Behold the Power of Makeup! Girl on the Internet Transforms Herself Into Jared Leto

Meet Helena. She's a girl from Russia who is into cosplay (short for costume play), and one of her favorite characters to do is Jared Leto (apparently she's a fan of 30 Seconds to Mars). If you are one of those lucky people who has today off, this is a perfect way to waste six minutes. If you, like us, have to work today, this is a perfect way to waste six minutes while feeling resentful about having to be at work. And trust me, it's worth it.

Helena is a very pretty girl who looks remarkably like a shaggy, bearded, Jared Leto by the end of her transformation. Her makeup skills are amazing. The beard is drawn using kid's watercolor paint, she says on her site. "These dots [are] made with a toothbrush. Do not dilute the paint with water very much, a few drops of water is sufficient."

MAC has given us some great tutorials on creating the perfect cat-eye and bold lip. And now, thanks to Helena, we can try to achieve the perfect Jared Leto smudged eye-liner and five o'clock shadow.
