While some artists have mastered the Photoshop brushes to give some of their models a much needed face or eye lift, Russian artist Vadim Andreev uses those from the make-up artist kit. And his results are sometimes so jaw-dropping it’s hard to believe the pictures weren’t retouched! Using only cosmetics, Vadim transforms women into stunning cover girls, and can do an equally good job with carnival make-up as well.
No wonder there’s a popular saying in Russia that before you marry, you should take your bride to the sauna first – there you can you can see the real person, without all the cosmetics that can deceive you greatly. It’s an old saying/tradition long before the Photoshop era – so today this sauna test is probably even more important than ever before.
