Mimi Choi es una maquilladora profesional que ha dedicado sus redes sociales a algo más que crear fabulosos looks de alfombra roja. En su Instagram, hay que mirar dos veces, si te atreves, para empezar a entender sus creaciones.
Juega con la profundidad, luces y sombras y su cara se convierte en todo un trampantojo. Con su rostro como lienzo, y en ocasiones el de algún invitado, es capaz de crear ilusiones que te dejarán con la boca abierta.
Los maquillajes más increíbles de Mimi Choi
La artista no solo usa su rostro como lienzo de sus obras, convence a amigos para distorsionar sus caras e incluso se atreve con otras partes del cuerpo que hacen que la ilusión se extienda por todo los poros de su piel.
1- Sin rostro
What's a face? ??♀️ • This is #makeup • A FACELESS makeup illusion inspired by #SalvadorDali's Bronze Sculpture – Surrealist Newton. If you look closely, you will see my features disguised in the black and red paints. This is not photoshopped – I will post a video after. Used @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @makeupforeverofficial Flash Palette for this piece. This took 1.5 hours. @oakridgecentre @chalirossoartgallery #definitelydali
2- ¿Loro o persona?
This is #makeup • Funny #PARROT with a mohawk painted on the side of @andrewy527's face using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca flash palette and @mehronmakeup Paradise Face & Body Makeup. Andrew's eyes were closed here and parts of his features were painted white to blend with the white wall. Wasn't too detailed with this one as both of us were getting sleepy. Kudos to my awesome fiancé for sitting through these hours-long facepaints without ever complaining. Took 2 hours to finish this. ✨#macaw #beak #facepaint #mimleshalloween #halloweenmakeup
3- Extrema ilusión de derretido
You make me #melt like butter on toast. ? • This is #makeup • EXTREME MELT makeup #illusion using @kryolanofficial Supracolors and Aquacolors. I felt very inspired after seeing Salvador Dali's original masterpieces at @oakridgecentre today. This was inspired by #Dali's famous #meltingclock. ⏱ #halloweenmakeup #halloween2017 #mimleshalloween #meltingface
4- La vida es como una cebolla, llena de capas
Life is like an onion. You peel off layer after layer and then you realize there is absolutely nothing in it. ? – James Huneker __________________________ This is #makeup • Layered face #makeupillusion on @andrewy527 using @mehronmakeup Paradise Face & Body Makeup and @kryolanofficial matte eyeshadows for the shading. This is not Photoshopped – there will be a video after this. ?
5- ¿Jugamos al Jenga?
❗️JENGA❗️This is #makeup • I spent 4 hours "swatching" all of my @makeupforeverofficial Ultra HD Foundations this way. This was definitely a brain game. Not sure if I got smarter or dumber from doing this. ? Sometimes I surprise myself with the things I do for a complicated bitch #selfie. ??♀️ @makeupforeverca #jenga #halloweenmakeup #halloween2017 #2amshenanigans #mimleshalloween
6- Labios de sushi
7- El beso de la muerte
This is #makeup • When people ask me if I've heard of the #wavy trend ??♀️〰??〰 • Another #snake makeup illusion done using just a @makeupforeverofficial ink eyeliner, white kohl liner and matte eyeshadows. It's amazing what a little #highlighting and #contouring could do to trick the eye. After 3 years of experimenting with illusions, I'm still fascinated by the power of simple white and black paints and shadows. Every time I do an illusion, I learn and discover something new. ⚪️⚫️ #lipart #snakelips #halloweenmakeup #halloween2017 ____________________________ I'll be performing on stage at IMATS Vancouver this year! Who's going to be there? ❤️ @imatsofficial
8- Tienes la cara desordenada
This is #makeup • CTRL C + CTRL V ?????? • A facial #collage painted on Maxwell for a special project that will be coming out soon! ??? This took me around 3.5 hours to paint. It was challenging at the beginning because I had never painted Maxwell's eyes before, so I had to spend a good 15 minutes studying them and figuring out all the colors in his beautiful eyes. Used mainly my go-to @kryolanofficial Aquacolors, Supracolors and @mehronmakeup Face and Body Makeup for this. _____________________________________ Model: @maxwellparrperkins_ • Assist: @evelynaffleck • Makeup + concept by yours truly #bts #sneakpeek
10- ¿A quién no le gusta el kiwi?
11- Fallo del sistema
18- Mirada penetrante
This is MAKEUP ??? • "Don't give people so much power over you that their silence leaves you questioning your worth." • COPY AND PASTE #multipleeyes and brow makeup done on myself using @makeupforeverofficial ink liner, Aqua XL pencils and Aquarelle. Brows were painted on using Aqua Brow 25. Definitely not the most realistic looking but that was the best I could do after 3 illusions that day. Took around 1.5 hours. As @satsukisoma said to me, sometimes you feel like you're going to have a nose bleed from what you're doing but you just gotta keep going. ?
19- Solo quedan rodajas de lo que fui
20- Mi mejor perfil
She's a bitch. ? • This is #makeup • Dog #muzzle makeup using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and Supracolors. Inspired by the photoshopped images by surreal artist Sabastian Niedlich. Just a normal dog with human eyes, hair, body and 0 top teeth. ? Thought this was funny, not meant to be realistic. ? Had to paint something on myself after a long week of working on others, even though it's 2AM and my body is telling me to lie my ass down and sleep. ? #dothingsforyourself
21- Cambio de ojos
22- Me derrito de tristeza
23- Hoy me noto más ligera
CHOPPED ? This is #makeup • My only goal in life is to be better than myself yesterday. ? Chopped face makeup #illusion using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @mehronmakeup Celebré Pro HD Foundation. • I know some of you have questioned why there's no brain in my head – I did not intend to paint this in a way that reflects true anatomy. I create surreal art and it doesn't need to make any sense. ?
24- Grabado en madera
25- La gravedad es solo un concepto
Jet lagged ? • This is #makeup • An extension of my #MELT makeup using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors, @stilacosmetics intense black stay-all-day liquid eyeliner and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca liquid matte lipsticks. Honestly too tired to produce anything of quality or even take a decent photo but I was dying to create so at least I got it out of my system. Goodnight. ?#loopyaf
26- Fondo Psicodélico
27- Un plato de sushi
This is #MAKEUP on my hand ? • #SUSHIROLL makeup illusion using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @suvabeauty Hydra liners. All makeup, no Photoshop. I've been obsessed with this sushi series! ? If you are wondering where my arm is — I painted my wrist to blend with the dish and the rest of my arm black to camouflage into the table. Video coming next! ? #alaskaroll #sushi #illusionmakeup #handpainting #handmakeup
28- Mano robótica
29- ¡Adoro la miel!
"DRIP" MAKEUP ILLUSION hand-painted using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Acrylip 501 • Concept suggested by my fiancé @andrewy527, inspired by the amazing painter @mikedargas2014 ____________________ One year ago today, my grandpa passed away. It was by far the most painful thing I've ever had to endure but throughout this year, I've constantly felt his presence and guidance. I strongly feel that my grandpa has transferred some of his creativity and energy to me, and he's around cheering me on everyday. In 2017 and the years forward, my new year's resolution will always be to love the ones that I care about the best that I can and to constantly strive to be the best version of myself in every aspect. What's yours? ❤️#newyearsresolution
30- Es todo maquillaje
Desde luego que Mimi Choi es toda una artista que ha sabido dar un paso más en el arte del maquillaje. Sus seguidores no buscan solo la belleza, si no la tensión y dramatismo que genera con sus creaciones.
