Björk’s Distorted Drag Makeup by Isshehungry

Bjork’s Distorted Drag Makeup by Isshehungry

@isshehungry works and lives in Berlin, Germany. ‘Hungry’ is a very talented makeup artist, crossing the bounderies of the common perception of beauty. The created faces almost look like a Photoshop session gone wild; but don’t let them fool you: it’s all painted for real! Did you know: the face of Björk on the ‘Utopia’ album cover has been done by Hungry…..Nice!
