This Pakistani Makeup Artist Recreates Iconic Looks And They're So Dope

By Hurmat Riaz | 12 Jul, 2017

They say that makeup is magical as it transforms you from looking like a homeless hobo to someone ready for the red carpet. Well, it’s true in many cases but here’s someone who’s doing something else from makeup rather than getting ready for the red carpet.


This Pakistani makeup artist is getting a ton of appreciation on Instagram for recreating some of the most iconic looks

Like the Ainak Wala Jinn right here. It’s a total trip down memory lane, for us.


The resemblance is uncanny


Alishba Baz is a student of ACCA with a passion for makeup

She’s currently living in UAE and is a beauty blogger, as well.


She creates some of the most iconic looks from her childhood, like this one with all her favorite childhood candies

??When Nostalgia hits you hard! I had been wanting to do do something like this for a couple of months but couldn't wrap my head around the idea .

Alishba’s a huge Disney fan which is evident from her makeup looks

*breaks into singing Forevermore!*

“She warned him not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.” I can't wait for beauty and the beast so here's my version of the BEAST @disney @ohmydisney @elf cosmetics eyeliner in coffee Random brown eyepencil @essence cosmetic nude lipliner @colourpopcosmetics eyeliner -punch @jeffreestarcosmetics liquid lipstick – weirdo + dominatrix @jeffreestar @mehronmakeup- paradise palette @nyxcosmetics @nyxarabia eyebase -white @revlon photo ready foundation #uae?? #instalike #instamakeup #instadaily #morphebrushes #dubai #dubaibeautyblogger #beautyblogger #faceoffae #lovemakeup #jeffreestar #goshcometics #physiciansformula #disney #elfcosmetics #soapbrows #jeffreestarcosmetics #mehron #beast #mehronmakeup #nyxarabia #colourpopme #transformation #colourpop#weirdo #dominatrix

Talking to MangoBaaz, Alishba said that she got into trying out various looks using makeup to battle her anxiety and so far, the journey has been quite successful. *MashAllah*


In the beginning, she used to recreate looks by using her mom’s regular makeup which she found lying around her house.

Later on, as she progressed with her skills, she started doing freelance and upped her game.


This Cheshire Cat look is her personal favorite


She likes to play with looks and adds creativity by experimenting on her own face

Her Donald Trump inspired look has us in fits


Some of her looks take her around two hours to complete.

Like this Emily from The Corpse Bride. All the Tim Burton fans say Aye in unison.


This one of Winifred Sanderson from Hocus Pocus is also her favorite

Some of her looks are extremely creepy, but absolutely real


Her family and friends support her passion and sometimes get to be her models as well.

Here’s her dad getting a makeup transformation.

And her friend trying to see how she”ll look old.


Even the kids are getting in on her amazing makeup skills

You can follow Alishba’s work on her Instagram.
