There are plenty of makeup tutorials on the Internet that can teach you just how to get flawless skin and almond eyes with the stroke of a brush. However, the makeup video taking the world wide web by storm right now is one that shows a woman wiping her face clean. Well, half of it anyway.
The video, titled “how to remove your face,” uploaded by a South Korean woman on YouTube shows her dabbing one side of her face with a wad of cotton dipped in makeup remover. Slowly, almost like magic, you see the eye liner, eye shadow, brow filler, mascara, foundation and whatever else was used before disappear to reveal her ‘original’ face. And to say the difference is stark would be an understatement.
It’s amazing to see how the woman transformed herself with a just few cosmetics and some handy brushwork. You cannot help but notice the glaring difference in the shape and size of her eyes. If the made-up and not made-up sides weren’t on the same face, you’d think it were two different women altogether.
Uploaded exactly a month ago, the makeup-in-reverse video has gone viral with over 8.4 million views on YouTube.
