For this project I asked a number of people if they had any makeup they didn’t want anymore. Being a makeup lover myself, I know the mentality is not to throw it out if it is perfectly good, but may not be on trend anymore or may have been replaced by new makeup I had my eye on. That being said I collect a lot of makeup from people with the intention of putting together an aesthetically pleasing display of a large quantity of makeup. After this display is shot, I am going to empty/smash/destroy the different makeup pieces. At the end of the video there will be a scene of the broken or empty makeup showing what a big mess it can create and how much is going to waste. Consumerism in cosmetics displayed through the aesthetic of nice makeup, makeup being put to use, and what’s left when you are done using it are the main themes I will try to capture.
