When COVID-19 left makeup artist Taylor Radford with no work and plenty of time on her hands, she decided to get creative.
She might be known for getting brides ready for their special day or getting someone dolled up for a big event, but Ms Radford decided to have a go special effects makeup.
Her first challenge? Common phobias.
Ms Radford transformed her face to show everything from trypophobia - a fear of holes - to germaphobia.

"Although I am known locally for my brides and glam makeup, I've always been a horror buff and forever dreamed of working with SFX makeup, so having time at home has been amazing because I've just been teaching myself," Ms Radford said
"Plus everyone loves something that makes them cringe. Even if they don't, they still talk about it."
As expected, the Dubbo makeup artist said her challenge was loved, but hated at the same time.
For herself, Ms Radford said doing makeup was calming and gave her a release from her thoughts.
"I have always turned to creative outlets growing up when I'm not in my very best headspace so as time has gone on I've learnt to continue my creativity in whatever way I can to keep myself at ease," she said.
For each of her looks, Ms Radford said she had about 30 to 40 minutes before "the toddler bangs down the door or the older two kids are fighting". But before she even starts working on it, she said most of it is already planned step-by-step in her head.
If there are props involved, the kids help her make them throughout the day.
Overall, Ms Radford, who has been a makeup artist and beauty therapist for nine years, said lockdown had had good and bad times.
"Bad times being losing my income, my everyday routine and pulling my hair out homeschooling, but the pros of it have been amazing as I have been able to slow down from the chaos and enjoy my little family," she said
"It really makes you appreciate the little things when you are pretty much forced to stop."
While for now Ms Radford has moved onto her next lockdown challenge - characters from American Horror Story - she said she would love to be able to horror looks on other people for either Halloween parties or dress ups.
