This video shows what a year's worth of makeup looks like when it's applied all in one go. Directors Lenert & Sanders shot this piece, titled "Natural Beauty," with the help of Belgian model Hannelore Knuts, who took 365 days worth of foundation, eye shadow, lipstick, and blush in one multi-hour session. You can read details about the project here.

Many conventional beauty products are still made with ingredients that have been shown to cause health problems, so exercises like "Natural Beauty" have merit in showing the sheer amount of chemical exposure women are exposed to when they sit in front of the mirror and "put on their face" everyday.
