Well this is one way of blagging your way into VIP areas.

Makeup artist Adrienne Kennedy Campion shows just how long it takes to transform herself into Conor McGregor, using just makeup and crepe wool.

Adrienne, who was Vincent Browne's makeup artist for nine years, spent three weeks studying Conor's faces and expressions before she started working on this look.

"I am not usually an advocate to violence and violent sports, but something has drawn me to Conor McGregor," she told Independent.ie.

"The actual makeup was just blending eyeshadows - light to dark and the facial hair was crepe wool, which is used in makeup special effects."

This is not the first makeup transformation the seasoned pro has filmed, having previously tried her hand at Phil Lynott  Muhammad Ali and David Beckham.

She even got to try her hand at transforming Nathan Carter for his upcoming RTE show.

"I made him into a batty old hotel porter , an old elegant lady and back again to a dotty limo driver."
