Okay, we’ve seen some amazing special effects makeup in our time, but Mimi Choi’s makeup takes optical illusions to the next level! Seriously, whether or not you have a particular enthusiasm for makeup, you need to be following Choi (a Vancouver-based makeup artist) on Instagram.

Whoa. Just. Whoa.

In an interview with, she said, “When I do illusions now, I draw my inspiration mostly from my surroundings, photography, paintings, and emotions. I try not to look at other makeup artists’s work too much and challenge myself to produce original, unique work.”

Meanwhile this is straight out of a horror movie.

As you can see in her descriptions, the products that Choi is using usually aren’t any different from the regular mascara, lip pencils, eye shadows and creams that we use for our normal makeup routine. Damn, girl!

Breakfast anyone?

WOW. Choi is ridiculously, impossibly talented. These designs are so hypnotic.

Ummmmmmmm. Good luck getting any work done today!

Mimi, you’re about to have a ton more followers on Instagram. Keep showing off your amazing bursts of creativity, because we’ll never get sick of it!

A cheeky snap for the road? Love her sense of humor.
