She left her job to fulfill her dream - now she is amazing the world with completely crazy makeup work
The history of makeup begins from ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece.
Both men and women would use makeup during these periods. In modern history, makeup was mainly attributed as a tool for women to improve their appearance.
But the makeup has come through a road since the days of Pharaoh and women who apply lipstick and eyeliner. Becoming a makeup artist is something that requires special talent.
One of the women who have this talent is Mimi Choi. To call her a professional makeup artist will even do her injustice - she is more like a professional makeup magician. The talented woman creates crazy optical illusions and has become famous worldwide.
You would think that Mimi works as a makeup artist, but that's not the case. She was a kindergarten teacher for 3 years, but eventually she felt she couldn't express herself in the way she would like.
“I felt my creativity was not expressed. I liked to be a kindergarten teacher, but I wasn't happy”, she said. "I needed a new challenge".
In the spare time after work, Mimi would practice various makeup techniques.
"I have always been creative and I have made brides in the past, and people really liked it", she said. "I wanted to do something different fot halloween, so I looked on Instagram and found a picture of a woman who seemed to be cracked".
That was the moment her makeup career got a turnaround and she began to do jobs of upscale and crazy optical illusions that impressed people all over the world. She has almost 300,000 followers on Instagram.
