Natural Beauty
A film by Lernert & Sander

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. The whole process took 9 nine hours, during which supermodel Hannelore Knuts couldn’t move and only eat and drink through a straw. We used 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.
