A woman billed as ‘TikTok’s biggest catfish’ has shared shocking photos of herself before and after applying makeup — and the internet can’t believe her transformation. Jessy Volk, of Saskatchewan, Canada, who has amassed more than 966,000 followers on TikTok, often shares “get ready with me”-esque videos of her doing her hair and makeup — and she’s stunned social media users about it. how different she looks with and without glam.
The influencer first went viral last year after showing off her epic makeup skills, and since then she has racked up over 23 million likes for her videos. One TikTok — which has been viewed more than three million times — started having her lip synced to Mura Masa’s song Love$ick without makeup on. Pimples could be seen scattered all over her all-natural face, before transitioning into another clip of her with a totally glamorous face – with her acne completely hidden by the makeup.
Another viral video, which has been viewed a million times, featured Jessy singing and dancing to Aladdin’s Prince Ali, as clips of her before and after applying her makeup flashed across the screen. Many of Jessy’s viewers are amazed at her ability to transform herself, and they often flood the comment section of her videos with their reaction. “You’re such an insanely talented bestie,” one person wrote, while another added, “I wish I could do my makeup like this.”
“I live for you before and after, you have serious skill,” said someone else.
A fourth comment read, “The power of makeup is so cool.”
However, others accused her of “catfishing” and called her ability to change her appearance “so scary.” “Why are you catfishing?” one person asked, while another user wrote, “That’s why I have trust issues.”
“It’s called false advertising,” said someone else. “I would need a full refund tomorrow morning,” another comment read, while another viewer commented, “So terrifying how this could happen.”
“That’s like slapping a Ferrari sticker on a Honda,” wrote another.
Despite the sometimes negative reaction, Jessy doesn’t seem bothered by the haters and continues to proudly show off her ability to customize her look with makeup.
She recently posted a video sharing some of the products she enjoys using, including ELF’s Brow Lift and Power Grip Primer, Dragon Beauty’s Dragunfire Color Corrector, ABH’s Dip Brow, Nars’ Soft Matte Cream Concealer, Dior’s Forever Skin Foundation, Major Sculpt Cream Contour by Patrick Ta and Vanish Concealer by Hourglass.
She has also reflected on her viral fame, writing in another video: “When I went viral for being the ‘biggest catfish on TikTok’ I became a beauty influencer and got in my bag [of money]†
Jessy takes pride in “normalizing” real skin and showing off her flaws, and often gets comments from people who say she’s given them more “confidence.”
“People like you make me feel more confident about acne,” wrote one TikTok user. Another said: ‘The results are always flawless, but the way you normalize the real skin…I show it to my daughters’, to which Jessy replied: ‘This made my heart so full and that’s exactly why I do what I do.’
