Photographer Ilya Rathman from Kiev, Ukraine created this stunning makeup arts series featuring a variety of makeup looks on one woman. The photography series begins with her bare, naked face without makeup. It’s clear that some photoshopping was used to enhance her natural features and create a more intense impact, but the purpose was to show the model as a bare canvas.

The following image is extremely dramatic but sexy. Her red lips and plum eyelids are a perfect look for the holiday season. Her hair is in an up-do with strands of hair falling around her face. The next image is an even more dramatic goth-inspired look. Heavily lined black eyebrows and eyeliner, dark wine colored lips and crimped hair give her a Lolita-like appearance. The third image is more artistic, with her eyes emphasized but her skin washed out with a pink tinge. This look is probably a milder version of what Lady Gaga would wear.

The rest of the images in the series give the model different personalities with the variety of makeup looks. It’s amazing how cosmetics alone can practically turn you into a different person.
