Paolo Ballesteros Does Kardashian/Jenner Makeup Transformations & They Might Be His Best Work Yet
When Caitlyn Jenner covered Vanity Fair, she inspired many, including makeup artist Paolo Ballesteros, whose Kardashian/Jenner makeup is out of control impressive. Ballesteros has recreated almost everyone from the Kardashian/Jenner family, and his amazing transformations have gained him a sliver of the international fame the celebrities he recreates have enjoyed. Now, with this new Caitlyn Jenner look, he's almost done the entire Kardashian/Jenner family.
The host of the Pilipino television series Eat Bulaga!, Ballesteros has been doing makeup since he started acting. Since he began photographing his cosmetic transformations for Instagram, he has made himself into everyone from Cher to Elsa from Frozen. But it's his Kardashian/Jenner family transformations that have left everyone in awe. He started with Kim when she took on her blonde hair and his pop culture fascination naturally led him to Caitlyn Jenner.
The artist took to Instagram to show his followers, who gave him support that's comparable to the amazing response Jenner's cover received (at least in volume — doing impressive makeup isn't quite the same as coming out as trans woman). Ballesteros has gained more than 900,000 followers, who, according to PopSugar, are hoping to see the star on The Ellen Show sometime soon.
Jenner is not the only Keeping Up With The Kardashians icon to serve as muse for Ballesteros. Thanks to the power of makeup, he has turned himself into members of the Kardashian/Jenner family — and he might even have mastered contouring better than Kim K herself!
Right after Ballesteros posted his Caitlyn Jenner makeup, he followed up with a Kris-inspired look. Every detail was spot on, from the eye makeup to the hair style.
When Kim K went blonde, so did this makeup artist. I'm just glad that he didn't choose to recreate the Paper cover... (although maybe he should consider it).
This transformation was spot on. From the facial expression to the beauty mark on his face, it doesn't get more real without him actually being Khloe.
Just add blue hair and I'd think this was actually Kylie.
Call me crazy, but I think this makeup artist could get a modeling contract with these looks.
Now we just need a Kourtney Kardashian makeup look and he'll have done it all.
