They say that the right makeup can take years off your face, and I think it's definitely true. I don't know about you, but I've always admired people who can make others look their best.

And that's exactly what Anar Agakishiev, a makeup artist showing his talents on Instagram, does extremely well. To say that he's a master at his craft would be an understatement. So let's take a look at some of his incredible creations.

This Beautiful Lady

Look at this lady here. I can definitely tell it's the same person, but she looks so much more polished, no? I think this new hair color suits her better than the one she had before. What do you think of this transformation?

These Cheekbones

Who needs plastic surgery when you can create cheekbones like these with makeup, huh? Um, I don't think so. Not only do this lady's cheeks look good, but I love how gorgeous her eyes are now. Do you agree with that?

This Skin Correction

This woman looks like she had a lot of skin damage, perhaps from the sun. But a talented artist like Anar Agakishiev knows how to fix that. Her skin looks absolutely flawless now, and I bet she's completely thrilled with that. I know I would be.

This Beauty

Wow! This gorgeous lady reminds me of Chrissy Teigen in the after picture. Doesn't she look a lot like her, huh? They can practically be twins, haha. I'm amazed at how stunning her skin looks after this makeover. Sign me up!

This Lovely Transformation

Mature skin can certainly pose a lot more challenges for a makeup artist. A lot of the makeup settles in fine lines and can be tricky to cover up. But that doesn't mean it can't be done. As you can see here, Anar and his talented team are right on it. I think this transformation turned out quite alright.

These Stunning Eyes

Oh my! I'm obsessed with this lady's gorgeous blue eyes. Not only did they look beautiful before, but now they're the focus of this entire look. And her skin is impeccable to boot. I can't stop staring at her. Stunning, absolutely stunning!

This Beautiful Look

If you've ever had a birthmark that you wanted to cover up, I am here to tell you that it is possible. This lady is a living example of it. She had a huge birthmark on her face that made her appear red, but with the right makeup, she now looks impeccable. I can't even believe the difference here.

This Fabulous Transformation

Age spots aren't fun, especially when they start to appear on your face. I bet this lady can tell you all about it. But as you can see, they're not impossible to hide. With a few makeup tricks, her face got transformed now, and all I can say is, "wow!"

This Fun Look

I don't know if you agree, but this lady reminds me of Cher. I guess it must be her facial features and her long hair. I really like how pretty her eyes look here too. What do you think of this makeover?

This Lovely Look

The older I get, the more I find the area around my eyes trickier to apply makeup. It's hard to avoid showing crow's feet if you don't know what you're doing (like me). So when I see makeup that looks flawless like this, I can't help but be impressed.

This Rockin' Style

I don't know about you, but I think this lady could be in a rock 'n roll band if she wanted to, haha. Both her hair and makeup make her look like a superstar. What do you think about that? Do you agree with me?

This Awesome Look

Wow! If I didn't know better, I wouldn't have guessed this was the same lady. I wonder if she recognized herself in the mirror when she saw this transformation. I would definitely do a double take if I were her. This look is so gorgeous, no?

This Fabulous Look

If you've ever had troubled skin, you know how hard that can be. So I bet this lady was absolutely thrilled with how she looks after this makeover here. I honestly wouldn't even realize this was the same person if I didn't see the before picture.

This Wonderful Transformation

I'm always amazed at how well makeup artists can hide all skin imperfections. I have a hard time covering up a few pimples, haha. Honestly, when I look at this lady here, all I can see is her flawless skin. That's such a huge difference from the before picture, no?

This Courageous Work

This woman had a tragic accident when she was only six years old, which affected her confidence. Today, Anar and his team of specialists made her look as good as she's ever looked and gave her back her spark. Bravo!

This Amazing Makeover

Here's another amazing lady Anar and his team got to work with. I bet they felt honored for her to put her trust in them. In the end, they made her look stunning, and I think she's got something new to smile about, huh?

This Incredible Work

We all struggle with confidence, but it must be that much harder when somebody has a different appearance. Today, Anar brought a miracle to this lady, and something tells me she's really grateful for it. I think she looks absolutely beautiful.

This Beautiful Bride

I can tell you that your wedding day is something that you will never forget. Having experienced that now, I know what I'm talking about. So it's wonderful to see this bride get the vision of herself she's always dreamed of on her wedding day. Wow! Kudos to Anar and his team for creating this amazing look.

Wow! What did I tell you?

The power of makeup is amazing. Am I right? I always wish I had better makeup skills, but even if I did, it wouldn't be anywhere near as flawless as this. I'm blown away by these incredible transformations here, and I'm glad to see that Anar and his team work this hard to bring smiles to women's faces. Let's applaud them for their hard work.
