I’m a ‘catfish’ with no front teeth – all it takes is makeup to turn me into Mariah Carey
A makeup artist who is missing some of her upper teeth has wowed fans with her incredible ‘catfish’ beauty transformation and has even drawn comparisons to Mariah Carey.
Edmonton’s Sarah Andres, who goes by @lashesandlosing on TikTok, recently shared a video to her 747,700 followers, showing how she transformed her home makeup studio.
Suddenly, every visible pore disappeared from the self-taught makeup artist’s skin in the footage – and she changed from her animal print dressing gown and casual ponytail to a more elegant getup – a plunging neck dress with her locks styled like Mariah Carey.
Fans were quick to point out her uncanny resemblance to the award-winning singer. While it’s unclear if this was Sarah’s intention, the talented TikToker welcomed the comparison in the comments.
However, some followers were not so kind as one warned: ‘Aren’t these guys scary? You never know.’

Sarah finished off her full face makeup with a deep pink lip gloss and added her sultry smoky eyeshadow with a pair of false eyelashes.

The video, showing her resemblance to the Always Be My Baby singer, has been flooded with dozens of comments praising the beauty influencer, who lost two of her front teeth in a quad bike accident.
Some asked Sarah for a full makeup tutorial, and many described her transformation as ‘amazing’.
Proud of her talent, she wasn’t afraid to admit her bumpy transformation, even calling herself ‘#Catfish’ for her 747.7K fans to see.
However, although the self-taught makeup artist has amassed a whopping 8.4 million likes on the social media platform, not all comments have been positive.
Some were skeptical that makeup was her only aid, with one viewer claiming the TikTok sensation ‘used a filter to cover her nasolabial folds’.
Another, who appeared to be a man, criticized the Canadian woman, saying: ‘Until you sleep next to them in the morning’.
But many came to the influencer’s defense, assuring him that ‘haters are jealous’.
‘I think you are great at what you do. The makeup application is flawless,’ one fan wrote.

And while her fans were mesmerized, they weren’t content with just the short 12-second video – instead urging Sarah to drop a full makeup tutorial so her fans can emulate the beautiful singer too.
The TikToker, who hails from Edmonton in eastern Canada, often wows fans with her makeup transformations, using before and after frames to show the stark difference that can be achieved through the power of makeup.
This comes after the 47-year-old Kansas woman posted a video showing off her natural beauty and what she looks like when her face is all glam.
The ‘Catfish Queen’ mom is also able to dramatically change her look using products like concealer, foundation, mascara, eyeshadow and lipstick – and many people on the internet can’t believe it’s the same person throughout her videos.
