These Eerie Portraits Were Made with Makeup, Not Photoshop


Mimi Choi is an Vancouver-based artist who has attracted half a million followers on Instagram for her optical illusion photos. The portraits she posts may look like digital Photoshop creations, but they’re not. Choi is a makeup artist who posts mind-bending photos made 100% in-camera thanks to her amazing talents with photo-realistic makeup.

Choi’s eerie portraits show herself and other models with faces that have been edited in ways reminiscent of Photoshop tools such as the Clone Stamp, Liquify, and more.
