Michelle Pfeiffer prides herself on being an all-natural beauty, which is why her recent Instagram post left fans stunned.
The actress, 62, shared an unbelievable selection of photos documenting one of her biggest transformations to date… for her movie Stardust.
Michelle swapped her age-defying complexion and luscious locks for wrinkles and a balding hairline, but the dramatic makeover was purely for the big screen.
The star played the witch, Lamia, in the 2007 fantasy film and her time in the makeup chair still impresses her to this day.

"#TBT. Becoming Lamia. I mean, come on!" she wrote alongside the images which took her fans through the transition.
"Look at the artistry of this!! Thank you to the incredible Barrie Gower, Stuart Bray, Ronnie Spector, Carol Hemming, and the rest of this talented team who made me look so terrifying."
Her followers had to do a double-take too, with many commenting, "wow," while others posted wide-eyed emojis.
Model Helena Christensen took the opportunity to make a quick-witted joke writing: "Unbelievable (me every morning)."

Michelle's transformation took hours
Michelle underwent drastic measures to become the 5000-year-old witch and for most of the filming, her complexion was concealed under prosthetics.
It took more than four hours of makeup every day to make her face look so realistic and her hair was hidden underneath a bald cap and a grey wig.

Getting it off was no easy feat either. She told the Oklahoman how the director, Matthew Vaughn, was left shocked by the ordeal.
"He came in and watched them peel this, incrementally, off my skin. It takes an hour and he’s like, 'Ow, ack, OK, slow down, slow down.' He was horrified."
Her final look was incredible
Michelle’s real-life skincare routine is a far cry from what she had to go through on set.
"I’ve been using Sodashi skincare for a very long time," she told Oprah magazine. "I saw that the ingredients were mostly natural, and they don’t make me break out.
"I have such reactive skin that if I find something that performs and agrees with me, I stick with it. I haven’t changed what I use on my skin in over ten years. My routine is simple: I cleanse, I moisturise - that’s it."
