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.

With insanely skilled makeup artists on the rise, argenapeede is one of those who caught my attention. It's the Marvel heroes that lured me. I've been following him on my Instagram ever since.

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.”

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.
