Vadim Andreev is a miracle worker makeup artist who's trusted by many of his clients across Russia, including Instagram supermodel Natasha Koroleva, among others. Andreev loves to upload his progress on his social media, showing the old and the new look side by side, which he calls "a Cinderella effect," by which he means that he enables his clients to get the overall style that they want and deserve.
He has told Bored Panda one of a few reasons why he likes to do these comparisons: "I always liked the idea of magical transformation. I always want people to feel wonderful, refreshed, and beautiful. By creating my before and after photos, I wanted to show that we can look different and express our beauty in different ways, and it’s fun."
He's one of the lucky few who have found their passion at a young age and who's still happy and proud to do his job. "I started doing makeup when I was a child. I came to makeup school at 16 years old. Now, after 20 years passed, I still feel happy and excited when I do my glam work."
And he doesn't think he's the only one able to do these magical transformations. He believes that it is within every woman's grasp. "Every girl can feel amazing by changing her appearance and revealing something new inside herself, but still remain who she is," said Vadim Andreev.
