Lernert & Sander: Natural Beauty on

Want to know how much a year’s worth of makeup looks like? Well, filmmakers Lernert and Sander set to find out in their new short, Natural Beauty (via Bellasugar). The shoot took 9 hours to complete the 365 layers, while model Hannelore Knuts sat patiently throughout (since she was pretty much fastened between the two panels, they said everything she drank or ate had to come through a straw: juice, and a granola and yogurt mix).

How much makeup did it take? 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. Don’t worry though — before they set to shoot, they did grab an intern to test the makeup and make sure all that glob wouldn’t kill her. “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.” That poor guinea pig intern!
