Meet the make-up artist who can transform herself into almost anyone.

Lucia Pittalis, 44, has transformed herself using only make up into a host of famous faces, including Rambo, Queen Elizabeth II, Walter White and Keith Richards.

The Rome-based make up artist and painter creates her amazing works of art using her face as the canvas and has attracted an impressive following on social media.

The 44-year-old has been doing these amazing metamorphoses for the past three years.

She said: “The idea came from my passion for portrait paintings, makeup, and my love for cinema and theatre.

“I started making characters on my face on Halloween time to have fun with friends.

“At the beginning I got funny reactions from my friends. Then I used social media to spread my transformations worldwide.

“Now I would love to improve my skills and learn more of Sfx world, and continue to work in the film industry.

“And I have new characters coming too.”

Lucia has pursued face painting as a career for seven years and each of the intricately detailed famous faces takes Lucia around three hours to complete.

The talented artist selects her muses mainly from the mediums of film and music and said she chooses people that she thinks will be suited to her face.
