This Makeup Look Took 8 Hours To Create

A video posted by GIVENCHY (@givenchyofficial) on

We always think of makeup as art, but this new video from Givenchy blew us away. Always innovative makeup artist Pat McGrath created these looks for the Fall Winter 2015 men’s show, and we can't stop watching this super cool video.  McGrath shared on Instagram that she used paint, glitter, sequins and crystals to create the sparkly skull look, and that the model spent eight hours in the chair while Pat and her team worked their magic. Other looks included peeling cracked glitter, crystals, sequins and seashells. It's a great reminder that makeup can be truly transformational, and a real expression of creativity. See how the look was created below.
