The 31-year-old makeup artist previously worked as teacher in a preschool for three years. Feeling like her creativity was “suppressed,” she decided to leave teaching and pursued “a new challenge.” She then decided to start experimenting with everything makeup.

Choi was quoted saying,

I’ve always been arty and had done bridal makeup before, which people really liked. I’d not done anything as crazy as the work I do now, though.” Enrolling at a local beauty college really helped Mimi to take her skills to new heights. But things really took off when Halloween was just around the corner. “I wanted to do something different for October 31, so I had a look on Instagram and found a photo of a woman, who looked like her face had cracked.”

She added:

I’d never tried any kind of crazy make-up on myself, but I just got out my black and white eyeliner and gave it a go.”
