With the help of a little makeup, any kind of transformation is possible. At least it seems that way in the hands of makeup artist Charlie Short. Short becomes a wide-range of impressive characters from pop culture on his YouTube channel Pinkstylist, but his latest makeup tutorial just might be his best yet! 

Short’s new video walks you step-by-step through the process of using makeup to become the Dragon Ball Z villain Frieza. He explains in the video that he decided to copy the direct look of the character from the anime instead going for a realistic version. The results make Short look like he stepped right out of the show.

This tutorial and the others done by Short are based on requests from his viewers. His channel has more than a million subscribers and has tutorials for characters from Doctor Who, Spider-Man, Game of Thrones, and more.

Check out his tutorial for becoming a White Walker below and find the rest of his videos on YouTube
