A compilation of my previous #makeup illusions by Viral Thread on Facebook ⚡️❤️ • The one shown at 11 seconds was a collaboration with motion artist @theglitch.og who made my makeup move using digital effects. Some people have a hard time believing that my makeup isn't CG – truth is, I painted every single one of them by hand and I don't need to prove that to anybody by doing tutorials. My goal never was to impress anybody but myself. I do these illusions to challenge myself and better my skills, and most importantly, because they make me happy. It's always been this way and will always be. 🙃 Thanks to my 220K followers for following this strange art journey of mine! 😘 #gratitude #viralthread #mimles #mimichoimakeup
She's a bitch. 🐕 • This is #makeup • Dog #muzzle makeup using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and Supracolors. Inspired by the photoshopped images by surreal artist Sabastian Niedlich. Just a normal dog with human eyes, hair, body and 0 top teeth. 😛 Thought this was funny, not meant to be realistic. 🙃 Had to paint something on myself after a long week of working on others, even though it's 2AM and my body is telling me to lie my ass down and sleep. 🐶 #dothingsforyourself
FACE ON CRACK 🔥 Same same but different. 👹Another version of my BROKEN FACE makeup #illusion using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Aqua lip liners, Aqua XL pencils, artist shadows, Aqua brow and @velourlashesofficial "Whispie Sweet Nothings". All #makeup, no Photoshop. If 2016 was 3/10 bizarre, 2017 will be 6/10. #fleekface #toomuchcoffee

SPLIT • This is #makeup • When I was little, my mama used to tell me that if I kept pinching my cheeks this way, my face would eventually split in half. I never listened to her. 🙄 • A little SPLIT FACE makeup #illusion done using @mehronmakeup Paradise face & body makeup in white + black, and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca HD foundation palette. Initially I just wanted to test out how black my new @mehronmakeup Paradise makeup is… Oh my gaaa I love it! Thanks @mehronmakeup! 🖤 #alwayslistentomom #hollowhead

"DRIP" MAKEUP ILLUSION hand-painted using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Acrylip 501 • Concept suggested by my fiancé @andrewy527, inspired by the amazing painter @mikedargas2014 ___________________ One year ago today, my grandpa passed away. It was by far the most painful thing I've ever had to endure but throughout this year, I've constantly felt his presence and guidance. I strongly feel that my grandpa has transferred some of his creativity and energy to me, and he's around cheering me on everyday. In 2017 and the years forward, my new year's resolution will always be to love the ones that I care about the best that I can and to constantly strive to be the best version of myself in every aspect. What's yours? ❤️#newyearsresolution

NOT PERFECT LIKE A ROBOT | This post is for those who are suffering from eating disorders silently. I do not have an eating disorder but I did when I was a teenager and I never told anybody not because I was ashamed of it – but because I felt I did not look like someone who was suffering from an E.D. and I was embarrassed. I didn't qualify because I didn't think I was thin enough and suffered silently for years. Although I appeared to be happy and somewhat healthy (I was under 100lbs at my lowest but I looked average among my tiny Asian friends), I often felt worthless and ashamed whenever I was alone. I had an E.D. because weight was the only thing that I felt I had total control over. It was the one thing that I really wanted to master because every thing else in my life was not going the direction that I wanted it to. But I failed even at that because I did not even get close to my goal; I failed because I would binge eat at 3AM from severe hunger; I failed because I was imperfect inside and outside. I could not ask for help because I was so ashamed but I was sick, mentally and physically. I cried a lot. Fortunately, I finally got the courage up to find support online and eventually recovered. And now at age 31, I have learned to embrace myself completely and nobody would have guessed that I had an eating disorder because I enjoy food so much. If you are experiencing what I have gone through when I was younger, I just want to let you know that you are not alone and that you do not need to look a certain way or weigh a certain number to ask for help. I also want to let you know that hitting that unhealthy goal weight would not make you feel better about yourself – it would only make you want to set another unrealistic goal and the dissatisfaction is never-ending. Beauty is unstable – even the most beautiful woman will eventually get old and lose her physical attractiveness. But if you focus on your health and building on your qualities inside, they will only get better as you age and the reward is definite. You do not need to be perfect to be successful and nobody ever expects you to be. ❤️ •••••• Robot hand #makeup using @patmcgrathreal Metalmorphosis 005
And the porcelain girl danced. 💃🏻 Hand-painted FLORAL PORCELAIN lip art using @suvabeauty Hydra liners in Tracksuit and Space Panda and nail art materials from @daiso_official. Inspired by the beautiful oil paintings of @relmxx. 💙 This might have been my 4th time doing porcelain-inspired #makeup. I'm clearly obsessed with #pottery art because it reminds me of my grandpa. Anyway, I'll be leaving for Paris in a few hours so that means I won't be posting much makeup in the next 2 weeks! 🛩 I think it will be good to allow my brain to take a break and absorb all the amazing art in Europe. 😍 À bientôt!
This is #makeup • OCTOPUS LIP ART 🐙 hand-painted using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and Supracolors. Shaded using Kryolan matte eyeshadows. This is inspired by and dedicated to my fiancé @andrewy527 who has been asking me to do #octopus for the longest time! He's the person behind a lot of my strange creations and inspires me more than anybody in this world. Thank you for pulling me out of my black pit over and over again and always believing in me. ❤️
