Dain Yoon is a talented cosmetic artist that specializes in creating surrealist makeup looks that distort the natural contours and shape of the face. The designs creatively explore concepts behind what an ideal selfie is meant to look like, by distorting commonly held notions of beauty.

Yoon features her makeup looks on her Instagram page where she utilizes the power of body paint, makeup and acrylic to completely redefine the aesthetic of her visage. She plays around with different body parts such as her hands to stand in for elements of her face, such as the eyes or mouth. The blurring of different body parts renders the makeup looks as optical illusions since they look incredibly realistic, yet unfamiliar at the same time.
