These Insta-Makeovers Will Make You Insta-Impressed

Unless you live under a rock, chances are you're no stranger to Instagram and YouTube makeup transformations. They can be almost hypnotic to look at. Swipe some here, dab it there, blend it all over, and bam — a face is completely transformed. And, these vloggers/'grammers are using some seriously crazy techniques — not exactly child's play.

But while some of the transformations are awe-inspiring, others are downright insane. You have to do a double-take (and, let's be honest, maybe even squint and tilt your head) to verify that the person in the "before" photo is the same as the person in the "after" photo. This is makeup magic at its most intense.

Ahead, we've rounded up a few of these crazy Insta-makeovers. Prepare for some high-level visual trickery.
