Insanely skilled makeup artist Argenis Pinal transforms himself into awesome comic book superheroes!
You find all sorts of people on Instagram, from the usual photography accounts to the weird ones where you can't stop scrolling and you just don't know just why. Instagram is also a portal for artists who actually deserve your time of the day, like user argenapeede, for instance.
But he's not one of those CGI or prosthetic artists you see running around on sci-fi sets. He simply enjoys transforming himself into comic book heroes. Argenis is a hairstylist and a freelance makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics. He probably got tired of his own tattoos and was like, “Fuck it, I'm going to be Wonder Woman.”
Argenis' transformations aren't limited to superheroes, though! Check out his supervillain transformations!
When he's not busy turning into superheroes who can lift buildings, he gets some of his friends on the makeup chair to be his personal makeup dolls for the day.
That Ursula one is truly wicked!
Sometimes when I'm scrolling on my Instagram feed, I forget the fact his photos aren't screen shots from some comic book panel. He really nails this thing!
He's what you've always wanted your brother to be every time Halloween comes around.
Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver! The Marvel fan in me is screaming.
Especially adored this.
MAC, LA Girls and Sigma Makeup are usually his weapons of choice. Nope, no acrylic paint or anything. Just the usual eye shadow, foundation, and lip liner among others.
Some are calling him ‘drag’ or whatever but seriously, have you ever seen a drag queen this badass?
