Avant de devenir une grande maquilleuse, Mimi Choi était institutrice en maternelle à Vancouver, aux Etats-Unis. Elle a fait de sa passion son métier puisqu’aujourd’hui, elle est réputée comme l’une des maquilleuses les plus talentueuses de la planète.
Ça change de la youtubeuse tuto maquillage
Sa force est de réaliser des maquillages sous forme de trompes l’oeil, d’illusions d’optique assez époustouflantes.
La jeune femme de 31 ans n’utilise évidemment pas Photoshop pour le rendu de ses clichés. Tout est fait à partir de maquillage.
Des oeuvres d’art qui prennent du temps. Pour certains maquillage, elle peut passer des heures à réaliser la forme parfaite qu’elle veut donner au visage. Et elle a un gout particulier pour l’horreur et le morbide avec les photos que vous pourrez voir ci-dessous.
Mon visage est une page blanche d’où je peux exercer mon art.
This is #makeup • Hand-painted #ZIPPER hand ft. @andrewy527 model hand shadow ?? • Used @maccosmetics Chromacakes in Black and White and Silver Pigment Colour Powder mixed with mixing medium for this little piece. _____________________________ "The trick to being well fed is you have to stop looking up at everything you don't have, and look around at everything you do." – Rupi Kaur
This is #makeup • OCTOPUS LIP ART ? hand-painted using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and Supracolors. Shaded using Kryolan matte eyeshadows. This is inspired by and dedicated to my fiancé @andrewy527 who has been asking me to do #octopus for the longest time! He's the person behind a lot of my strange creations and inspires me more than anybody in this world. Thank you for pulling me out of my black pit over and over again and always believing in me. ❤️
My GEISHA ANDROID #makeup digitally animated by @theglitch.og ?? • This makeup was inspired by Manga #GhostintheShell and was done using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Aqua XL Color Paints and Ink Liners, @kryolanofficial Supracolor Palette "N" and Smokey Rose Matte Eyeshadow Palette, as well as @mehronmakeup Face & Body Makeup and Metallic Powders. • Model: @hellosambo
Face steak anybody? ? • This is #makeup • 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. ?
SLICED + SHIFTED FACE in movement ?? • Thank you for the overwhelming amount of love! ❤ Key to doing this type of #trickart is using the color black to mimic space and depth, and using light colors to highlight edges to create the illusion of height, volume and separation. Taking your photo and video at the right angle is also crucial in creating an impactful illusion. If you truly understand the concept of highlighting and shading, I believe you can create anything on any canvas! ?#makeupvideo _______________ Shift makeup illusion done using @nyxcosmetics matte black liquid eyeliner and Vivid Brights. Inspired by the brilliant illustrations of @miles_art.
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
NOT PERFECT LIKE A ROBOT | This post is for those who are suffering from eating disorders silently. I do not have an eating disorder but I did when I was a teenager and I never told anybody not because I was ashamed of it – but because I felt I did not look like someone who was suffering from an E.D. and I was embarrassed. I didn't qualify because I didn't think I was thin enough and suffered silently for years. Although I appeared to be happy and somewhat healthy (I was under 100lbs at my lowest but I looked average among my tiny Asian friends), I often felt worthless and ashamed whenever I was alone. I had an E.D. because weight was the only thing that I felt I had total control over. It was the one thing that I really wanted to master because every thing else in my life was not going the direction that I wanted it to. But I failed even at that because I did not even get close to my goal; I failed because I would binge eat at 3AM from severe hunger; I failed because I was imperfect inside and outside. I could not ask for help because I was so ashamed but I was sick, mentally and physically. I cried a lot. Fortunately, I finally got the courage up to find support online and eventually recovered. And now at age 31, I have learned to embrace myself completely and nobody would have guessed that I had an eating disorder because I enjoy food so much. If you are experiencing what I have gone through when I was younger, I just want to let you know that you are not alone and that you do not need to look a certain way or weigh a certain number to ask for help. I also want to let you know that hitting that unhealthy goal weight would not make you feel better about yourself – it would only make you want to set another unrealistic goal and the dissatisfaction is never-ending. Beauty is unstable – even the most beautiful woman will eventually get old and lose her physical attractiveness. But if you focus on your health and building on your qualities inside, they will only get better as you age and the reward is definite. You do not need to be perfect to be successful and nobody ever expects you to be. ❤️ •••••• Robot hand #makeup using @patmcgrathreal Metalmorphosis 005

"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
