Tiene 31 años y es de Vancouver, en Canadá. Realiza unos maquillajes que no pasan, ni mucho menos, desapercibidos. Te dejarán sin palabras. No es de extrañar que en su cuenta de Instagram tenga más de 152.000 seguidores de todo el mundo que alucinan con sus más de 3.500 fotografías.
Mimi Choi crea ilusiones hiperrealistas sobre la piel de las personas. Es capaz de convertir una mano en una pieza de sushi, o poner varios pares de ojos y bocas en una cara.
Según explica, se inspira principalmente en su propio entorno, en la fotografía, en las pinturas y en las emociones. Intenta no dejarse influenciar por otros maquilladores y busca, sobre todo, un trabajo original y único.
Sus trabajos hablan por sí solos, aquí os dejamos una pequeña muestra.
FRESHY FRESHHH 🔪💦 All my fishy creations so far. 🐟🍣🦐 Not responsible for broken phones. 😝 I painted all of these on my own hand using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors, @suvabeauty Hydra Liners and @stilacosmetics intense black stay-all-day liquid eyeliner. What sushi do you want to see next? #salmonsushi #ebisushi #alaskaroll #fish #handpainting
Last one of this look I did on @lahbra 🖤😈💥 I used @patmcgrathreal #METALMORPHOSIS005 Everything Kit for the "cutouts", #LUST004 Kit for the lips and MAKE UP FOR EVER @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca kohl liners and ink liner for painting the extra eyes. Inspired by cardboard cutouts and digitally-manipulated photographs.

Jet lagged 😵 • This is #makeup • An extension of my #MELT makeup using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors, @stilacosmetics intense black stay-all-day liquid eyeliner and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca liquid matte lipsticks. Honestly too tired to produce anything of quality or even take a decent photo but I was dying to create so at least I got it out of my system. Goodnight. 🌜#loopyaf
Sushi chef in the making 👩🏻🍳 What kind of sushi roll is this? 🤔This is #MAKEUP on my hand 🍣 • #SUSHIROLL makeup illusion using @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @suvabeauty Hydra liners. Stay tuned for final product! 🤣 #alaskaroll #sushiroll #illusionmakeup #handpainting #handmakeup #sushi #workinprogress
This is #makeup • WORLDS WITHIN ME • Starting #2017 with this little layered-face makeup illusion inspired by a surreal drawing by @miles_art — Thanks @ahlam_mallak for the suggestion! ❤️ _________ Products used: @kryolanofficial aquacolors, @suvabeauty hydra liners and @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca eyeshadows. Lashes are @houseoflashes "Mon Chéri"
Wow 61K+ likes on this look so far! 😳 Thanks for the overwhelming amount of support and love everyone! ❤ For those who is wondering if this was Photoshopped — No, this was done with just #makeup, please see the video in the last post. 😊 Unfortunately, I do not do video tutorials because most of the time I don't actually know what I'm trying to achieve or if it's even going to be successful at all. 😅 I really enjoy creating spontaneously so planning tutorials would not give me the same kind of satisfaction. I hope that my strange creatives can inspire people to think out of the box and create a style and trend that is unique to themselves. 🌟
My eyes are up here 👀👆🏼• "INCEPTION" #makeup illusion inspired by a photoshopped image of Paul Ryan 😅. (See the post before) Used @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_canada pencil and liquid eyeliners plus matte eyeshadows for this look. Lashes are all @houseoflashes "Knockout" falsies except for the littlest ones that I had to paint on. All hand-painted, took 3 hours. 🐼
My very sweet and long holiday has officially ended and I'm again back in hamster wheel working mode. 🌚 I think my most recent creative deserves one last post because I put 5 dizzying hours into it. I even had to take a small nap in between to prevent my eyes from staying crossed forever. 😶 ________________ LACE UP 👟👁🎀 • Shoelace quadruple eye #makeup illusion using @suvabeauty Hydra liners, @nyxcosmetics @nyxcosmetics_canada liquid eyeliners, @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca artist eyeshadows and @houseoflashes "Knockout" false lashes. All makeup, no Photoshop.
If I could go back in time and tell my 20-year-old self anything: it is that terrible things will happen, but they will break you to save you. You will never be as thin or as beautiful as you have always wanted to be, but it is okay because someday you'll realize there are more valuable and attractive things about you than your exterior. The boy who took your hand when you were 19 will ask you to marry him one day. You two will hurt each other and have a lot to learn together in the years to come but don't ever doubt his love for you. Don't be so hard on yourself. You're trying your best and that's enough. You will keep messing up but you're not a disappointment. One day when you least expect it, you will finally find something that you're good at and it will reveal you. You will figure it out in your late twenties so just be patient. Everything happens for the best. Any pain will eventually fade no matter how unbearable it seems to be at the moment. Always be a positive energy. Treasure every moment because it could be the last. Tell people that you love them. Make decisions out of hope and not your fear. Your parents will tell you things that you don't want to hear but they are actually right. Family is the most important. You can be happy if you choose to be. You will eventually love yourself. You will be alright. x ____________ BROKEN • A #brokenface makeup #illusion using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Aqua lip liners, Aqua XL pencils, artist shadows, Aqua brow and @velourlashesofficial "Whispie Sweet Nothings". All #makeup, no Photoshop.
Another #camouflage makeup illusion done on my bff @dada.rai for @instagram's weekend hashtag project #WHPdisguise 🌺🌱 It was totally worth skipping lunch for! Thank you @dada.rai for always being a trooper and letting me paint on your hair again. 😂 • Done with @kryolanofficial Aquacolors and @suvabeauty Hydra liners
THIS IS #MAKEUP • No Photoshop is used, video coming next • Severed arm makeup #illusion using @makeupforeverofficial @makeupforeverca Flash Palette and @kryolanofficial Aquacolor in white. 🔪💉🤛🏼 Some of my @Blancheworld students have been very curious about how I do these things to myself so I decided to show them.
