Applying 365 Days Worth of Makeup in 3 Minutes

Dutch directors Lernert and Sander‘s film, Natural Beauty, shows the application of 365 layers of makeup to Belgian supermodel Hannelore Knuts in a 3 minute short.

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.
