A Makeup Vlogger’s Transformation Into Stormi Webster Is Going Viral
Alexis Stone is not exactly your typical beauty blogger. The U.K.-based influencer, whose name is Elliot Joseph Rentz, has 824,000 followers on Instagram alone and has become famous for using makeup to transform into celebrities and characters like Khaleesi from [Game of Thrones],(https://www.allure.com/story/game-of-thrones-jason-momoa-shaved-beard-internet-reactions) Jeffree Star, Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber, and even a social experiment of “botched” plastic surgery. For his latest tutorial, Stone chose Kylie Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster as his inspiration, and it might just become his most popular (and controversial) makeover yet.
The blogger took to Instagram on April 14 to announce his new tutorial. “Transformation Now ONLINE‼️ Transformed myself into @kyliejenner baby 👶🏼,” he wrote next to a photo of the finished look, which does, in fact, closely resemble the child. The full YouTube video is just over seven minutes and showcases Stone using a multitude of products — as well as a wig cap to hide his hair — to create the look. The further you get into the tutorial, the creepier it gets as he paints on Stormi’s nose, completely changes the shape of his eyes, and draws on new lips above his own — all with makeup.
Fans were equally impressed and disturbed by Stone’s epic transformation. Many left comments on the video like, “When you laugh baby smiles… that is some creepy stuff bro,” and “this is easily one of the most talented yet scary makeups looks I’ve ever seen.”
Additionally, some pointed out that Stone’s tutorial could be considered blackface seeing as Stormi is biracial. “So blackface??” wrote one user on Instagram, while another wrote, “🤪cultural appropriation 🤪.”
Others included comments like, “yep this is blackface” and “So we’re cool with blackface now?” What’s more, some people urged Stone to delete the video altogether.
As a whole, however, the general consensus is that people are both impressed and terrified. Check out the full tutorial and see how Stone works his magic, below.
