Mimi Choi is a Vancouver based makeup artist known for beautiful surrealist optical illusions. According to Bored Panda she draws inspiration from artists, famous and up and coming, as well as her experiences with sleep paralysis.
As Mimi explains:
"I've always been arty and had done bridal makeup before, which people really liked. I'd not done anything as crazy as the work I do now, though ... I wanted to do something different for October 31, so I had a look on Instagram and found a photo of a woman, who looked like her face had cracked. I'd never tried any kind of crazy make-up on myself, but I just got out my black and white eyeliner and gave it a go."
And the rest is history.
