A makeup artist has shown off her stunning facial alterations that have transformed into stars as diverse as Taylor Swift, Johnny Depp and even Albert Einstein.

Using nothing but cosmetics and wigs, He Yuya, 28, from Chongqing, China, has turned herself into the mirror image of Scarlett Johansson, Cristiano Ronaldo and others.

And while all of her past makeup conversions have left 540,000 online fans stunned, her latest Taylor Swift transformation has taken her ‘imitations’ to an even higher level.

A video of the transformation shows Ms Yuya covering over her eyebrows before re-drawing them, over-lining her lips and adding careful lines of blush and contour to her cheeks.

She then puts in blue contacts and adds a blonde wig to complete the look.

‘Wow you have got the talent girl,’ one follower commented.

‘I’m impressed, this is a next level makeup transformation!’ Said another. 

The variety of unique celebrities Ms Yuya has imitated goes to show how extensive her talent really is. 

Her Johnny Depp transformation also blew followers away after she used faux facial hair and heavy contouring to replicate his facial structure

The black and white photo of her dressed as Johnny Depp is so convincing that many would swear it was the actor himself.

The likeness is so uncanny that many commenters have raised doubts about whether it’s really her behind the makeup.  

‘You are the greatest makeup artist on earth,’ a fan wrote.

Although her Instagram feed is littered with a multitude of current famous people, she has also recreated Audrey Hepburn, Albert Einstein and Marilyn Monroe.
