Faces, just like a canvas, are made up of multiple lines.  The proof is in our symmetry and attraction.  Just like traditional artists and painters, make up artists today can create lines using dark and bright colours; blending them to create a certain look.

Artists also use hard and stark lines to create stopping points and definition for certain features on the face like eyes.
