A Man Who Could Be the Kardashian-Jenner at Once, Truly an A-List Doppelganger

A male TV host who has become an Instagram star by using his prodigious make-up skills to transform himself into a slew of female celebrities has gained new fans for his incredible imitation of Caitlyn Jenner.

Paolo Ballesteros, 32, from the Philippines, who rose to internet fame last year with his incredible self-makeovers, has now brought the Kardashian family to life using clever contouring and a range of subtle facial expressions.

The actor and model may be a dab hand with some slap and brushes, but he also uses wigs and even different coloured contact lenses to become an A-list doppelganger.

Ballesteros spends several hours painstakingly recreating the famous features of the stars.

Posted on his Instagram page, @pochoy_29, Ballesteros has now taken on Kylie, Kendall, Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner, as well as Kim and Khloe Kardashian.

The 32-year-old also recently chose to take on the likes of recognizable Hollywood starlets Reese Witherspoon and Dakota Johnson. 

It seems the secret to the TV host's success and is pinpointing the celebrity's most distinguishing feature and exaggerating it on himself.

In transforming himself into 65-year-old Caitlyn Jenner, who recently made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, Ballesteros chose to focus on her sharp cheekbones, as well as her dark wavy hair.

He used the Kardashians' favourite contouring make-up technique using paler tones along the bridge of his nose, forehead and the top of his cheeks to highlight. 

Caitlyn's bone structure was created by darker shading along the sides of his nose, under his cheekbones and along his jawline.

The resemblance is uncanny and Ballesteros himself looks unrecognizable.  

Recreating Kylie Jenner, Ballesteros gave himself extremely pronounced and pouted lips, alluding to the 17-year-old's recent admittance to lip enhancers.

His way with lip-liner and a smoky eye sees him appear to turn into Kris Jenner too. He even mimics her smile and cheekbones, along with the tilt of his head, which brings to mind the reality TV family matriarch. 

Meanwhile he used Kylie Jenner's own lip-liner tricks where she defines beyond the edge of her lips to make them appear fuller, to imitate her pout, while his high brows and contoured chest brilliantly captures the teenager's look.

Somehow the make-up magician slims his face and creates Kendall Jenner's doe eyes and centre-parted hair.  

In mimicking Kim Kardashian, Ballesteros chose to focus on the 34-year-old reality star's recent shot-lived hair transformation to peroxide blonde.

The 32-year-old also perfectly captures the likeness of mother Kris Jenner, 59, donning a slick short black wig and her signature smoky eye makeup. 

Ballesteros's other transformations have included Angelina Jolie, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande.

His popular posts can rack up to 32,000 likes on Instagram, with his Caitlyn Jenner transformation receiving 26,600.

Fans praise Ballesteros's efforts in the comments section of his Instagram account, and also take the opportunity to suggest the stars that the TV host should next attempt. 

The 32-year-old is renowned as the host of Filipino daytime TV series Eat Bulaga! and has also appeared in a string of films in the Philippines.

His imitation of Kim Kardashian will also have people looking twice with his jaw-dropping similarity to the star during her peroxide blonde phase. 

Through careful shading his face looks slimmer and chiselled while his nose appears slim and straight, just like the star's own.

He resorted to green contact lenses and a 'bronde' curly wig to recreate Khloe Kardashian's look. 

Using her signature nude lipgloss and centre-parted hair he managed to capture the youngest Kardashian sister.

The only member of the family he has yet to copy is mother-of-three Kourtney. 

We are dying to see his next batch of impersonations with bated breath.
