Young woman transforms into senior using only makeup

How many years older or younger could you make yourself look just by applying makeup? A few years? A decade? What about 40 years?

A Reddit user -- identified as a woman younger than 21-- first posted a photo of herself. Then alongside that photo, she posted another photo of herself with intricate makeup that made her look decades older. The images are a remarkable testament to what a combination of genuine talent, time and cosmetics can create.

She applied wrinkle lines around her eyes, mouth and forehead, resulting in droopy eyelids, laugh lines and crow's feet. Needless to say, her devious plan worked and she made it into the bar.

She isn't the first teen to stun with a remarkable makeup transformation.
