Seeing double! Jelena Peric, a Croatian makeup artist, is gaining rapid popularity because of her resemblance to one of Hollywood’s most notable figures: Kim Kardashian. Peric, who goes by @j_make_up on Instagram, looks staggeringly like the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35. With her long, sleek dark locks, sharp features and plump pout, it’s nearly impossible to tell the two apart!
Many of Peric’s glamorous selfies feature Kardashian’s signature look: strong brows, contoured and highlighted cheekbones, long false lashes and light lipstick. Peric has even sampled Mrs. Kanye West’s style with monochromatic ensembles, slip dresses, bodycon skirts and a camouflage jacket. And plenty of people have taken notice. Multiple outlets have marveled at Peric’s likeness, and her follower count has gone up with nearly each hit. On May 26 at around noon, Lipstick.com reported that Peric had 701k devotees. As of May 27, she has 706k!
While Peric doesn’t mind the attention, she still wants to stay true to her selfie. “I know that there's a lot of comparisons going on in here but that's not what's most important. I'm flattered to be compared with someone like KK but on the other hand I would like to stay Jelena and nothing else,” she captioned a May 26 photo that showed her recent clippings from The Sun, the Daily Mail and the Mirror. “I also never said I look like her, in any aspect, nor I think that but hey, if people like to say that, what can I do? I'm def not trying to be someone else like some mean people are trying to say.”
