Looking like your favorite celebrity no longer requires intensive cosmetic surgery thanks to the skills of hyper-realistic painter Hikaru Cho. The Japanese artist transforms regular guys into Hollywood celebrities in her latest painted study.

"Armed with her transformative paintbrush, Hikaru Cho paints muscles over fat, chiseled cheek bones over fuller faces and colored eyes over closed eyelids."

These impressive transformations are almost too amazing to believe and range from a Tom Cruise inspired makeup look to a makeup body transformation that turns a subject's flabby midriff into a set of flat abs. Illustrating the power of cosmetics, these living art pieces subtly poke fun at celeb culture and prove that any look is achievable with the help of some makeup magic.
