Bored Panda already wrote about this cool makeup artist (here and here), but she deserves all the attention because her optical illusion makeup looks keep on blowing people's minds.

Mimi Choi is a Vancouver-based professional makeup artist. She creates intricate, surreal, illusion makeup looks inspired by other people's art, surreal paintings from artists such as Salvador Dali and her own experiences during sleep paralysis that Mimi herself experiences from time to time. These vivid hallucinations fuel her imagination and add an additional layer to the creepy body art.

Take a look at her newest makeup ideas below and let us know if any of these optical illusions made chills run down your spine.

I wonder if she did eyes on the back of her head when she was a teacher.

She does an amazing job at blending her eyes into the rest of her face!!!! That is usually the giveaway in this type of art but on every one she does an incredible job at camouflaging her eyes
