Artist transforms herself into the Grinch: ‘Most accurate one I’ve seen’

Professional makeup artist Amber Pitkin posts exciting makeup transformations on TikTok and her work has been featured in New Musical Express, Vanity Fair and in feature films like Wonder Woman, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Aladdin. 

However, Pitkin’s aesthetic is a lot more playful on TikTok than in her more stylized editorials. Armed with a makeup palette and her imagination, she has transformed seamlessly into characters like Noodle from the band Gorillaz and a pretty terrifying version of Pikachu

To keep with the holiday spirit, Pitkin transformed into the Christmas-hating storybook character, the Grinch. 

Pitkin adhered a green prosthetic nose that she got on Etsy to her face for a more authentic look. She coated her face in lime green body paint, drew dark green lines on her face and topped it off with green fur and a Christmas hat. 

The makeup artist described the look as “uncomfy” in the caption and said in the comment section it was “very hard to breathe! I couldn’t breathe out my nose at all!” 

The impressive video racked up almost 1 million views on TikTok

“The most beautiful Grinch makeup I have ever seen,” one person commented

“Woah! Most accurate one I have seen!” another said

“Yours is the best one since it’s the most realistic,” a user added
