Optical Illusion of Make-up

Alexander Khokhlov and Valeriya Kutsan, Moscow-based photographer and makeup artist created a series of portraits that highlight and transform natural features of their models.

The portraits remind me of some works by Andy Warhol and popular 2D art sketches. Kutsan used various techniques to transform faces into water color and oil canvas, sketches and even graphic art. The artists used facial lines to twist the faces into these masterpieces.

Imagine how much time they had to spend to apply the make-up on model’s faces.
