Who needs plastic surgery when you've perfected the art of contouring?

Is that you, Kim?

Nope — it’s 32-year-old Filipino actor, model and makeup artist Paolo Ballesteros who, after taking the Internet by storm last year with his magical contouring powers, recently has released new pictures of himself on Instagram transformed into platinum blonde Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson.

Ballesteros credits YouTube beauty tutorials for his initial inspiration, and he told The Huffington Post that after a few attempts, even he was "surprised" at how well he pulled off his celebrity-makeup masterpieces. Wigs, colored contacts and the perfect smizes have helped Ballesteros morph into countless female icons including Cher, Oscar winner Julianne Moore and even Michelle Obama.

The actor also recently was confirmed to be starring in the indie comedy Die Beautiful, the "story of a Filipino transgender woman whose dying wish is to be buried looking like Lady Gaga." If Ballesteros is on makeup duty, we have a feeling that won’t be a problem.
