Who’s Mimi Choi?
She was before a school teacher. Now, Choi has been doing makeup for three years now and uses paint brushes to achieve detail. She attended classes at Blanche Macdonald, a local beauty school to learn her craft, but really pushes things to the limits by creating makeup that’s so extreme it looks Photoshoped at first glance. Some of the looks she creates, such as one she calls “shoelace quadruple eye” (above), take up to five hours to complete.
Featuring a variety of the makeup artist’s trippiest and most impressive work, her photos will absolutely blow your mind and totally change your perspective on what makeup can do to a face (or a hand). Perhaps most notably, Mimi’s work takes optical illusions to the next level — and what she’s able to achieve with products most people already have in their makeup bags is pure magic.
