Whether able to admit it or not, we are all hooked on Instagram; a social media platform that is both informative and utter garbage all at the same time. Full of ways to procrastinate, Instagram this week had us all hooked, with one British make-up artist, Alexis Stone aka Elliot Joseph Rentz, transforming himself into Stormi Webster; the famous baby daughter of Kylie Jenner.
Using nothing but make-up, the Manchester Vlogger shared a step-by-step tutorial of how to turn your face into that of an infant. Causing a great deal of intrigue and backlash, the video understandably went viral; shared, endorsed and commented on by thousands of social media users from across the globe.
Viewed over 750,000 times when it first appeared online, the video received mixed responses.
‘This is…. Terrifying’ one comment read.
Another added: ‘YOU ARE THE NEW LEVEL OF MAKEUP TRANSFORMATION.’
‘So creepy and creative,‘ added another.
While nobody can argue that the video is bizarre, the make-up products used and application techniques simply cannot be criticized. Any 25-year-old man that can make themselves look like a one-year-old female baby through make-up should be admired.
But, how did he do it? Well, first, the artist used a bald cap to conceal his hair. He then applied layer upon layer of foundation and highlighter to replicate the shapes and shadows of Kylie Jenner’s baby’s face.
Using a selection of brown shadows and contouring techniques, he then painted on a fake nose and mouth. For Stormi’s hair, thin strokes of make-up were added to the cap, with the end result being just spectacular.
But, this is not the first time the British influencer has used the Kardashian family as inspiration for his work. Just last month, he turned his friend into Kylie Jenner herself, creating a real make-up masterpiece. Showing an uncanny resemblance to the youngest female billionaire of all time, Alexis Stone has now crept up to over 800,000 followers, known across the world for his weird and wonderful make-up creations.
