Master of Disguise
There are some people that just have all the talent. While we sit here with eye brows that don’t even look related, there are make-up artists like Lucia Pittalis that have skills that are out of this world. With just a few cosmetics, makeup tools, and wigs, this Italian makeup artist and portrait painter can turn herself into just about anybody.
While her technique is astounding, she revealed that her most important tool is observation: “The process is studying the character – watching photos, movies, videos, and saving frames where necessary. I think how can it be adapted on my face. It is a kind of acting process before. I must be that character. Then I put on background music related to that character to be in the mood and I start to watch myself in the mirror.”
The faces take anywhere from three to five hours to paint on but the result is well worth it.
