A makeup artist who goes simply by “Lucy” on TikTok and Instagram has been making quite a stir lately. With nearly a million and a half followers at the time of writing, she’s captivating a whole lot of people with her hyper-realistic and incredibly detailed makeup transformations.

Lucy bills herself as a “professional shapeshifter,” and it’s easy to see why. Her chameleon act is so thorough that you sometimes forget she’s even there.

Check out these ten incredible examples of what just what she can do, and what she can become.

The few times in my life that even basic makeup has been required of me I’ve failed miserably, so I have mad respect for artistry like this. Pretty mind-blowing what can be accomplished with some talent, patience, and imagination.

If you could transform yourself into any character, who would you choose? Halloween is coming, after all…
