Guy Uses Mind-Melting Makeup Skills to Transform Into ‘Game of … – The Daily Dot
We have nothing but admiration for fandom makeup artists. The cartoon-style Silver Surfer guy has to be seen to be believed, and someone even brought the Simpsons characters to life. But alongside cartoons and fantasy cosplay, there’s something eerily impressive about transforming yourself into another human being.
Filipino actor and makeup aficionado Paolo Ballesteros does just that. He’s able to disguise himself as the main characters from Game of Thrones, painting his face to resemble characters like Margaery Tyrell and Cersei Lannister.

Ballesteros is a master of makeup techniques, known for creating pitch-perfect impersonations of celebrities. Last year, he actually attended Tokyo Film Festival in disguise as Angelina Jolie.

This settles it: contouring makeup is basically magic.
