Ok, this is why we have trust issues.
It's safe to say we're pretty familiar with Timothée Chalamet's face. From his cheekbones to his almost-perfect hair, we've practically studied it. So tell us how a beauty guru was able to pull off replicating his whole look so effortlessly using only makeup?! A British makeup artist transformed herself into the Little Women actor with ease and, honestly, it's wild.
Charlotte Roberts, 16, is a hugely popular makeup artist on TikTok and she's known for her incredible transformations. Being a huge fan of Timothée, she decided to challenge herself and recreate his look using only makeup.
In a TikTok video, set to a remix of Roddy Ricch's Number 1 single 'The Box', Charlotte first applies dark contour to change the shape of her nose and carve out Timothée's trademark chiselled cheekbones. Next, she adds makeup to her brows and hairline to make them fuller, and she ties back her long hair to make it look just like Timothée's.

Although the whole process looked super quick and easy, Charlotte told Buzzfeed that the transformation actually took four hours. Some of her more "detailed" looks can sometimes take up to 10 hours. 10! Hours! Serious commitment to the craft.
As you can imagine, the internet is shook right now (and a little scared).
