Artist’s makeup illusions

This is perhaps the most intriguing (and bizarre) face makeup I’ve ever seen.  When she speaks in the makeup at the beginning, it will freak you out. Who is she? Here are the YouTube notes:

Dain Yoon is an illusion artist known on Instagram for her face and body painting. The illusions are all incredibly detailed with life-like features, especially the eyes. We invited her to our studio to show us how she creates these optical illusions, using a mix of body paint and makeup.

Her webpage is here, and her Instagram page is here, where you’ll find many stupendous looks like the ones in the video below (check out this page, for instance).

    I’m kind of expecting someone to accuse her of blackface.

      Damn this auto correct!

      That should have been BLOCK face.

      Is this a sign of how pernicious words have become?

        Prof, is there any way you can delete these for me?
        I’m suddenly terrified of consequences from one slip of the keyboard.
        Especially that happy face icon.

    Her work’s astonishing! She is indeed one of the best artists I’ve seen in some time.

    I’m pretty lacking in the creativity department, so her kind of creativity is just beyond my comprehension.

    That’s wild. I’ve seen various artists do Trompe-l’œil painting on sidewalks, in alleyways, and on buildings, but I’ve never seen it done like this.

    Oh wow! Holy crow! This is wonderful! I’ve been feeling like homemade sh*t all day, and then I went to her website and saw such wonderful pictures! Those pictures made my day. What a skillful, talented artist she is to create such wonderful things!

    Coolest new art form I’ve seen in a good long time … at least since before we went into pandemic lock-down.

    How many years has it been now, anyway? Anyone still remember?
