October 2, 2017

Makeup is often used for slight improvements to your look but some people use their creativity to unleash it’s magic. Mimi Choi, a 31-year-old makeup artist from Vancouver, Canada knows the power of makeup. She uses makeup to create intense hyperreal optical illusions with her creativity and has gets support from 274,000 followers on Instagram.

She was a teacher at preschool before she realized this mind blowing talent of her. She said, “I felt like my creativity was suppressed. I enjoyed teaching but I wasn’t completely happy,” She left the school and started practicing with some brushes at her place.

Before discovering this art, Mimi  was a teacher and worked at a pre-school for three years. “I felt like my creativity was suppressed. I enjoyed teaching but I wasn’t completely happy,” she said. “I needed a new challenge.” After leaving teaching, she started experimenting with her makeup brushes at home.

“I’ve always been arty and had done bridal makeup before, which people really liked. I’d not done anything as crazy as the work I do now, though.” She joined a beauty college that helped her improve her skills but she wanted to do something mind blowing on Halloween. “I wanted to do something different for October 31, so I had a look on Instagram and found a photo of a woman, who looked like her face had cracked.”

“I’d never tried any kind of crazy make-up on myself, but I just got out my black and white eyeliner and gave it a go.” And now it’s viral!

Choi uses her creativity, skills and a good know how of prespectives to create three dimensional experience on a flat surface. She perfectly uses make up for manipulating like an artist uses his brushes and colors. She creates a multidimensional experience using the shadows to make the skin glow up or to fallback.
