You might want to prepare yourself for this one because there’s a new makeup tutorial that’s inducing nightmares and more than a little awe. We’ve been fans of makeup artist Mimi Choi’s intense optical illusion looks for a minute now, and she is currently having a bit of a Salvador Dali moment. This makeup look was inspired by the Surrealist master’s work, and Mimi is definitely paying tribute in style.
Her latest work depicts, well, nothing. There’s a big gaping black hole where Mimi’s face should be. Some of us are into spooky things, but for others, this is even creepier than a face full of Halloween gore and blood.
It’s not exactly the easiest Halloween makeup look to recreate, but we think it could be a fun one to attempt. Mimi posted a video of her work in motion, and it’s slightly less disturbing. The entire look took 1.5 hours to execute but we’re pretty sure a way-less-impressive version would take us half a day. #InstagramVsReality.
The hole-y face in action.
Mimi is having a Dali moment.
We think the artist summed it up perfectly when she said, “It’s all fun and games until someone tries to throw a ball through your face.” Careful out there, Mimi!
