For this video, "Natural Beauty," Dutch artists Lernert and Sander took Belgian supermodel Hannelore Knuts and applied a year's worth of makeup in one sitting to the model's face. That is 365 days worth.




Here is the rundown about the concept and shoot by Lernert and Sander:

Mission Statement: We wanted to apply 365 layers of makeup in one day to see how much is needed to go from a natural look to an outrageous one.

Production time: It was a relaxed shoot but it took us nearly nine hours non-stop to apply all the layers to Hannelore’s face.

Magic ingredients: Seven bottles of Foundation S103; two bottles of Creamy Eyes E107; three Milky Lips L205 pens; and two bottles of Blush S301. All together 228.40ml of makeup.

Lunch menu: Hannelore was fixed between panels for the whole shoot, so everything she ate or drank came from a straw: juice, and a granola and yogurt mix. I think she had sushi on her train back to Brussels.


The video was made in conjunction with Nowness.
