I don't know who they are, but the first thing that popped into my head was, Cindy Sherman.  Great stuff.

Armando, not quite the right smile and I think Salvador's mustache had more curl and more symmetrical.  Some years ago the Cuban Ambassador to the UK was a dead ringer for S.D. but I doubt he would have posed as you did  ;)
Lots of fun and gave my morning a good start  :)

Well done on both. I do like yours a lot though - It might not be the same expression as SD would have done - but I though the expression was really great and it works for me. Not as a copy of SD, but on it's own. nicely done

Armando, I seriously thought at least Mona Lisa was created using your own facial features and liked your job!   :o :o :o

Sorry to disappoint you Akira but I do not get nowhere near to the make up
My chest is a bit more hairy than that, my hands a bit larger and not so good looking  ;D
 
I did set the light, direct a bit, took the photo and did the PP
