Makeup artist uses her love of paint and comic books to turn people into superheroes

The wonders of makeup artists never cease to amaze us, but the work of Lianne Moseley takes things to the next level. Moseley, a self-trained makeup artist in Calgary, uses her talents to make people look exactly like superheroes from the pages of their favorite comic books.

Moseley usually works with brides and models, but she recently added comic-book makeup to her repertoire. She’s been face-painting for two years and is a comic-book fan herself, which is hardly surprising when you see the loving detail she puts into each character. She’s transformed people into the Green Arrow, Superman, Wolverine, and many other characters. She even turned herself into She-Hulk.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a living, breathing comic-book character, you might want to give Moseley a call. You can see more images of her work below and on her Facebook page.
