For Israeli makeup artist Ilana Kolihanov, dogged dedication to her work brings bona fido results.

In her latest work posted to Youtube, Kolihanov presents the process by which she tranforms herself into her pet Siberian Husky, Ivy.

Kolihanov, whose works include tigers, aliens, Pirates of the Caribbean’s Davy Jones and Alice in Wonderland’s Cheshire Cat, explains that Huskies “are one of my very favorite breeds, so I just wanted to turn myself into (one) for a day.”

To achieve the authentic furry look, Kolihanov uses water colors and an eyebrow comb.

“We’re like twins!” Kolihanov, 21, who teaches at Tel Aviv’s Yarin Shahaf beauty school, tells her pet at the end of the video. The similarity is indeed rather uncanny.

Tongue hanging out, Ivy herself does not seem particularly impressed. After all, she did perfect that look first.
