This Guy Transforms Himself Into Celebrities Using The Magic Of Makeup.

Filipino TV host Paolo Ballesteros has way more talent than the Ryan Seacrests or Carson Dalys we have in the US. His talent extends beyond his onscreen career. He recently started making waves off-air with his Instagram profile, where he shows off his incredible hobby.

Using makeup, wigs, and contacts, Ballesteros transforms himself into remarkably uncanny copies of celebrities. You might find it hard to believe it’s the same face under all that eyeliner and lipstick, but he’s just too good at the details.
