It’s been a while since we’ve mentioned an optical illusion as the last one we talked about was one that was driving people bonkers. But this time around we have to talk about a makeup artist named Mimi Choi whose latest work is something that looks should be on American Horror Story.

Choi, from Vancouver, is a big deal on Instagram with 375k followers as her work is pretty incredible, but a recent photo she shared is baffling. Take a look at the photo below that has gone viral.

What the hell? Choi made sure to add this caption:

“If you look closely, you will see my features disguised in the black and red paints. This is not photoshopped.”

And I think one Instagram comment probably sums it all up:

“This is cool but I also find it terrifying and gross.”

Yep, that pretty much nails it. Take a look below to see how Choi pulled this incredible illusion off.

It looks photoshopped because it’s amazing work. Take a look at more of Choi’s insane work.
