Have You Seen This? Makeup artist's celebrity transformations are scary good

Posted July 27

THE MAKEUP DRAWER — Not everyone is good at makeup.

When you walk into an Ulta or Sephora, you’re bombarded by so many products, it’s hard to know where to start. What’s a highlighter? Do I really need a setting spray? How many eye shadows can one person possibly own?

The great thing about YouTube is it’s become the ultimate resource for anyone looking to learn a skill or attempt something new. You can watch a video tutorial about how to change a tire or discover how to apply a smoky eye look.

There are individuals who turn to the internet for makeup 101 (*raises hand*) and then there are artists who have already obtained their nose powdering doctorate, and this YouTube video demonstrates the latter.

UK native Elliot Joseph Rentz is able to transform into all manner of celebrities using just his makeup palette, and it is stunning.

Rentz — whose Instagram account has gone viral — regularly posts transformation clips showing how he uses makeup to look shockingly similar to all manner of celebrities without the use of prosthetics.

His Michael Jackson, Meryl Streep, Celine Dion, Ellen Degeneres and Goldie Hawn transformations would be enough to make anybody do a double take if they passed him on the street in full makeup.

Meanwhile, I’m over here wondering how anyone effectively does a winged liner without looking like a toddler got a hold of a Sharpie.

Which makeover is your favorite?
