There are chameleons among us—people that can shift their looks and trick you into believing that they are who they're not. The last sentence is not an excerpt from a Black Mirror episode or a new X-Men movie (Mystique prequel, maybe?). These people are just normal folk with an extra bit of talent, like the one featured in today's story.
Ellie Lewis, who's an aspiring makeup artist, is one of those "chameleons" that can seemingly change her face into anything she wants. She's Cruella De Vil or a Sagittarius in one of the pictures, and an alien or Fiona in another. She also did Joe Exotic and Joe Goldberg impressions that are pretty spot-on.
Hailing from Merseyside, England, now living and working in Manchester, England, the artist shared her journey in makeup artistry. "I always loved to paint in the traditional sense with painting with acrylics, etc. and when I studied filmmaking at university I did a year abroad in Toronto, where I offered to do makeup for some student films just for fun and I completely fell in love with it!" she told Bored Panda.
Once she fell in love with it, she couldn't let it go. More than half a year ago, she even received her official makeup artist certificate. "I did my makeup training as soon as I finished uni so that I could do it professionally, but all of the crazy/creative looks on my Instagram I do for fun in my spare time because I just love creating them!" She certainly does. Do you love seeing them as much as she loves creating them? Share in the comments below and enjoy!
