She Transforms Herself Into Famous Celebrities Using NOTHING But Makeup.
Lucia Pittalis is her own best muse. The makeup artist from Sardinia, Italy, uses her face to transform to just about anyone she desires. Pittalis does not use any prosthetics to bring characters like Tony Montana from Scarface or Don Vito Corleone from The Godfather, to reality.
Pittalis relies solely on her contouring techniques. It’s hard to imagine how this beautiful brunette can literally transform into the blond and rugged Hulk Hogan. The woman spends a lot of time studying all of her subjects before she begins the painting on herself.
Pittalis scours the market for accessories like hats, wigs, sunglasses, and boas, to help her with her metamorphosis. Aside from being very talented in her craft, Pittalis may also be an actor in the making. She admits to playing background music related to the character or person she is emulating while studying her facial expressions in the mirror.
Pittalis loves reading books about the history of makeup. Here she transforms herself into the charismatic but dangerous Don Vito Corleone from the Godfather.
Pittalis aged herself a couple of decades to become Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II.
She may be a natural talent but Pittalis also studied Classics and Art in university. Who can forget Hulkmania?
The artist says her need to learn her subject turns into a mission. "I think how can it be adapted on my face. It is a kind of acting process before. I must be that character," she explains.
She can become man or woman, young or old. Here she channels her inner Jim Morrison from the Doors.
