Watch This Woman Age, Decay, and Be Reborn Using Makeup

Makeup Artist and Body Painter Emma Allen created this stop motion video called Ruby that shows her face gradually aging, dying, and becoming a creepy cool skull using makeup. But it doesn’t stop there. Eventually the skull cracks, vines start to grow out of it, and then flowers bloom. Then those fade away until… well the ending is a surprise. Mostly because who really knows what happens when you die? (Spoiler Alert: you become a dope ass leopard!) Emma spent 5 days painting her face in the mirror and took over 780 photos to create the final video.
