Saw this video and I was like ew due to amount of layers applied and what it looks like.
“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.
Soundtrack: No music on our shoots! Unless we do a music video and the artists need to lip-sync. But we don’t like lip-syncing, so that never happens in our videos. Music distracts.
Prep work: We tested a 100-layer session a few days before on our intern, who is a man. We wanted to make sure that this amount of makeup wouldn’t kill a person. It didn’t kill our intern so we trusted everything would be fine on Hannelore.
Crisis averted: There was always the “we’ve run out of makeup” stress. But Ellis Faas has her office right around the corner so we could call and get more [Foundation] S103.
Souvenirs: We saved the white construction for Hannelore’s face, so if we plan to do a “two years of makeup” we already have the perfect face frame. “
