They Put 365 Days Worth Of Make Up On Her Face…What She Looks Like At The End?! GROSS!!
There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the subject of make up in recent years, and it’s gotten a lot of reaction from the public. Women are simultaneously praised and judged whether or not they wear make up, and the general consensus is “ignore the haters, girl just do what you want!” With all of the body positivity floating around, it’s easy to get swept up into all of the drama. Women wear make up for a million different reasons, and it shouldn’t matter to anyone else what you choose to put on your face. As long as you are happy, that’s all that matters.
These two Dutch artists took this idea and flipped it upside down on it’s head. They are known for their quirky art style, and took the idea of “make up” and ran with it. They thought of all the different things they could do with this concept, and decided on a simple yet powerful idea: application.
What if we took an entire year’s worth of make up and applied it all at once, layer after layer? All of it. Just one complete coat at a time. They used foundation, blush, eye shadow, brow creme, and lip shade, layered one after another after another. They went through 7 bottles of foundation, two bottles of eye cream, three lip pens, and two bottles of blush. They just used an eyebrow brush to keep the foundation away from her eyes. All in all, they used over 228ml of make up. That is a LOT of make up.
The result is everything you hoped it would be. They weren’t trying to make a statement, but viewers have interpreted this video in ways that make sense to them, and in the end, that’s exactly what art is supposed to do.
