Most of us are scared of something.
I know I’m scared of opening the fridge up on a Friday night to find we have no wine!
Whether it’s something going bump in the night, or the fear of good news (yes, that’s a real thing).
Fears can come in a variety of ways, from rational fears to irrational ones, to even social fears. We all have them.
But there are some pretty weird fears and phobias that will leave you scratching your head in confusion.
Some people are scared of clowns, others are scared of dogs, while some people are terrified of heights.
Well there’s a fear called trypophobia, which is the fear of tiny holes.
It’s an odd fear, but it’s actually based on a very primal fear.
According to recent research, the brain associates the repeated pattern of holes with disease and wounds, something we honestly wouldn’t want to be around!
Well there’s one woman who is scaring the internet with her incredible make up skills, and it’s enough to send a shiver down your spine!
Just a little warning, some may find these photos uncomfortable or distressing.
Bridgette Trevino, who is 24 years old, has started sharing videos and photos of her impressive special effect make up online, and it’s started to trigger people all over the world.
Pretty impressive, right?
Her make up transformations are so realistic, it’s enough to make anyone feel spooked. Even me!
Trypophobia, an intense or irrational fear of clusters of bumps or holes which is thought to affect around 20 percent of people.
It can even cause them to have panic attacks and even feel nausea! How crazy is that?
While the condition isn’t officially recognised by the American Psychiatric Association it’s still a major problem for quite a few people!
Bridgette posted a video of her hand, which was covered in small circular wounds which dripped blood.
This perfect mix of fear and phobia was enough to make it go viral!
It wasn’t long before the video was shared around the world, gaining over 60,000 shares and a whole lot of backlash!
If you don’t think it’s that freaky then you may want to check it out again below!
Bridgette is an amateur make up artisit, and she was forced to put a warning on her posts so people would be very sure that the video wasn’t real and it was all just make up.
She uses special makeup which allows her to create some pretty incredible designs and horror movie effects.
The 24 year old was soon bombarded with messages from some very concerned people from Facebook.
Facebook even blurred out the video with the warning “This video may show graphic violence or gore.”
How crazy is that?!
The bombardments of complaints haven’t put her off yet, she claims that she’s become even more inspired to work on her make up because people think it looks so real!
“I’ve had a lot of reactions, some good and some bad.
“People have gone as far as reporting my work and have sent me messages of concern to check I hadn’t seriously hurt myself.
“I’ve even had threats to try to make me take down the video and pictures.
“I understand that trypophobia is a real thing, although only a small population actually has this.
“A lot of people have claimed to have had panic attacks because of my work.
“I sympathise but it also only encourages me more. If it’s not scary or doesn’t get that response I’m not doing my job properly.”
It’s really great seeing someone sharing a passion for something like make up and pushing boundaries and expectations with it.
For these people makeup is a way of creating the person who they want to be.
A way to highlight and amplify the features we like, like our cheekbones, eyes, lips, even eyebrows.
If it makes you feel better and it’s not hurting anyone, why shouldn’t you use makeup?
However, makeup can be used for more than just going out to a dinner party or making you look nice for work or special occasions.
It can also be used to transform you into something else.
Makeup is heavily used when it comes to fancy dress costumes. But that’s not all.
It can also be used to create optical illusions on your very own body.
What do you think about this incredible make up special effects? Pretty impressive, right?
