This make up artist transforms clients up to 80-years-old by making them look decades younger
There's no denying that we live in a society that's obsessed with youth; the anti-ageing industry is worth billions of dollars, and hey, if you can't get eternal life, eternal looks must be the next best thing, right? Well, as long as you're aware of some of the more problematic facets of the beauty industry, there's no harm in having a little fun. I mean, some people become absolute artists when they pick up an eyeshadow palette and a contour stick.
One such individual is Anar Agakishiev, a makeup artist from Azerbaijan who has the magical skill of making women up to 80 years old look almost half their age. Working in his studio in Baku, Agakishiev transforms the older ladies of the world by expertly hiding wrinkles, under-eye bags, discolouration and some of the other common signs of old age, without concealing their natural beauty. And some of the makeovers are so amazing that you won't be able to believe that they are the same woman... Have a gander below.
