Make-up kan veel maskeren, dat wisten wij ook wel. Maar van de volgende foto’s worden we zelfs een beetje stil. Soms zelfs argwanend en bang.

Blijkbaar zijn vrouwen niet alleen in staat hun eigen gezicht mooier te maken, ze kunnen met make-up zelfs een heel ander gezicht aannemen. Geslachtsveranderingen, optische illusies, een paar neuzen of ogen erbij – niks is te gek voor een vrouw en haar make-up voor de spiegel.

Mimi Choi is toch wel een hele talentvolle make-up artist. Ze speelt in haar werk met optische illusies en onmogelijke vormen alsof ze Salvador Dali is en maakt hiermee van make-uppen een heuse kunstvorm.

CUBIC ▪️Sooo my @blancheworld International Extreme Makeup students requested to see a demo of a #cubism style makeup by @adurasova this morning… and to be honest I was a bit uncomfortable at the beginning because cubism was the one style that I had struggled with 3 years ago and had never truly accomplished due to frustration. But today I decided to push through my comfort zone and attempt it again for the first time in years. Very glad that I did it because I realized I did improve over the past few years and now I can do it! Not perfectly of course but at least I didn't give up halfway! 😆 Every day is a new challenge and learning opportunity for me and I'm so grateful to be able to do this as a career. 💓 Used @mehronmakeup Celebre Pro HD Makeup, @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca flash palette and @morphebrushes 35K for this.

Been doing makeup in front of this mirror inside of my bathroom for more than 3 years now (10+ years if you count those university years when I did my own clubbing makeup, etc) No fancy lights, backdrop or even a chair — I've always enjoyed standing in that little gap between my sink and my toilet and painting away for hours. I like tight spaces, it makes me feel secure. Sometimes I have music on, sometimes my cat sits in the sink and falls asleep while watching me… It's therapeutic. I'll be moving to a new place soon which means that I will have to adapt to a new painting environment. It's both scary and exciting at the same time because I've grown so attached to my old makeup spot. But I'll adapt and maybe it will finally motivate me to invest in better equipments. ⭐️ _________________________ "INCEPTION" #makeup illusion inspired by a photoshopped image of Paul Ryan. Used @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_canada pencil and liquid eyeliners plus matte eyeshadows for this look. Lashes are all @houseoflashes "Knockout" falsies except for the littlest ones that I had to paint on. All hand-painted, took 3 hours.

Elsha Rae is een make-up artist die zich binnen drie uur kan transformeren tot zo’n beetje alles waar we bang van worden.

Lucia Pittalis is ook erg goed met make-up. Ze gebruikt haar talent ook graag om zich om te toveren tot een oude man.
