Russian makeup artist completely transforms middle-aged women into model-like beauties

Women in need of a bit of a boost look almost unrecognisable in these stunning before and after snaps. 

The clients, from across Russia, were treated to a transformation by make-up artist Vadim Andreev, 36, from Saint Petersburg, who is known for shaving years off his clients’ ages with his ability to banish wrinkles, fine lines and dark circles from the most tired of complexions. 

He’s worked with various Russian celebrities from models and actresses to popstars, but still delights his 40,000 Instagram followers by transforming the looks of everyday people. 

Vadim has been a makeup artist since he was 16 years old and believes anyone can look like a flawless celebrity with the right know-how. However, he does admit to a little bit of post-production on his professional images, like colour correction or sharpening.

Bored Panda collated Vadim’s latest mind-blowing makeovers and here, FEMAIL reveals some of the most impressive examples.
