The 30-year-old’s efforts have even won over celebrity fans – The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus is among the thousands of fans who have shared her videos – and now the experts at In The Know Beauty have uploaded a compilation clip featuring her most impressive makeovers to Facebook.
The footage sees her morphing into Michael Jackson, Cara Delevingne, Mariah Carey, Drake and even Al Pacino as his character in Scarface.
The astonishing footage has been shared 194,000 times by incredulous fans, one of whom declared they’d ‘never seen anything like it’.
Beginning the video, Marina is seen heavily contouring her face with a brush, drawing a defined jawline, cheekbones and chiseled, upturned nose.
She adds eyeliner and dark brows before completing her look with a hat and a black wig- immediately morphing into a very realistic Michael Jackson.
She then goes on to turn herself into an equally convincing Drake – pulling on a hoodie to mask her long blonde hair.
Next up Marina is seen heavily contouring her face, before adding eye bags and a few lines – the finishing touches for her Al Pacino transformation are a wig and a giant cigar.
Marina then goes on to prove she can pull off a range of female celebrities too, using only the contents of her make-up bag to morph into pop singer Mariah Carey, model Cara Delevingne and Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker.
And her followers, of which she has 600,000 on Facebook alone, quickly flooded the comments section with praise.
One woman joked: ‘I’m over here trying to make myself look like a half way decent normal looking person and this goddess is over here mastering her disguising art.
‘Some people get all the talent and others like myself get 3 kids who hate sleep and insist on making mommy look like a zombie.’
Another added: ‘Makeup can change anyone. She is fabulous.I love her work!’, while one wrote: ‘You really have a talent. Never saw anything like it well done’.
And others were keen to emulate her skills, with one commenting: ‘I think we need some more practicing with our contouring before we get to this standard’.
‘Whoa. Who knew a person could transform this much with makeup!’, another wrote, while one joked: ‘Yet I can’t even cover the bags under my eyes’.
And one male follower even expressed his mock horror at being ‘misled’, writing: ‘This s*** scary could think u pulled Margot Robbie and end up with ….’ (sic).
The compilation clip came as Marina took to Instagram this week to reveal her idol Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, had shared a video of her transformation into him.
Posting up her video, she wrote: ‘Norman Reedus just shared my transformations on his Twitter. I can’t tell you how happy I am right now!’
She added of her success: ‘As you can see I started doing transformations in 2012.
‘I didn’t have money for a good camera, better lighting, wigs, contact lenses. I didn’t even have a lot of make-up or make-up brushes. But that didn’t stop me.’
She continued: ‘What I want to say is that you never give up on your dreams. Even if you don’t have much money, don’t have much makeup, don’t have any support from others don’t let that stop you! Be creative, use what you got and work hard!’.
