Arber Bytyqi (previously here, here, and here) is a professional makeup artist and beauty influencer with over 450,000 followers on social media. But his success and popularity didn't happen overnight. The two were long in the making.

Arber knew what he wanted to do pretty much since his childhood but his family opposed it. "In our culture, a male in the beauty industry is considered taboo," he explained in an earlier Bored Panda interview. "So, at first, I got a master’s degree in economics, and only then did I follow my dream and started working as a makeup artist."

Years later, he is as passionate as ever, working with more than one thousand brides per year. Here are some of the latest transformations that Arber and his team have done.

She doesn't even look like herself anymore...

"When I meet my client, the first question I ask is what kind of occasion are they getting their makeup done for," Arner once told us. "I also ask my clients if they have any specific requests. For example, if they want a natural or dramatic look.

"Then I ask them [to show me] the dress that they are going to wear. The design of the dress and its details reveal the style of the look the client is going for. Then, I analyze their facial features."

She's beautiful without make-up. With make-up they all look the same. If you put them in a line, most grooms wouldn't recognize their wife. It's okay to use more make-up on your wedding day, but why do you want to look nothing like you normally look?

When the pandemic isn't ravaging the world, Arber and his team usually serve more than one thousand brides in a year. "The summer, in particular, is a very demanding season for wedding makeup. During this period, we serve as many as 60 or more clients daily."

Naturally, such a big client base requires a lot of help. Arber's team consists of 25 people (15 makeup artists and 10 hair stylists).

Photoshop. No amount of makeup (unless it’s prosthetics) will change the shape of your chin and eyes and neither will it whiten your eyes and teeth like that.

Was this a full body makeup or just photoshop?

Simple elegant makeup would’ve worked wonders here. She looks horribly photoshoped in the after pic.

But he has trained even more people. "Some of my students are working part-time and some are full-time employees."

Arber has enough resources to attend to up to 100 clients per day. "We start our workdays early in the morning and make sure our schedule has absolutely no impact on the quality of services, satisfying all of their needs." Of course, the coronavirus has had its toll on these numbers. "In the Balkans, the wedding is one of the biggest events in a person's life. But due to the pandemic, a lot of them were postponed," Arber said.

I love the lip color on this one, not distracting but beautiful.

Again with the photoshop! Urgh. Thinned her face (funny how the slight double chin disappears and her chin becomes slightly pointier) and overuse of the blur tool. These are all beautiful women, teach them how to enhance what they have not change what they have, this whole BP post is very disingenuous and actually quite harmful to women.

Obviously it's her wedding day and she can have her makeup however she wants it, but I think it's a bit of a shame that she didn't go for a more natural look. This makeup kind of obscures her natural beauty.

What the f*ck? Instead of this metric shitton of makeup, she could get a custom mask done, that'd be about as natural as this and it'd be reusable.

The ones with their hair down all pretty much have the same hairdo as well. Attack of the Clones.

The results are pretty, but they all look the same. None of them look recognizable and like themselves anymore.
