There are many talented makeup artists out there who create absolutely stunning transformations every day. But Italian-based makeup artist and portrait painter Lucia Pittalis takes things to an astronomically high level.
She uses her knowledge from studying the classics and art in school — along with incredible talent and technique — to defy age and gender and alter her appearance into iconic film and music icons like Bette Davis, Rocky, and Keith Richards.
It’s more than just putting on a look for Pittalis.
She also captures their essence by studying the characters — watching photos, movies, videos, and saving frames where necessary.
“I think how it can be adapted on my face,” she said. “It is a kind of acting process before. I must be that character. Then I put on background music related to that character to be in the mood and I start to watch myself in the mirror.”
And what she sees looking back at her is nothing short of stunning.
Everyone knows “the look” that a mom can give her kids to put a little bit of fear into their hearts. But Nikki Shelley of Rugby, Warwickshire, takes things to an extreme.

It’s like Yoda always said, “Tattoo or not tattoo. There is no try.”
At least that’s what these people took it to mean…

It’s hard to know what’s real and what’s fake on the Internet, given the fact that everyone has access to Photoshop or image manipulation tools.
But sometimes nature provides a view that no Instagram filter can match and, lucky for all of us, we get to see them.
