It’s easy to be envious of celebrities. They seem to have it all, fame, wealth, money, everything they could ever ask for. Is this coming from a completely shallow place? Of course! Who knows if they have love in their lives, loyal friends, supportive families, etc. We’re simply saying from afar, they’ve got it good.
Stars (be it actors, singers, models, the like) do complain and, in a sense, reassure the public that it takes a lot for them to look a certain way. Some of them don’t need a ton of makeup or smoke and mirrors but in this world of paparazzi and HD, there are also many who need to put on their face before they leave their home. Ugh, putting on their face, what a gross expression. Makeup, depending on who you are, is either your most trusted friend or your worst enemy. It can transform you, sure, but it’s also a pain. Men have no idea what women go through. Except this guy.
Paolo Ballesteros has over 370K followers on Instagram. Yes, he is an actor and TV host in the Philippines but what makes his posts so popular is how he transforms himself to look like some of the world’s most famous stars. Scratch that. The world’s most famous female stars.
Are the pictures bananas? Of course! But they’re also inspirational. If you’re willing to wear a crap ton of makeup and acquire the kinds of skills only a true artist possesses, you too can look like Jennifer Lawrence. Or Megan Fox. Or Nicki Minaj. Or… just look for yourself, OK?
Pretty woman? Pretty awesome.
Not only does he capture her likeness but he’s also got the smile down. How? HOW??
This seems like a bit of Kim with a dash of Kourtney thrown in but he is all Kardashian with this transformation.
Not our favourite. It’s a little too White Chicks, if you ask us.
Bang bang? Pfft, more like bang on.
This is a little Demi, a lot Victoria Beckham, non?

Wonder what the Fox has to say about this? We say it’s amazing.
The Philippines’ next top model. Unreal.
Shut. Up. We can’t. There are no words.
