The talented artist we’d like to introduce you to today is often mistakenly called a makeup artist, but Dain Yoon is so much more than that. She’s known online for creative and surreal-looking art pieces, which she paints on herself. Her art is so surreal that many think it must be photoshopped, but it is in fact painted on by hand, which can take up to 12 hours. But just because Dain uses her face as a canvas, it doesn’t mean she’s “just” a makeup artist. She’s actually a professional painter with proper education, an art degree, many exhibitions and awards under her belt, and a pretty substantial client list.
Dain Yoon always had a talent for painting, so naturally, her parents made sure she went to an art school as soon as she could. Dain graduated from both Yewon Arts Middle School and Seoul Arts High School with honors and at the top of her class. She then went on to major in Stage Design at the Korea National University of Arts.
