These creepy photos of makeup artist are not Photoshopped at all

Photoshop and makeup are both known for their powers in drastically altering someone's appearances -- but which is actually the more triumphant tool?

For Vancouver-based makeup artist Mimi Choi, it appears to be the latter.

With surrealist expert Salvador Dali as her inspiration, Mimi uses the human face and body as her canvas, and makeup as her brush.

Although it is not the first time the Instagram star has made headlines with her incredible skills, she recently took the Internet by storm again with her latest work: Mimi with a 'hole' in her face.

The 3D look, made up of red and black paints disguising Mimi's features, took one and a half hours to accomplish.

Mimi also wrote in a second Instagram post: "It's all fun and games until someone tries to throw a ball through your face."
