Makeup artist Mimi Choi (@mimles on Instagram) creates the most incredible (and admittedly creepy) optical illusions—on herself.
The 31-year-old makeup mastermind is from Vancouver, Canada.
In an interview with Allure, Choi explained: “My main goal each time I do a new look is to beat myself from yesterday because I’m the biggest critic and competition to myself. It’s gotten really hard to impress myself these days but it motivates me to keep trying and doing better.”
Choi used to be a school teacher before taking classes at a local beauty school three years ago.
Her mind-boggling masterpieces often take hours to complete.
She also shares her work on Facebook.
It’s not just her face that’s blowing our mind.
That’s not sushi. THAT’S ACTUALLY HER HAND.
Her inspiration was pretty straight forward: “My sushi looks were inspired by a sushi dinner that I had,” she told Allure. To make the “sushi,” she used Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliners, Suva Beauty Hydra liners, and Kryolan Aquacolors.
Seriously, Choi’s work has us tripping out over here.
