Run out of Pokéballs and are simply too lazy to walk to the nearest Pokéstop to get some more? No need to fret — you can just paint the Pokémon straight onto your face. Same thing, right? 

A number of bored and/or creative folks on Instagram have taken the whole Pokémon Go craze to a new level of fandom and created full-on Poké-spired makeup looks. 

There are some spot-on re-creations of fan-favorite characters such as Bulbasaur, Jigglypuff and Pikachu.

This isn't the first time the beauty industry and Pokémon Go have collided. In July, Refinery29 wrote about a care package that is "specifically designed for Pokémon Go enthusiasts," as the brand making the package wrote on its website.

What's next? A Pikachu-inspired eyeshadow palette? Or a MAC collaboration? Better yet, maybe Kylie Jenner's next Lip Kit shade will be orange and called Charmander.
