Thirty-one-year-old Mimi Choi is a Vancouver-based make-up artist who creates mind-blowing optical illusions on herself.
 
Never using Photoshop for any of her pictures, Choi creates the illusions using only her makeup skills to achieve everything from quadrupling eyes to slicing her head in half.
 
“My face is a blank canvas where I can practice my art”, Choi explains.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Using a black eyeliner to give the effect of negative space, she has also severed her arm to show lemon flesh and transformed her hand into a piece of prawn sushi.
 
Often spending up to five hours on an artwork, Choi aims to use her Instagram to champion the benefits of releasing your creativity through any and every possible outlet.
 
“I hope that my strange creativity can inspire people to think outside the box", Choi writes on Instagram. She writes about having struggled with anxiety and panic attacks, expressing the liberating value of imagination in her work.
 
Painting, highlighting and contouring through these inventive experimentations, Choi's creations are in every way jaw dropping.
