Photo of the Day: This Crazy-Cool Emoji Makeup
The primitive appeal of Emojis must be something similar to the Egyptians using pictographs as writing. Just like those old pharaohs, we're using symbols that are universally understood -- and ours don't even need a Rosetta stone for translation. Or maybe I'm getting too meta. Maybe the reason we all love Emojis so damn much is because they're straight-up awesome.
That's why this editorial spread from V Magazine featuring emojis on real-live people made us smile. Peter Philips' whimsical images -- including pandas painted on fingertips, googly eyes on top of eyes, a giant crystal crab claw (?), and jewels everywhere -- totally brightened our day. Thanks, NY Mag.
