I was thinking the same thing… I’v seen some other “makeup” pics like this where a woman is basically painting a picture of Harrison Ford or Sylvester Stallone onto the front of her face, and I can’t imagine it looks like anything at all once her face is turned even a few degrees from head on.

Dead clever stuff. There are so many talented people out there in make-up, cosplay and nail-art land, that I don’t feel I’m letting our species down by not trying at all.
