Makeup. Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that umpteen number of people have made a career out of their massive social media following based on it. From makeup based on zodiac looks to feather brows, all the way to glittering butts and rainbow-faces, we’ve seen it all. All of that, however, is about to turn conventional after you see what this man does with his makeup skills.

David from UK is a self-taught make up artist, as his Instagram bio tells us and his make up skills lead to creations which are way too realistic for our eyes. Do not underestimate his skills on the basis of him being self-taught though, he has got some major talent and his makeup does not produce any of the typical results. From pencils going through his nose to pins causing blood to trickle down, all this guy needs is some makeup to produce effects that could any day beat animation and VFX.

Going by the name ‘sfx_by_david’, he has 46.7k followers and here’s a glimpse of his extraordinary Instagram account.
