    This Makeup Artist Creates The Trippiest Illusions You Can't Get Enough Of

    A body of work — literally.

    Dain Yoon is a 25-year-old artist from South Korea who graduated from Korea National University in February 2017. Through her art, she has displayed the kind of talent you can’t exactly teach.

    She told BuzzFeed that the day she graduated is when she decided to become a full-time artist.

    “After my works got recognition back in May 2016, I knew I wanted to make art, rather than just makeup.”

    Dain said she wants to make sure to always do something new and keep reinventing herself literally and figuratively with every piece of art she does on herself.

    “That’s why I always try different types of illusion paintings rather than one consistent style.”

    Sometimes she bypasses the face and body altogether and opts for what she calls “hair nails."

    She also does oil painting on leather, and even performance art, like this large group of women in pink body paint with huge eyes painted right in the middle of their chests.
