Meet the Makeup Artist Behind Badass 'Game of Thrones' Transformations

  • Paolo Ballesteros isn’t the first makeup transformation artist we’ve covered here at What’s Trending. There was our interview with the amazing Kandee Johnson, our coverage of the Korean makeup artist who transformed herself into the internet’s current favorite villain Taylor Swift, and more.

    But Ballesteros has garnered our attention for mashing up two of the internet’s favorite things: makeup transformations and Game of Thrones.

    Ballesteros, a TV host in the Philippines, has rocketed up the charts on Instagram for his awesome account that features pictures of cats, food, and oh yeah, himself as GoT characters.
