professional makeup artist and instructor mimi choi’s (@mimles ) double take-worthy illusionist looks are inspired by textures, patterns, digital art, surrealist artists (like salvador dali)… and her sleep paralysis. “this is a condition in which my body is asleep, but my mind is conscious, and i experience vivid and often frightening hallucinations,” explains mimi, who was born in macau and immigrated to vancouver when she was 13. “i use these episodes to fuel my creativity. the odd thing is that once i paint a certain look, i stop experiencing that particular hallucination. my art is definitely therapeutic for me!”
watch mimi apply one of her signature looks on our story and our igtv channel. to watch igtv, update your app, then look for the new icon in the top right corner of feed.
