This Makeup Artist Can Transform Into Almost Any Celebrity Using Nothing But Makeup
This is amazing!
Madame Tussauds Wax Museum has a long history of carefully crafting celebrity lookalikes. Now, an artist from across the pond has become an internet sensation by transforming into famous faces with only makeup.
Better known as Alexis Stone, Elliot Joseph Rentz is a drag queen and fashion designer-turned-influencer from Manchester, England, renowned for creating incredibly realistic celebrity replicas.
Check out the before and after shots below, as Stone transforms into actress Tilda Swinton.
@thelipking 💕💉👌🏻 so happy with my cheeks. No one wants to read or know your personal wrong opinions so keep them to yourself. Negativity = blocked. ___ We used 4ml of Revolax Sub Q, which is a thick filler, that is South Korea's number one selling Dermal Filler! It is great for cheeks and lasts between 9-12 months, its £149 for 1ml between each cheeks or £249 for 2ml between both cheeks 👄💉
Stone can easily become Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and even Queen Elizabeth by using cosmetics and contouring techniques to recreate a wide range of famous faces. The photos on Stone’s Instagram account have fans doing double-takes before double tapping with likes.
Stone is a dead ringer for Queen Elizabeth in the snap below. Amazing transformation!
And here’s Stone as a very convincing Charlize Theron.

This talented makeup artist expertly captures wrinkles, face shape, cheekbones and many other details to transform into everyone from Charlize Theron to Johnny Depp. What’s even more impressive is that Stone is self-taught.
“I started dabbling with makeup as a young teenager and have done drag throughout my teenage years,” Stone told the Daily Mail.
Behind-the-scenes videos from Stone’s YouTube channel are even more impressive because they show time-lapse footage so you can see the face of each celeb take shape right before your eyes. See for yourself with this Jennifer Lawrence transformation. The resemblance is truly uncanny.
Surprisingly, the makeup masterpieces take less than an hour to finish and all those posted are first attempts. Wow!
While the range of faces Stone mimics vary, they are often A-listers known for their own striking good looks such as Kim Kardashian, Dita Von Teese and Cher. Check out pics of Stone as all three of those brunette beauties below:

On the other hand, some replicas skew more controversial, like this one of bad boy model Jeremy Meeks.
