Did the thumbnail of this video make you do a double-take? Because we sure as hell did. Promise Phan (Dope2111 on YouTube) is famous for her skillful makeup transformations, whether into animated characters or celebrities like Bruno Mars and Jennifer Lawrence. This one, however, which the YouTuber calls "trippy double vision," is the most shocking.
Watch the video to check out how Phan created the look — and stick around for some hilarious scenes at the end when she takes it outside.
First things first: Please forgive how awkward the sponge rubbing in this video is, because seeing Dermablend products in action literally makes us gasp. The brand, which creates high-coverage, yet nearly undetectable, foundations, worked its magic on this tattoo-covered man. We won't give too much away, but we will say it's incredible watching what the right product can do.
Kandee Johnson is another incredibly skilled makeup artist on YouTube. In this video, she takes a good look at Barbie and recreates the doll's look on her own face. We think the results are pretty uncanny, actually.
Sure, spider lashes may not be your thing, but in this video, Lauren Curtis shows the world how much work (and time) it takes to get a voluminous set. Warning: You may want to give the trend a go after watching this video.
And finally, NikkieTutorials' viral video on the power of makeup. In it, the makeup artist leaves half of her face bare while going full glam on the other. The goal? To show her viewers that makeup is all about self-expression. To quote Nikkie herself, "I want people to know that makeup is fun and there are no rules...[it's] there for days when you wanna look hella good!" Amen, Nikkie. Amen.
