Incredibly Talented Makeup Illusionist Is Changing The Game

As a guy, I’m not going to pretend I have the faintest idea what’s going on when it comes to makeup. I know that you use foundation and concealer… eyeliner, mascara… lipstick? Wow, actually I’m starting to feel like I’m pretty elite come to think of it.

But Mimi Choi is on a whole new level when it comes to the delights of painting your face. She’s a makeup artist based in Vancouver and is AMAZING. Check out some of her work!

But Mimi isn’t just a makeup artist, let’s be real. She’s an illusionist and visual artist – now there’s a worthy title. What’s great is she explains how each look is created and with which products.. I don’t think she needs to worry about being copied though. This look was inspired by Salvador Dali’s melting clock.

Choi has over 450,000 followers on Instagram and is growing fast. It’s no wonder when she’s putting out staggering content and works like this!

“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”

Well, it’s working Mimi. Can you believe this stuff isn’t photo-shopped?! The illusions she creates really do blow your mind, just look at this one and tell me you aren’t impressed.

Of course Mimi doesn’t just use your regular makeup brushes, she uses actual paint brushes to achieve the fine detail. Before going into this as a full-time job she was a teacher!

Thankfully she is able to earn a living by also doing regular makeup artistry and I have to say that’s probably a good idea because you wouldn’t want (unless it’s your thing) to walk down the street like this…

Well, I’m thoroughly impressed and hope you are too. We can’t wait to see what Mimi posts next, but one thing is for sure is her Halloween costume this year is going to be sick!

Check her out on Instagram @mimles!
