Meet Dain Yoon. She’s a South Korean illusion makeup artist, and her incredible skills will blow you away. Her face and body paintings may look photoshopped, but they are all 100% real!
The 24-year-old has attended a prestigious arts high school and has a degree in stage design, but it’s her collection of selfies on Instagram that is garnering her the most attention. The photographs are so incredibly mindboggling that trying to figure out exactly how Dain Yoon accomplished such a look will totally screw with your brain.
Yoon believes that her body art mirrors how people see the world. “People live in illusions,” she says. “People see everything in their own subjective way.” Yoon certainly does, that’s for sure. Her unique illusion art is getting a lot of attention, garnering her appearances on television such as on the Ellen Degeneres Show.
Scroll through the list of some of her best work. I guarantee you’ll be scratching your head afterword.
1. What’s going on?
Yoon’s work is absolutely mind-blowing!
2. What’s inside?
I think this is one of my favorites.
3. Double vision
I bet she goes through a lot of lipstick!
It’s all real and created with makeup. There is no digital manipulation whatsoever.
5. She’s come undone
That’s how I feel when I’m unraveling.
Did you know she totally freaked Ellen DeGeneres out on her show? Yoon was a guest on Ellen’s talk show last year and showed up in full illusion makeup. After her interview, she also painted herself into the background of Ellen’s set!
If you’d like to see the interview, then you’re in luck. It’s posted below. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
