in. Be sure to seal your mascara tightly after each use and purchase a new one every three to six months.

These products are generally free of parabens and synthetic preservatives. Storing them in your refrigerator in between uses will help them to last longer, according to celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenburg. However, they often expire after three to six months.

Dirty Makeup Sponges

If your color cosmetics have permanently stained the applicator, then you should discard it immediately. Always clean after each use and replenish your makeup sponges weekly (or as often as needed).

Used Makeup Blotting Papers

There's a reason this product is considered "single-use." Use it once and throw it out!

Melted Lipstick

You should be able to easily detect if something is off with your lipstick or lipgloss by simply paying close attention to its texture, color or scent. It's also pretty common for these products to get overheated in your makeup bag and literally explode. Let go and latch onto another lippie, making sure to replace at least every year.

This one's pretty self-explanatory. Besides, the mess that shattered powder shadows create inside your makeup bag simply isn't worth it.

Uncovered Lip/Eye Pencils

While makeup pros swear by sharpening their lip and eye pencils to keep them fresh and sanitized, leaving them uncovered attracts germs that may lead to sickness.

General rule of thumb: Once your nail polish separates and starts to clump, throw it out.

Expired Sunscreen/Moisturizer

There's a very obvious reason these are labeled with an expiration date: they aren't as effective past that time. Not to mention, when exposed to heat or humid temperatures, the consistency of sunscreen and moisturizer can change.
