Every day is Halloween if you're makeup artist Marina Mamic. The Croatian artist completely transforms herself into some of the biggest pop culture icons — all with just a handful of beauty products. Her makeovers, which can take as long as eight hours, are going viral on social media and we can see why.
Marina's time-lapse videos show her transformations in high speed, becoming everyone from Julia Roberts to Michael Jackson. And when we say she can transform into anybody, we mean anybody.
Just check her out morphing into Al Pacino's iconic character Scarface right before our eyes.

And her over 90,000 Instagram followers are just as impressed. "Guuuuurl, you are amazing," one fan wrote before another added, "That's incredible." More recently, she turned herself into Tom Payne aka Jesus from The Walking Dead, and the side by sided comparison is insane. "As you can see I started doing transformations in 2012," she wrote. "I didn't have money for a good camera, better lighting, wigs, contact lenses. I didn't even have a lot of make-up or make-up brushes. But that didn't stop me."
She continued, "What I want to say is that you NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. Even if you don't have much money, don't have much makeup, don't have any support from others don't let that stop you! Be creative, use what you got and WORK HARD!"

Hope this motivates you! 😘 SWIPE LEFT for more pics 👆🏻 As you can see I started doing transformations in 2012! I didn't have money for a good camera, better lighting, wigs, contact lenses.. I didn't even have a lot of make-up or make-up brushes.. But that didn't stop me 😊 I took my old laptop and recorded my transformation with a webcam. I learned how to edit my videos and how to upload them on YouTube by watching many 'how to' videos 😂 Because I couldnt aford wigs sometimes I used different kinds of fabric for the hair (like for example on the Lady Gaga transformation from 2013) 😉 I didn't have much but I had a big dream to ispire people all over the world with my art! And that dream kept me motivated through all these years! The more transformations I did the more people started to notice me, to follow me and to support me! 💕 The media recognized my hard work so my transformations ended up in famous Croatian newspaper and famous Croatian TV stations wanted to do interviews with me! All that happened while I was still doing my transformations on a shitty WEBCAM! 😂 Few years later I was invited to work on a famous TV show 'Your face sounds familiar' here in Croatia and I worked there for 4 seasons! 💕 Everything I earned I invested in makeup and better lighting. I bought a better webcam in 2014 and in 2016 I bought an Iphone so I could record my transformations with it (I still use my phone to record videos) 😁 What I want to say is that you NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS. Even if you dont have much money, dont have much makeup, dont have any support from others dont let that stop you! Be creative, use what you got and WORK HARD! It's probably gonna take years and years of hard work but trust me.. It's gonna be WORTH IT! 😘 THANK YOU for believing in me! 🙏🏻
For a more Halloween approved makeover, Marina gave her followers a quick and easy tutorial that involved a lot of fake blood. Or if you really watch nightmares, just watch her transformation into Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. And she is slowly building her celebrity following. Recently, Alyssa Milano reached out to Marina to show her support. 'Thank you gorgeous Alyssa Milano for the support and kind words, this means the world to me! You are beautiful inside and out," Marina wrote.
