After seeing endless Instagram trends, nothing surprises us anymore. Electric make-up? Alright, let’s try it out. Stud make-up? Hope those spikes don’t hurt. Braided brows? Okay then, let the Freedom Pro Brow Pomade - Ash Brown (Rs 810) and Colorbar Fabline Eyeliner Brush (Rs 200) get to work. But then entered bizarre trends like nostril hair extensions and selfie nails. These ones took beauty looks to a different level, they were unconventional and definitely, unexpected and sometimes just a little gross (a little).

Like it or not, these kinds of creative expression are not stopping anytime soon. So, Ellen DeGeneres decided to invite Dain Yoon, the illusionist and MUA who created selfie nails, on her show. And why not? Yoon is talented enough to blend herself anywhere, literally.

The illusion artist is known for using her body as a canvas. She almost had us seeing double through her paintings of multiple eyes and lips. And she was wearing the four extra eyes and two extra eyes look painted on her cheeks and forehead on the show as well.

“I’m not sure where to look,” said Ellen.  

She, in fact, asked Yoon, the two most important questions that we’ve all wanted to ask since selfie nails got viral. First one, “Do you go into bars and try to freak people out?” To which, Yoon admitted that her make-up did make a baby cry once. And the second one, “where does the hair come from?” and we heard what we were afraid of. “It is my own hair,” Yoon confessed.

She even explained, why she went ahead and created selfie nails. “This is because I want to express my different facial expressions, that’s why I painted it but it’s really uncomfortable, I can not eat noodles” Yoon revealed. We appreciate the creativity but still, there’s nothing better than Ellen’s expressions. So go ahead and watch them.
