Talented make-up artist transforms model into Cristiano Ronaldo doppelganger

This talented makeup artist is really turning heads with her work, transforming this female model into none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite being of the opposite sex to the five-time Ballon d’Or, Marina Mamic had no trouble turning her subject into the Real Madrid and Portugal star.

After applying a base layer of makeup before, skilled Marina then adds shadowing to bring out the football-cum-model’s famous facial features.

Marina, 28, lives in Zagreb, Croatia, and has built up a large following on social media, thanks to her celebrity transformations.

As well as creating such works on others – like her friend, Filipa, for the Ronaldo piece – Marina creates makeup illusions on herself.

In the past, the artist has converted herself into the likes of Julia Roberts, Johnny Depp, Gwen Stefani and Al Pacino.

Each work, Marina said, usually takes her between six and eight hours on average, depending on the complexity.

Moving forward, she hopes to create more celebrity looks, an approach that she hopes could one day allow her to enter the film industry.

Marina, who was born in Derventa, Bosnia, said: “There was so many positive reactions.

“I never thought that my transformations would be shared all over the world, so I am shocked when that happens.

“I was, and still am, doing this just because I love it.

“I do it for fun and because I love to entertain and inspire people.

“The only thing that changed is that I entertain more followers now than I did before, and I have a bigger chance of getting noticed and, therefore, achieve my biggest dream, which is to work in the film industry.”
