Makeup Artist Creates Mind-Boggling Optical Illusions On Her Body With Makeup

While makeup may traditionally be seen as something we put on to enhance our natural beauty, people prove, time and time again, that makeup is more than that— it's a tool to fuel creativity.

One makeup artist uses other parts of her body to create the wildest optical illusions that will have you doing a double take.

To say Mimi Choi is a talented makeup artist is a complete understatement.

Illusion makeup is totally Mimi's lane.

Mimi's story is definitely a lesson in following your heart and gut.
