We’ve all seen those makeup videos circulating the web of unattractive women (or sometimes even men!) using cosmetics to their best advantage and transforming their faces from blah to beautiful.

But while they’re entertaining, they’re hardly fodder for personal inspiration - something as important as the way you look should really be left to the professionals, no?

That's why we’ve picked out three regular faces from the runways - models who sometimes look so different from one show to another that we can hardly recognise them. If makeup is meant to be transformational, these girls have nailed it.
