O.M.G! would be my choice of words if I had only one word to describe the unbelievably fantastical and even, implausibly magical pieces of art that are being created by Jordan Hanz, the uber talented make-up artist, who has really just taken the make-up world by storm in the last year with her superb face painting and make-up skills!
Jordan is only 24 years old, and is a truly talented, self-taught, make-up artist/face painter, who has only recently started experimenting with make-up-, contact lenses, fake eye-lashes and all kinds of painting techniques to create some of the most phenomenal artworks on her face! Now when I say recent, I mean, pretty much just over a year! Jordan, started transforming her face, and shoulders (most of the time) into a whole assemblage of mystical and fantastical creatures in March of 2014, having never done anything like this before, it’s ridiculously amazing how far she’s come, basically, overnight!
When Jordon first started exploring with make-up and creating all these awesomely inspiring masterpiece creations on her own face, she says that she felt she had finally found her calling, her passion, one of the many reasons that gets her excited to wake up every morning and create! Jordon initially came across some artists who were painting directly on their bodies with acrylic paints, and she was stunned at how realistic it looked, giving her the inspiration and courage to explore and this was her stepping stone into releasing all of her creative juices flow!
From scary, Mortal Kombat’s Mileena, to the World of Warcraft’s Blood Elf, Jordan has a “thing” for creating characters of video games. Another one of her most mesmerising pieces of work is her Witcher 3 Transformation Make up tutorial, in which she literally transforms her entire face and top part of her body, into a perfectly precise replica of the character Gerald, from the new Witcher video game series, using flabbergasting skill, make-up, paint and yellow comic book contact lenses. The transformation that Jordan creates is mind blowing really, and for a second, perhaps even a minute, you might think that she’s just messing with all of us, and that it must of been PhotoShopped, but then she went and uploaded the actual tutorial of herself painting the make up on her face and putting her contacts in, and that’s it, our minds are blown!
Jordan’s self-taught make-up artistry really is a whole different ball game, and people are absolutely obsessing over her latest creation, the Aphrodite Statue, which she brought-into-being, with a tutorial video that she uploaded only 3 weeks ago. The Aphrodite Statue Tutorial Video, where Jordan creates an uncanny replicated version of a statue, including cracked stone and a white meshed eye contact lens in her right eye, has had over 57 000 views and will probably land her the title of the NYX Face Awards, which she has been nominated for and is currently running in the Top 20!Jordan has built up a strong and massive fan base, with over 200 000 followers on Instagram and over 32 000 subscribers on YouTube, she’s constantly posting tutorials on how to (apparently very easily) recreate her blissfully beautiful make-up handiwork. With the combination of Hanz’s talented make-up artistry, and adding in accessories like contact lenses, glitter, extreme encrusted fake lashes and a trusty video camera, Jordan is making quite the name for herself in the industry! Hanz has also been posting tutorials on how to achieve everyday normal, but striking and boldly sexy and sultry make-up!
So if you think you could follow Jordan Hanz’s super wicked tutorials, why not check out these contact lens videos, while you’re on YouTube and stock up on a variety of contact lenses for your new adventure into the world of make-up and face painting art!
