Artist Creates Impressive Optical Illusions On Her Face Through Make-Up

Painter, illustrator and make-up artist Dain Yoon from South Korea creates realistic optical illusions that trick our minds using her face as a canvas. Yoon’s artistic talent appeared early on in her life. The artist admits that when she was a child, she was spending a lot of time painting and that painting was what she could do best.


Yoon explains that the reason why she is so fascinated by creating optical illusions stems from the idea that experience is subjective and therefore making reality a subject to that experience also. In an interview with AWorkstation.com, the artist discusses her work, where she elaborates,


“A lot of people seem to think illusion means tricking people into something, but I don’t think of it that way. I don’t think of illusion necessarily as trickery but a wider concept. I think that anything that seems slightly different from its original form could be an illusion or take you out of the illusion you’re living in.”


After she attened a prestigious art preparatory school, she enrolled at the Korean National University of Arts to study scenography. There, she seized the opportunity to work with actors and to use their bodies as the canvas on which she would draw particular designs with make-up. After gaining experience in theatrical make-up, Yoon slowly started producing her individual work outside theatre settings using models.


Later on, she decided to focus her painting on the face as it is the part of the body through which people communicate their most delicate emotions. The artist uses watercolors as the main material to paint on her face creating illusions of eyes, lips, geometrical shapes, and often chooses to create illusions that match her face with her surroundings.


Dain reveals that the optical illusion artworks she creates on her face can take anywhere from three to twelve hours to complete. She goes on to explain all the steps she follows from the start to achieve the final result:
“The first step is conceptualizing ideas. This takes the longest. The last step always depends. If I paint myself and want to record this as a digital photo, this recording would be the last step.”


Dain Yoon encourages all new make-up artists not to be afraid of failure, as failure is an essential part of the learning process.
