Chinese blogger transforms herself into Mona Lisa using makeup, result mesmerizes the internet
Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is the most famous and celebrated painting this world has seen. The Italian Renaissance painting has been recreated numerous times by several artists over the world as a mark of respect and homage to the original piece.
While the original remains a masterstroke by its own rights, in another stunning tribute to the much-revered artwork, a makeup blogger’s Mona Lisa makeover has exploded on Chinese social media.
27-year-old He Yuya, a makeup artist has transformed herself as the Vinci’s famous oil-painting Mona Lisa and uploaded it on Chinese video app MiaoPai. She took up the challenge after her followers dared her to create a real-life Mona Lisa, jokingly.
The result turned out to be extraordinarily perfect with identical facial features and shadows which she brought in using only makeup.
The video collected a whopping 800,000+ views on the MiaoPai and over 20 million on Dou Yin.
“I appreciate all the support I’ve received and I’m so happy that viewers like the transformation.” she told Daily China.
