Maria Malone-Guerbaa

I was looking at articles about the England football team when I came across one about a face painter,  I was totally blow away and amazed when I saw the work of Malone-Guerbaa, she is so talented.

This gives a new meaning to face painting! Make-up artist who transforms herself into celebrities, including footballers from the World Cup Squad

A London mother-of-two has the ability to transform herself into practically any person or creature using purely make-up.

In support of England’s first match at the world cup, Maria Malone-Guerbaa even turned herself into Wayne Rooney and World Cup goal-scoring footballer Daniel Sturridge.

Maria used only make-up and face paints to create the illusion of Sturridge and Rooney on her face. 

She is also able to give herself a picture-perfect likeness of other famous faces including A-list stars Angeline Jolie, Morgan Freeman and The Queen.

After putting her passion on hold when she had her family, the 40-year-old’s work has become a hit after she put it online.

Maria, who lives with husband Billy and children Sophia, 12, and Adam, 10, has since been invited to teach at a prestigious make-up event in Miami in 2015.(we all know what that was)
