What does a year of make-up look like...?

Here's your answer, courtesy of directors Lernert & Sander and the brilliant Nowness website.
       Over nine hours, make-up artist Ferry van der Nat and his assistant Vanessa Chan applied 365 days' worth of Ellis Faas make-up to the (so-patient) model's face:  seven bottles of foundation, three lip pens, two bottles of blush - and more.  (Relax:  they condensed it into a couple of minutes of film.)
     They did allow model Hannelore Knuts to eat and drink.  Through a straw!
     Though can we just add:  Don't.  Try.  This.  At.  Home.
