This is #makeup • Be careful what you wish for💫🌠 —— CELESTIAL #illusion makeup demo for Make-Up Artist Magazine @makeupartistmag at IMATS Toronto @imatsofficial on the beautiful @vicbrocca today! Thank you to everyone of you who came by to say hi and gave me hugs! 🤗 This took me 6 hours to paint. A lot of you asked me how I am able to hand-paint all of my intricate illusions... Patience, A LOT of patience and coffee I tell ya. There’s really no way around it. You just have to tough it out and keep going and trust that the hard work will pay off in the end. The final image and learning experiences are always worth it. 🙏🏼 Video coming next! @michaelkeyreal

A little illusion 👁 demo for one of my 3 mini workshops with @makeupforeverca today! I decided to demonstrate the good old realistic #eye painting because it embodies all the key concepts of highlighting, shading, precision and detailing in every category of makeup, not just #illusionmakeup. I also got to do a creative for @ellecanada which I can’t reveal until #Halloween! Thanks to all of you who attended my workshops today and to @makeupforeverca for hosting such a lovely learning and sharing experience! I can’t wait to meet more of you in the next few days! 🙏🏼❤️💋 ________________________________________________

Who is ready for my MIMI CHOI ILLUSION PALETTE by @mehronmakeup? 👻 My palette includes 4 shades of Celebré Pro-HD, 4 shades of Paradise Makeup AQ, 2 shades of E.Y.E. Powder Matte, and 2 shades of Intense Pro Powder. I carefully hand-picked each one of these shades because they are the perfect colours for shading and highlighting. Ever since I got my hands on it, I’ve been using this palette over and over again for my illusions. All of the #makeup looks showcased in this video have been painted with my custom palette and I can’t wait to share this product with you all very soon! —— COMING FALL 2018 🎨

EYECON — MIMLES COVER FOR TUSH ISSUE 43 👁💫 My collaboration with @tushmagazine was hands down one of the most memorable and fun photoshoots I’ve ever had. I definitely ruined some people’s day as I walked back to the hotel rocking all 8 of my 👁s. Most people tried to avoid eye contact while some stared for long periods of time. What would you do if you saw someone like this on the streets?

Snippets of the process for my new piece inspired by Salvador Dali’s “Galatea of the Spheres”. I was fortunate enough to see Dali’s work up-close at @museoreinasofia in Madrid and I’ve been feeling very inspired since. Traveling always brings me new ideas for my work and I can’t wait to share them with you all soon. 🎨🌍💫

A feature by @cosmopolitan and @goodhousekeeping — fast-forwarded version. 🙏🏼❤️💥 I’m finally back home and excited to tackle some looks within this week that I’m here! I’m curious to see how many I can create within this time frame because I have so many ideas pent up from the inspirations I gathered while traveling. I always feel so impatient about expressing them. Luckily my process usually doesn’t take longer than 7 hours altogether because I paint directly onto the skin according to the vision in my head without planning or sketching it out first. Who paints spontaneously and prefers it that way like me too? 🎨🖌
