Whoa! I can't quite believe this makeup artist's optical illusions

We consider ourselves quite the experts on optical illusions here at Creative Bloq. We've studied everything from optical illusions that stem from how our brain processes visual data to artistic trompe l'oeil illusions. But we can still be blown away, and sometimes by surprising mediums.

We don't often think of makeup when we think of optical illusions, but talented and creative makeup artists can create some incredibly realistic visual trickery verging on movie-level practical special effects. That's the case of an artist who's been stunning the world on social media.
