Other than the occasional red lip, we don’t often see fashion guru and funny girl Leandra Medine, also known as the Man Repeller, wear much makeup — she’s even written a goose bumps-inducing blog post on why she usually sports a paint-free face. But, the times they are a-changin’! Leandra is diving headfirst into the beauty world, moonlighting as a vlogger for the launch of NARS’ new Dual-Intensity Blush.
As we're sure you could have guessed, this vid is a lot more tongue-in-cheek Man Repeller (case in point: mascara on the forehead) than Michelle Phan — though we do get a guest appearance from the YouTube makeup sensation. And, Phan is not the only one to make a cameo: Toast the dog steps into the director's seat, Simon Doonan plays Leandra’s stunt hands (you know, like a stunt double but for your hands — everyone has one), and the ubiquitous Questlove randomly gets to show off his ping pong skills.
Leandra, we couldn’t be more jazzed about your recent adventure (and nice call, NARS). If you haven't already, watch the short and let her show you the fastest — and funniest — way to take your face from day to night, or "become the Instagram filter of your dreams."
