Malaysian Makeup Artist Creates Realistic And Haunting Art On Her Face

Special effects makeup is truly a wonder of the world, and the artists behind them are pretty much the modern day DaVinci. I mean, just imagine having the talent and skills to transform an ordinary face into a gruesome injury scar, a horror movie character or better yet, a classic dish of ‘lontong’!

Meet 27-year-old Wan Farah Nadia Wan Iskandar whose passion for special effects makeup as well as horror and thriller films has led her to create some stunning yet haunting masterpieces on her face.

With over 30,000 followers on TikTok, it’s clear that the public also enjoys and appreciates Farah’s makeup masterpieces, which is great because these creations do not happen overnight. One of her personal favourite and most popular projects, the Pale Man from Pan’s Labyrinth took four days to create as it involved lots of liquid latex, which requires more time for it to dry before she can move on to the tinier details.

And the best part is, not only are the results amazing, the process of Farah’s transformation is equally enchanting to look at. If it wasn’t for this video, I’m sure some of us wouldn’t be able to tell that this was actually special effects makeup at work!

Although Farah has been practicing special effects makeup since 2014, it remains more of a hobby as her part-time job as a makeup artist is still specialised in dinner date looks. However, she certainly doesn’t mind pursuing her interest in a career as a professional special effects makeup artist, and we’re already look forward to that!

You can check out more of Farah’s gorgeous work on her Instagram and TikTok account. But in the meantime, here are some of our favourite pieces from her!
