These modified celebrity photographs are a fantastic example of the fun you can have with makeup—that’s right, these were not created with photo manipulation programs!

Professional make-up artist Kevyn Aucoin did such an impressive job turning modern celebrities like Calista Flockhart into Old Hollywood celebrities like Audrey Hepburn, he was able to publish an entire book, Face Forward, filled with the images.

Other stars he modified with makeup include Gwyneth Paltrow as James Dean, Gina Gershon as Sophia Loren, Christina Ricci into Edith Piaf, Tori Amos into Mary Queen of Scots, Winona Ryder as Elizabeth Taylor, Celine Dion into Maria Callas, Liza Minnelli into Marilyn Monroe, Hilary Swank into Raquel Welch and Martha Stewart into Veronica Lake.

Kevyn Aucoin died in 2002 at age 40, so unfortunately we’ll never get a chance to see him turn Britney Spears into Brigitte Bardot, but we can enjoy the work he did do.
