Her inspiration draws from a rich tapestry of sources, including the patterns of her surroundings, digitally manipulated art, and the surreal creations of visionaries like Salvador Dali and M.C. Escher.

Mimi’s journey is also influenced by her personal experiences, including sleep paralysis, which spawns haunting visions that find expression in her morbid and distorted face looks.

Halloween inspired makeup looks

We know that Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to get makeup inspiration than from this trippy makeup artist?

Though her makeup looks aren’t specifically created for Halloween, you can still use her ideas or create a 3D look just like hers, especially if you’re a skilled SFX makeup artist like herself.

But be sure to credit her if you’re taking inspiration from her.

One of her remarkable creations that we can’t peel our eyes from is this realistic makeup look, which took her roughly six hours to craft!

Interestingly, Mimi had to break up the process over three days due to her baby’s needs. She could only paint in short bursts, but her unwavering determination shone through.

The grand reveal, though, came at a cost – she had to snooze with her spooky creation for days. But trust Mimi, the thrill of weaving such eerie Halloween magic is worth every sleepy incantation.
