365 days of makeup

in the video “Natural Beauty”, two Dutch artists Lernert and Sander go nuts, applying a year’s worth of make up all at once to belgain model Hannelore Knuts’ face.

it’s interesting to see that one of things we do to look younger and prettier, in this case applying make up, has a much more aging (and gooey) effect when we see it all at once.

this reminds me of people who think you can sleep for ten years, then stay awake for another ten. similarly cramming a year’s worth of ‘beautifying’ into one sitting isn’t likely to lead to extreme beauty.
