Unless you live under a rock, chances are you're no stranger to Instagram and YouTube makeup transformations. They can be almost hypnotic to look at. Swipe some here, dab it there, blend it all over, and bam — a face is completely transformed. And, these vloggers/'grammers are using some seriously crazy techniques — not exactly child's play.

This is makeup magic at its most intense.
