Designer Lulin Ding is taking makeup to a whole new level with a digital eyeshadow concept that uses a system of wires and an LED bulb to bathe the wearer’s eye in light.

“I was interested in the way women wear eyeshadow and how most of the time you can only see the details when their eyes are closed,” writes Ding on her website. “I sought to translate the attributes of eyeshadow into a digital medium. I made the initial decision to use the light to paint the eyelids when you blink and close your eye.”

I don’t know if this will ever catch on since it seems a little uncomfortable (and it might give you a blinding headache), but I will say this — when you wink at someone it will be a lot more powerful. Maybe her next project could involve getting our teeth to flash and make that "ting!" sound when we smile. Notcot via ecouterre
