Paolo Ballesteros has turned his make-up brushes to Caitlyn Jenner
The trend for Kim Kardashian-style contouring is showing no signs of slowing down, with girls all over the world keen to copy their beauty icons and achieve the flawless looks Instagrammed by Khloe, Kylie and Kim Kardashian, and now Caitlyn Jenner. But it’s not just ladies who have been stocking up on the lipliner – meet Paolo Ballesteros, the Filipino make-up artist and Instagram sensation who can turn himself into any member of the Kardashian clan with a good foundation, a creamy lipstick and some serious eyeshadow. Oh, and an enviable wig collection.
The latest project for Paolo? Recreating Caitlyn Jenner’s new look, complete with soft waves and old Hollywood make-up – very Vanity Fair. We’re not going to lie, we had to do a double take when we first saw the Insta-transformation – the resemblance is uncanny, right down to the pose. But Caitlyn isn’t the first Kardashian-Jenner to undergo Paolo’s make-up mastery either; Paolo has also posted himself dolled up as – deep breath - Kris, Khloe, Kim, Kendall and Kylie. Every female member of the family in fact, except Kourtney. Don’t worry though, Paolo has said he will “complete the Kardashian girls” with Kris’ eldest daughter very soon. We can’t wait – is it too soon to do Penelope and baby North?
Paolo isn’t just a Kardashian obsessive – other celebrity makeovers have included supermodel Cara Delevingne and her bushy brows, the First Lady Michelle Obama, Jennifer Lawrence complete with blonde pixie crop and Katy Perry in a bright purple wig. We’re impressed - this guy must have a seriously inspiring beauty bag, and industrial amounts of make-up remover.
Paolo is also an actor and successful TV host when he’s not transforming his face over Instagram, appearing in nearly forty film and TV shows in his native country. Maybe the make-up chair was where he caught the beauty bug?
