Makeup Artist Transforms Herself Into Trevor From 'Grand Theft Auto V'
If you've ever searched YouTube for a makeup tutorial, you've seen that there are thousands out there that show just about everything from how to do a smokey eye to how to do cosplay makeup for a variety of geeky characters.
However, one makeup artist, YouTube user SammyLovesFossas, took her skills to the next level by posting a time-lapse video of herself doing her makeup that transformed her into one of the most iconic video game characters of all time: Trevor Philips from Grand Theft Auto V.
Trevor was one of the three main protagonists in Grand Theft Auto V. He served as the game's lovable psychopath, so much so that the character became controversial when the game released due to his penchant for violence and willingness to kill just about anyone (although most would argue that he fits perfectly in the world of Grand Theft Auto).
Trevor also sported a specific look: he was a middle-aged, balding man with hard lines on his face and a mole.
Here's artwork of Trevor from GTA V:
Now watch the video of SammyLovesFossas as she transforms herself into the character:
The makeup artist starts with a bald cap and begins applying the various shades that she needs to highlight and darken certain areas of her face. The style is done to make her look like the animated version of the character, right down to the lines that crease Trevor's forehead. The way in which she draws the character on her face is similar to the distinct art style from the Borderlands games.
Although the video is only a little over three minutes in length, it's likely this makeup job took a lot longer than that.
SammyLovesFossas did such a great job that she got recognition for her work from Rockstar Games, the developer behind the Grand Theft Auto titles.
