The talented makeup artist is 27 years old, she lives in Chongqing. Subscribers jokingly offered the girl to draw the Mona Lisa on herself, and she agreed.
After seeing the reaction to the Mona Lisa video, the Chinese woman continued the da Vinci theme with a portrait of a Lady with an ermine.

The video, in which the girl makes herself a singer Taylor Swift, has collected 390 thousand views. And this is despite the fact that He is not the only one in China to transform into Western celebrities: Wang Jiawen from Chengdu is doing the same, and Taylor Swift is also among her works.
Each such transformation takes from four to six hours. Among Hye's other works is makeup depicting Taiwanese singer Teresa Teng, her mother's favorite performer.
