Beautiful and Complicated

I am fascinated by the digital visual arts. Here’s a nice video of how some of the color drawings we see online get made (comic artist Shouri draws a self-portrait for her banner).

I don’t wear much makeup. I put on some eye shadow, mascara, and lipstick, and I am good to go. What I do is so minimal that it likely doesn’t even qualify as makeup. The skill, time, labor, and cost associated with full makeup are just staggering. Here is an example. Just count all those different products used!


  1. Enjoyed both videos. Thanks. I also never do any makeup (not even lipstick anymore), but this was a powerful video on the power of makeup.

  2. I wear lipstick most days and eyeliner on a night out. The makeup video enthralled me. It’s amazing. It’s art!

  3. I’ve never worn makeup because I have no idea how to do it and never really saw the point (I like to sleep instead) but I’m quite tempted to follow along with the vids!
