Internet person Michelle Phan is a make-up wizard—a magician! In this video, she shows the power of make-up as she gives a walkthrough on how to transform yourself into FFVIII's Riona Heartilly.

Besides make-up, Phan completes the look with contacts and a Riona costume, proving that there's more to cosplay than costumes.

If you are not familiar with Phan's cosmetic fireworks, have a gander at her "Gothic Lolita Doll" or Sailor Moon videos. They're in the gallery, above.
