Katsoessa kuvia meikkitaiteilijan luomuksista, ei uskoisi niitä tehdyiksi meikillä.

Mimi Choita ei turhaan kutsuta meikkitaiteilijaksi; kolmekymppinen vancouverilainen loihtii meikeillä kasvoilleen uskomattomia optisia illuusioita, jotka parhaimmillaan saavat silmät sekaisin ja miettimään, onko Choi todella saanut kaiken aikaan vain meikkien avulla.

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.

Choi on esimerkiksi saanut kätensä näyttämään syötävältä sushilta (alla) ja meikannut kasvonsa näyttämään siltä kuin ne olisi viilletty kahteen osaan ja yläosa olisi liikkunut sivuun (yllä).

Meikkitaitelija kertoi Allurelle saavansa inspiraatiota ympärillään olevista asioista, valokuvista, maalauksista ja tunteista.

”Koetan olla katsomatta muiden meikkitaiteilijoiden töitä ja haastan itseäni tekemään alkuperäisiä, ainutlaatuisia luomuksia”, Choi sanoi.

”Päätavoitteeni on joka kerta uutta tyyliä tehdessä päihittää itseni, koska olen oman itseni suurin kriitikko ja kilpailija. Vaikutuksen tekeminen itseeni on tullut todella vaikeaksi nykyisin, mutta se motivoi minua yrittämään ja olemaan parempi”, meikkitaitelija jatkoi.

Alluren mukaan Cho on entinen opettaja ja on tehnyt meikkejä nyt kolmen vuoden ajan. Hän on käynyt paikallisen kauneuskoulun oppiakseen meikkaamista ja käyttää siveltimiä yksityiskohtien tekemisessä meikeissään, jotka näyttävät siltä kuin niitä olisi muokattu kuvankäsittelyohjelmalla.

Optisten illuusioiden tekeminen vie aikansa ja esimerkiksi alla olevan meikin tekemiseen meni viisi tuntia.

If I could go back in time and tell my 20-year-old self anything: it is that terrible things will happen, but they will break you to save you. You will never be as thin or as beautiful as you have always wanted to be, but it is okay because someday you'll realize there are more valuable and attractive things about you than your exterior. The boy who took your hand when you were 19 will ask you to marry him one day. You two will hurt each other and have a lot to learn together in the years to come but don't ever doubt his love for you. Don't be so hard on yourself. You're trying your best and that's enough. You will keep messing up but you're not a disappointment. One day when you least expect it, you will finally find something that you're good at and it will reveal you. You will figure it out in your late twenties so just be patient. Everything happens for the best. Any pain will eventually fade no matter how unbearable it seems to be at the moment. Always be a positive energy. Treasure every moment because it could be the last. Tell people that you love them. Make decisions out of hope and not your fear. Your parents will tell you things that you don't want to hear but they are actually right. Family is the most important. You can be happy if you choose to be. You will eventually love yourself. You will be alright. x ____________ BROKEN • A #brokenface makeup #illusion using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Aqua lip liners, Aqua XL pencils, artist shadows, Aqua brow and @velourlashesofficial "Whispie Sweet Nothings".

HOLLOWED OUT • A #CARVED FACE makeup illusion • So I didn't actually stop carving my face after 30 minutes last night… and this is what I ended up with after 1 hour. Took one of my followers @ensomz's advice and incorporated thicker skin pieces and bigger holes for a more realistic look! Also realized that shading the thickness really added to the effect. A lot of people ask me how I do these things. My answer is through lots of trials and errors, patience and persistence. I learn most from doing things wrong and always looking back to see what could be done better. There's no easy way around it — no matter how much potential you have, you will not grow if you never push yourself out of your comfort zone. ________________________ A carved makeup attempt using @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_canada matte black liquid eyeliner and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca foundation palette. The eye area was painted black and my eye was closed to give the hollow effect. All #makeup, no Photoshop.
