Paolo Ballesteros Kim Kardashian TransformationMakeup can be used to create a lot of impressive things. You can use it to come up with things so gross that they are impressive (see this severed finger, if you dare) or it can completely transform you into a new character. One person who has mastered the art of transformation is Paolo Ballesteros. Accordingly to the Daily Mail, Paolo is an actor and TV host from the Philippines. He uses his impressive makeup skills, wigs, and contacts to transform into female celebrities like Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and Ariana Grande. He posts his makeovers on his Instagram account, where he has already amassed over 365,000 followers.

Take a look at some of his brilliant transformations: It really is the same person, I swear.

If you need a lesson in contouring, just take a look at these photos. Do you think he used a lipstick from Rihanna‘s MAC collaboration?

2. Ariana GrandePaolo Ballesteros Ariana Grande Transformation

Not only did Paolo get Ariana Grande‘s ponytail right (the most important thing) he also nailed her makeup look. I just keep asking myself, “how?”

I thought Emilia Clarke‘s transformation into the Khalessi was impressive, but this makes that seem almost easy.
