A make-up artist has spent four hours transforming himself into Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby – and the results are hilarious.

Stevie Rosser, 32, from Barry, Wales, has spent the past 10 years experimenting with make-up looks and has painting himself an array of famous faces.

From Lady Gaga, The Joker, Buzz Lightyear, E.T and even Michael Keaton, Stevie will spend up to four hours on one new make-up look.

His amazing skills have seen him rack up hundreds of followers online.

Stevie’s most recent idea came from watching the ITV duo, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

The MUA added: “With Phil being a guy, I don’t have to spend so much time as I don’t need my skin to look like a ladies so I can skip the shave, I don’t need to layer on the foundation and there’s nowhere near as much eye work so it can be done in under an hour.

“Holly took two attempts and about two more hours [three hours all together].

“It’s not just the application time, I have to study their mannerisms and capture a photo or video at the perfect angle and pull a face that they would.

“This can take over 100 selfies and picking out the most recognisable one!”

Stevie started face and body painting in 2015 while he was working in Ibiza after dabbling with make up looks for years.

This then led to Stevie trying out drag as well where he did photoshoots, calendars, and even entered a few competitions.

He said: “After struggling with anxiety after I first started out I found myself pulling back from the drag scene.

“I’d sit in my room and paint my face and just spend a few hours enjoying it and wipe it off.

“I turned to make up as a form of relieving my anxiety when I was feeling down or stressed.”

Stevie has struggled to hold down a job over the years due to his anxiety, so hopes his new hobbie will help him get up the MUA career ladder.

After trying several fictional characters, he decided to start doing real people starting with the infamous Kim Kardashian-West.

Stevie said: “I’ve never had any training, I’m unqualified and I have an embarrassingly small make up kit.

“What interested me in Kim was reading an article about how her makeup artist uses over 40 products worth over £900 [$1200] to create her look, so I tried to do it on £20.

“I’m always on the hunt for cheaper alternatives and restrict myself to the absolute essentials and make do with what I’ve got.

“A bronzer can be an eye shadow, a contour powder and even a lip shade if mixed with Vaseline, etc.”

The ambitious MUA on a budget wanted to show that people are able to do these crazy transformations whatever their budgets.

Stevie was excited to recreate Phillip Schofield and Holly Wiloughby last week [March 15] and says he was most impressed with how Philip turned out.

He added: “It’s crazy how make-up can transform you into anyone.

“I was really pleased with how Phillip turned out and it is a little crazy to look at myself in the mirror while I look like someone else.

“I’m liking the idea of a ‘people in TV’ theme, especially British.

“I love an underdog, like Big Nrother characters that are not heard of anymore, troubled celebrities – comedians are great too.

“I hoping to do two or three looks per week!”
