Luca Luce is an Italian makeup artist who creates illustrations so incredible you have to see them to believe it.

He says his optical illusion designs can take anywhere from a few minutes to two hours to complete, depending on the complexity.


...to post-modern art...

... to grotesque colorations.


Luce, who is from Milan, told “Good Morning America” that while he’s worked as a makeup artist for Italian national TV for more than 15 years, he started creating 3-D illustrations on the palm of his hand with makeup in 2014.

"I like the fact that [the images] manage to confuse the viewer...this makes me proud of my efforts," he told "GMA."


Luce said design has been his "greatest passion" since he was a child, and that it's "helped me to be a great makeup artist."
