We Found The Queen Of Terrifyingly Trippy Halloween Face Painting

That's her real face.

We've seen our fair share of talented artists using makeup to transform their faces, but this woman's face paintings are impressively spooky. Seriously, her selfie game is terrifying. 

Nikki Shelley from Rugby, England taught herself how to face paint two years ago and never looked back. Shelley, who also goes by "The Painting Lady," uses face paints to create optical illusions that make her look like monsters straight out of your nightmares. Shelley often gets her inspiration from the villains of horror films. 

Each of her paintings can take anywhere from one to four hours to complete. It may be time consuming, but the result is definitely worth it. 

Here's what she looks like before a transformation:
