Makeup artist Kandee Johnson is known for her spot-on pop culture makeup looks, and in the video below she showcases another facet of her impressive skill and creativity. Instead of transforming her facial features into those of someone else, her masterful use of contouring in greyscale turns her into a living work of art.
One of the most compelling aspects of this video is the importance of perspective. Johnson's initial black brushstrokes seem nonsensical, but once she turns her head, we are able to see the shading in context. Any deviation from that exact angle shatters the illusion she creates.
