ISIS fighters have been trying to escape Mosul in recent weeks after their stronghold fell to Iraqi forces, so they apparently tried to pass off as women to get through the border, albeit with really dismal results. We know, we know, they look really Daesh-ing, to say the least.

Singaporean blogger and online personality Wendy Cheng, better known as Xiaxue, has been doing makeup tutorials for the longest time, so she decided to do one to mimic the look of a glamorously hideous ISIS fighter. We have to say, with all her efforts, she could most likely pass off as one. 

Plus, it’s really not that hard to do, as her look’s just made up of talcum powder, children’s markers, blusher, some fake beards (or you could just draw them) and lipstick smear for the final touch. 

It’s pretty much the epitome of crossdressing gone horribly wrong.
