Most of us know about the magic that makeup can wring but South Korean student Dain Yoon proves to us that makeup can be used to reach much greater lengths. This 22 year old artist, currently studying at the Korean National University of Arts, has managed to captivate the internet with her new style of illusion art makeup which has earned her over 20,000 Instagram followers in just the span of a month!
Yoon’s staggering works involve her recreating parts of her face on her hands and painting her face to implicate the background giving the eyes a very confusing yet captivating product to gaze upon.
Dain Yoon describes herself as an ‘illusion artist’ and claims that her decision to paint on people evolved from her belief that it helps give a more visual take on the multidimensional aspect of humans.
Take a look at some of these stunning shots!
There is even a shot of her face painted in such a breath-taking manner that it gave the appearance that she was kissing herself!
She can even paint her face to match inanimate objects such as this photograph in which her face blends into the background. In a shoot it was later revealed that the only real thing in this entire picture was her face (not even the teapot with her face painted on it).
Her work with inanimate objects and backgrounds doesn’t just end there!
She even paints outside and blends in with the natural surroundings with the exquisite strokes of her brush!
The following compilation of Dain Yoon’s instagram videos showcases the stark expertise that she displayedwhile painting perfect replicas of facial features on her hands and stunning the world with her makeup magic.
