Faces cleverly disguised as art paintings with 2D makeup

Photographer Alexander Khokhlov’s 2D or not 2D series with make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan has been making the rounds on our social media feeds, and if you haven’t seen the photos of models getting the 2D makeover, well, look, and be blown away. Kutsan used various face painting techniques to emulate art styles such as sketching, graphic design, water colour and oilpainting, The only thing that gives the illusions away are the unpainted eyes of the models in each shot.
