Eye Can’t Believe It – Make-up Artist Transforms Face Into Impressive Set Of Illusions
A creative make-up artist – who spends up to NINE HOURS transforming her face – has showcased her impressive illusions.
Romanie-Jade Tulloch, 20 – a self-taught makeup artist – has created a bunch of unbelievable looks that play tricks on the viewers eye.
Romanie-Jade, from Nottingham, studied fine art at college for two years but opted out of university to pursue her career to become a full-time YouTube and beauty influencer.
Romanie-Jade – who is known as ‘cakefacerj’ on social media – says her most recent inspiration coming from a blender and that she spent nine hours to warp her face with make-up.
She said: “My surroundings inspire me, I can be walking through the park and see a pond and that is enough for me to give it a go on my face.
“I like to step out of my comfort zone and try anything and everything, it might be Where’s Wally on my face or a food blender.
“I wanted to show people that you can use makeup to do so much more, it doesn’t always have to be to make yourself look pretty.
“The longest I have spent on one illusion was 13 hours as I tried to create an Avengers themed look.
“The looks usually take an average of five hours and I always leave my mouth until last so I can snack throughout.
“Once I am in the zone, I find it hard to get out so it never really feels like a long time when doing the looks.”
Romanie-Jade boasts over 400k followers on Instagram and uploads an array of unique looks daily.
She added: “I had the option to go to university, but I wanted to get stuck in with starting my career in art straight away.
“I went on a self-employment course to become a freelance makeup artist, and in this time my page blew up and I went from 3000 followers to 16,000 in a week.
“I took the plunge and use the loan I received from Princess Trust to buy studio equipment to become a full-time beauty influencer as I realised, I can earn money doing what I love.
“I wanted to stand out as different in the makeup industry, so I started experimenting with unusual eye makeup illusions.
“I recognised a gap in the market, other pages were posting mainly contouring and smokey eyes, so I decided to switch it up and be arty with my looks.
“A small percentage of people can be negative, but on the whole, I’ve had a really positive response and I’ve gained a large following since my looks stared trending which I’m so grateful for.”
