The name Goar Avetisyan may not sound familiar to you, but if you love to browse makeup transformations on the Internet, then chances are you’ve already seen some of her amazing works. The Armenia-born, Moscow-based makeup artist gives beauty makeovers to all kinds of clients, but her jaw-dropping makeup transformations of women with skin conditions and facial deformities are the most popular ones. Click through the slideshow below to see how Avetisyan uses her topnotch makeup skills to make her clients feel beautiful inside and out.
#1 All covered up
Though birthmarks should never be seen as a flaw, some people who have them prefer to have them covered with makeup to feel good about themselves. Large reddish birthmarks aren’t easy to conceal, but Avetisyan did a pretty spotless job in hiding the port wine birthmark of the woman in the photo. With an immaculate makeup from Avetisyan and a fabulous new hairstyle, the lady in the picture was seemingly transformed into a Pantene ad model.
#2 30-minute makeup challenge
Avetisyan and her team did an awesome job in giving Irina a complete makeover. But would you believe that Avetisyan did all the makeup in just 30 minutes? Because Irina had to leave Moscow early the following day, Avetisyan and her team were only given limited time to do the transformation. Though Avetisyan admitted that she would have done a lot of things differently if she had more time, she found the experience interesting and would remember it forever.
#3 Life-changing transformation
After getting her face burnt off when she was a child, Jamilya became antisocial and spent most of her time at home. But in 2017, she slid a DM to Avetisyan on Instagram that led to her getting a makeover from the makeup artist. The transformation was literally life-changing because after Jamilya’s makeover went viral on the Internet, several opportunities have opened up for her. She has started to get invites to become a model for different makeup brands and even signed an advertisement deal.
#4 Evened out
The woman in the photo has white patches on her face and neck due to vitiligo, a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells. Evening these discolored patches out with one’s original skin tone can be a very difficult task, but Avetisyan did it perfectly. Paired with a fabulous hairstyle and a chic outfit, the makeup made the woman look like a professional print model.
#5 Instant glow
The lady in the picture was glowing with happiness after getting an impressive beauty makeover from Avetisyan and her team. Aside from concealing the woman’s seemingly burnt skin near her left eye, Avetisyan also made her eyes look more expressive, her cheekbones more prominent, and her lips plumper. Completing the woman’s gorgeous transformation was her long wavy hair that made her appear a couple of years younger.
#6 All glammed up
The woman’s scar on the right side of her face was magically concealed by Avetisyan using the right cosmetic products and makeup tools. The woman’s eyes also became even more beautiful after Avetisyan gave her a smokey eye makeup complete with attractive false eyelashes.
#7 Chrissy Teigen?
Sonya, the 17-year-old girl in the photo, was diagnosed with gynecologic cancer when she was 1 year old and has been fighting the disease since then. After finding out that Sonya is a huge fan of Avetisyan, the makeup guru and her team decided to give her beauty makeover as a little gift for being an inspiration to many. Though the makeup transformation made Sonya look a little bit mature, it’s still an incredible glow-up that happened to highlight her resemblance to Chrissy Teigen.
#8 Kim Kardashian look-alike
This beauty transformation is so incredible that some onlookers would think that the before-and-after photos feature two different women. The lovely Greek lady in the picture is Karina, a cancer warrior in her 30s, who’s going through chemotherapy at the time she got a memorable makeover from Avetisyan. Karina wrote a letter to Avetisyan when the latter was in Greece for a master class on makeup. Karina introduced herself as a fan and asked if she could give her a makeover. Avetisyan immediately agreed, and with the help of her team, she was able to transform Karina into a Kim Kardashian look-alike.
#9 A dream come true
Dasha has a stage 4 sarcoma cancer, and when volunteers from the Grant Life Fund asked what her dreams are, she said that one of them was to receive a video greeting from Avetisyan. After finding out about this, Avetisyan set a meeting with her and gave her a makeover that she would remember for the rest of her life.
#10 Sibling makeover
The man and the woman in the pictures are siblings Orlando and Oksana. They are persons with disability who were abandoned by their parents from birth and spent their entire adult life in an orphanage. Avetisyan organized a trip for them to give them a makeover. Initially, the team was only supposed to give a makeover to Oksana. But after seeing how amazing his sister’s transformation was, Orlando asked if he could get one too. The transformation made Oksana look like Kelly Osbourne, while Orlando appeared younger with his newly colored hair.
#11 Red-carpet ready
Ravilia, the woman in the picture, has an inoperable tumor and is losing 1 kilogram each day. To cheer her up, her daughter Alina reached out to Avetisyan and asked if she could give her mom a makeover. Avetisyan agreed, and the transformation made Ravilia look like veteran actress Rita Moreno on a red-carpet event.
#12 From a girl into a woman
Though the girl looked a bit more mature after the makeover, the transformation was still gorgeous nonetheless. The reddish spots below her eyes and on her forehead were all concealed amazingly, leaving her pretty face blemish-free. Her blue beautiful eyes also popped up, thanks to dark eyeliner and eyeshadow applied by Avetisyan. While some might argue that the girl’s bright red lips are too much for her age, it really is the most striking part of her transformation.
#13 Lovely grandma
Larisa Fedorovna has deep wrinkles all over her face. But after getting an incredible makeover from Avetisyan and her team, those creases and folds became less prominent, knocking some years off her age.
Concealing pimples with makeup can be very tricky but Avetisyan has already mastered the best way to hide them. The woman in the picture had visible pimples on her cheeks, chin, and forehead, but all those blemishes were nowhere to be found after getting a makeover from Avetisyan and her team. While the woman’s makeup wasn’t really as fancy as the others, her cute little smile in the after photo suggests that she’s satisfied with the outcome.
#15 Wish granted
Inna, the woman in the photo, asked Avetisyan if she could give her a makeover to make her happy even just for a day. Though her own team wasn’t sure if she could actually give Inna a satisfying makeup transformation that she deserves, Avetisyan granted her request. And after seeing what she had done, Avetisyan was glad that she didn’t reject Inna’s simple wish.
The woman in the photo is Firuza, the cleaning lady who works for Avetisyan. Everyone in Avetisyan’s team loves Firuza, so they decided to give her a stunning makeover as a thank you for her hard work. With all her freckles, lines, and age spots concealed, Firuza looks refreshed and happier in the after photo. The makeover also made her look like actress Kim Cattrall, who is best known for her role as Samantha Jones on HBO’s Sex and the City.
#17 Ready to party
The woman in the picture looks like she’s ready to take the stage to perform after getting an incredible makeover from Avetisyan and her team. The deep creases between the woman’s nose and eyes were all magically concealed following the transformation. While her shimmering eyeshadow and glittery lips helped her achieve a fabulous look, it’s really her gorgeous hair that deserves all the glory.
The girl in the picture was turned into a living doll after getting a dreamy makeover from Avetisyan and her team. The girl already looks beautiful without makeup on, so it wasn’t really surprising to see her become more attractive following the transformation.

Good makeup can really make people happy, and that’s pretty clear in the picture of Alsou from Dubai after getting a fabulous makeover from Avetisyan and her team.

This is one of the most natural-looking makeovers done by Avetisyan and her team. Avetisyan chose a neutral color for the woman’s lips and made sure that her eye makeup was not overdone. The outcome gave the woman a friendlier aura, which made her look like veteran actress Shirley Jones.
