In the wide world of cosmetics on social media, there are two types of artists. There are your standard beauty bloggers who do demos on wearable makeup looks and talk people like me into spending exorbitant amounts of money on lipstick every month, and then there are artists of the special-effects variety. These creators tend to focus less on blush and bronzer and more on glue and silicone.
One such craftsman is an artist and Instagrammer who goes by the name of bobbugs. Using less-than-standard materials like pinecones, cereal, and office supplies, he does something absolutely insane to his face every day.
The self-proclaimed “master of disguise” has a quirky approach to art and a solid sense of humor.

It’s like armor except it’s glued to your skin, so it’s not like armor at all.
I’m now even less comfortable.
Anyone who’s ever worn glittery eyeshadow knows that it took him approximately 35 years to remove this.
I should follow more Instagrammers like this, because no part of me wants to drive myself into debt buying their materials. So many props to this guy for putting his face through actual torture every day in the name of art. We salute you, friend.
