There's more artistry in the makeup world than we usually notice.
Men might think women just apply a smokey eye with no effort, but it's actually a complex visual look.
In order to avoid a black eyeshadow disaster that says "narcoleptic raccoon" rather than "sensual evening swan," some consideration of light and shadows comes into play. Your crease is violet and your eyelid has a dab of pearlescent shimmer in the middle, creating the illusion your eye is bigger and set deeper than it actually is.
The fact is this: If you can paint your face, you can probably paint a canvas. And when it comes to South Korean artist Dain Yoon, 22, the two are inseparable.
The art student is attracting viral attention for her ability to turn her face into art, flawlessly executing optical illusions that play on her own features. Need five extra eyeballs or for your face to blend into wallpaper? She's your girl.
In case you're curious as to how the magic happens, Yoon also includes behind-the-scenes videos of her transformations. Try watching them just once.
Let's start with the most obvious transformation. In this self-portrait, Yoon side-eyes her own image.
