The Korean artist, who refers to herself as a "visual illusion artist," uses a combination of makeup and watercolours, to create surreal paintings over her hands, face, and surrounding environment that looks so lifelike, you’d assume they were the result of Photoshop but they are actually real.

Yoon uses her face and hands to create optical illusions. At first glance, she'll appear to have three hands or 10 eyes, but it's all the work of some masterful painting and a lot of time and patience.

The paintings are incredibly difficult because according to Yoon, she has to draw everything so it can eventually be photographed or captured on video. She paints everything by looking in a mirror, switching back and forth between the mirror and a camera to ensure nothing looks distorted.

The trained painter and self-taught makeup artist want her art to encourage people to adopt different perspectives and "not judge a book by its cover."

“Anything, even in a very ordinary life, could be great inspirations with different perspectives,” Yoon says, “If I were to choose something out of my routine that draws inspiration, I would say that movies often help me twist my perspectives.”
