Makeup can be a great way to highlight your features or hide something we are insecure about. However, some are able to take it to a whole new level and turn makeup into a magical form of self-expression and art. Mimi Choi is one of them – with her captivating visual magic, the artist has amassed 1.7 million followers on Instagram.
Surprisingly, her creations are often inspired by scenes she sees in episodes of sleep paralysis: “In addition to not being able to move, I see things,” she says. “When I do makeup on a stage, it never happens again.”
