Are you ready to give your eyes and brain an intensive workout? Optical illusions are nothing new. You’ve probably seen various images online that stimulate your brain. But makeup artist Mimi Choi has taken optical illusions to a new level. She uses a combination of color and shadows to give her skin a 3D/perspective look that will totally make your eyes pop out.
Interestingly enough, Mimi was a teacher before she discovered makeup art. “I felt like my creativity was suppressed,” she said. “I enjoyed teaching but I wasn’t completely happy. I needed a new challenge.”
Once she left the teaching profession, she started experimenting and practicing with makeup. And soon afterward, a new career was born. “I’ve always been arty and had done bridal makeup before, which people really liked. I’d not done anything as crazy as the work I do now, though.”
Mimi enrolled at a local beauty college to help hone her skills. And then things changed for her dramatically around Halloween. “I wanted to do something different for October 31, so I had a look on Instagram and found a photo of a woman, who looked like her face had cracked.”
So she decided to try it herself. “I’d never tried any kind of crazy make-up on myself, but I just got out my black and white eyeliner and gave it a go.” Thus was the beginning of what you’re about to see now.
