Don’t get us wrong: We can spend hours on James Charles‘ channel watching videos about his daily makeup routine and not get bored. But lately, the beauty guru has come through with some pretty iconic makeup illusions that we seriously can’t even comprehend. Of course, he uses the best of the best when it comes to the products, but still, how does manage to transform himself into a doll, a mermaid and a bumble bee in such a realistic way?

Clearly, the 19-year-old is extremely talented, and as much as we love watching videos of him singing about foundation and doing other YouTubers‘ makeup, nothing quite compares to the awe-inspired feeling we get when the makeup artist posts a new makeup illusion on the internet. We don’t know about you, but we’ve been totally shook by several of his illusions, so scroll through the gallery to see some of our absolute faves.
