One Year of Make-Up in three Minutes

(Youtube Direktmakeup, via MeFi)

Das Makeup von 365 Tagen, aufgetragen in einer einzigen Session. Lernert & Sanders Kurzfilme hatte ich hier bereits öfter, am bekanntesten sind wohl die schmelzenden Hasen.

Lernert & Sander embrace the urge for cosmetic overkill in their surreal short Natural Beauty. Makeup artist Ferry van der Nat and his assistant Vanessa Chan helped to execute the vision, slathering a host of Ellis Faas products on Belgian beauty Hannelore Knuts, who was recently named the new face of Swiss fashion house Akris. Lernert & Sander began collaborating in 2006; since then they’ve done everything from melt a chocolate bunny with a hairdryer to repurpose household appliances as sex toys in the name of video art. We asked the co-conspirators to break down the shoot in detail.
