Inc-rein-dible: Make-up artist transforms her own face into a stunning lifelike reindeer
An ingenious make-up artist has transformed her OWN FACE into that of a stunningly life-like REINDEER.
Makeup artist Maria Malone-Guerbaa usually focuses on movie stars but was sucked in by the festive spirit.
Not only does she reproduce these inc-rein-dibly realistic faces, she does it on herself.
The 40-year-old mother-of-two from London doesn’t use any prosthetics or special effects only her brushes and kryolan paints to recreate antlers, bright eyes and nose.
Maria said: “Everyone always does Santa Claus or elves and I just wanted to do something different.
“Reindeer are such beautiful creatures and I wanted to see if I could become one with the power of makeup illusion.
“It took over two hours to build up the shading to create the illusion of depth and hair.
“The makeup effect has received awesome attention and I’m delighted to have inspired so many.”
Maria is a freelance makeup and hair artist for films and TV and her work has gone viral after she posted some of her pictures online.
She’s always had a passion for art but only started on her celebrity lookalikes when she started doing face painting for parties for her children – Sophia, 12, and Adam, 10.
