The magic of make-up, photography and a good model

Almost every other blog posted about the 17-30 editorial with Anna Selezneva and Eva Herzigova, but this one is so much better.

When I saw the first picture I thought: “Hey, this little girl looks exactly like Eniko…” and then I saw the next photo: “Wait, it IS Eniko!”

The editorial is a series of pictures with the same model in different ages, everything done with amazing make-up and lighting. I wonder how they have made the wrinkles.

De 10 à 60 ans
Vogue Paris November 2008
with Eniko Mihalik by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin
styled by Carine Roitfeld, make-up by Lisa Butler

Remember IT IS THE SAME MODEL on every photo
I love this pic and Eniko’s expression. It is like she’s really that happy.scanned by me

    un beso

  8. That is amazing! Do you think they colored her hair or is it the lighting.

    Muy bonita!

  9. Increible!!! bueno mejor dicho, super creible!

    Por cierto, me encanta tu blog, tengo meses siguiendolo. Me inspiras a seguir con el mio, a pesar de que no es dedicado solo a moda.

    Me entere de tu blog por un articulo en una revista local aca en Panama. Sigue tan maravillosa como siempre.

  10. pero la primera es la misma modelo???parece una niña de 10 años de verdad!

  11. OMG! that’s the work of genius! amazing job :) thanks for the scans! ♥

  12. Me encantan las fotos, y el anillo tambien en la ultima foto!

  15. ¡¡que fuerte!! es que ademas no son solo las arrugas, sino la perdida de grasa en la piel

  17. What a beautiful shoot and fantastic makeup and/or Photoshopping. I hope this is for aging gracefully, although with the mention of botox has me a little worried (I should really brush up on my French!)

  18. it’s so clever, and so very realistic. because it’s quite hard to pinpoint the changes even though they’re very clear.

  20. La revista se llama Ellas, y es un suplemento que viene todos los viernes con un periódico local.

    El artículo fue publicado hace varios meses, no tengo el recorte, sino te enviaría una copia para que lo vieras. Hablaban sobre diferentes blogs, entre esos el tuyo y hablaron hasta de Frowie!

    Tienen una versión online, aquí tienes el link: http://www.ellasvirtual.com/index.asp

  21. Este editorial me da un miedo que me cago, hablo de él en el post de ayer. Es que me resulta inquietante, sobre todo la primera foto. También la última. Un beso.

  23. wow! so clever. wish i have such a pout in 40 years though :P

    +i LUV this lace bra on the 40s pic. is it la perla or for once sth that i could afford?!! could u check this for me? ty ty (:

  24. Love your new banner and the heavy eye make-up in some of these pics!

    xoxox,

  25. El poder del maquillaje, insuperable. Adoro las transformaciones a las que se puede someter a alguien teniendo u poco de mano para aplicar un buen maquillaje, cuando yo trabajo con látex para hacer heridas o semejante en cortometrajes disfruto realmente viendo como una cara puede verse transformada en poco tiempo. Lo mismo sucede con un maquillaje más suave, sólo que el efecto puede ser muy variado, caracterizaciones las hay de muchos tipos. Un 10 para Vogue París y enhorabuena por tu blog.

  26. these photos are seriously so amazing! I love the transformation! Thanks for sharing!

  34. amazing pictures
    love how they did that age thing!

  36. Jimena • Nov 17, 2008, 20:41
  37. Ohhhh myyy! love her at 30’s. That was such a great idea… a double extra point for Vogue Paris!!!

  38. Queeee bueno, gracias por enseñárnoslo.

  40. This is amazing,
    yet scary – demonstrating the ‘plastic surgery’-type face as a norm.
    Thanks for finding this!

  41. That is CRAZY!!! how did they do that?

  42. tkishi • Nov 20, 2008, 22:23
  43. This is incredibly great! We must remember the make-up artists and the photographer of it. They’re wizards :)

  44. Rizzo • Nov 20, 2008, 22:52
  45. Frankly, I’m not very impressed. 30-60, her face looks exactly the same. And 30 is a make-up train wreck.

  46. lucy. • Nov 21, 2008, 1:04
  47. Wow! What a spread. Thank you so much for sharing. I love the teens, 30’s and 60’s. So cool.

  54. This is beautiful! I amazed at the power of makeup! I am so glad I found your blog, it’s beautiful. I wish I was at la playa! :)

  55. this is great……perhaps they used some photoshop?

  56. Emily • Nov 22, 2008, 2:44

  60. Why is everyone gushing about this – I don’t see what the fuss is about, what’s so great about this? She looks the same age in most of them, fairly average looking fashion shots…

  63. woooo pretty amazing and also inspiring… the power of make up, photography is just unbelievable!! i remember a photo serie of nowadays actresses transformed into other famouse women (i think there was drew barrymore as jean harlow, etc)

  64. Very nice — and you can tell it’s a French shoot, because 40 and 50 look the hottest. :-) If this had been done in the US, they’d have made 20 look best and had everything else look frumpy. 40 would have had soccer mom hair, and they wouldn’t even have bothered to do 60.

    France is a confusing place, but they get it right when it comes to stuff like this. :-)

  80. An excellent example of the role of makeup in today’s beauty obssessed world. Makes you wonder how much of the glamor and style we adore in the celebrities we routinely worship is due to the art of makeup!

  93. That is amazing! she looks so young and fresh in the first one like a little girl and then older and older!

  94. awesome collection thanks from sharing from childhood to old age
    thanks for sharing it

  95. Her skin is always the same “age” ( the initial ‘youth’ shot is pretexed from a freakish photo-angle and relies upon the model’s scrunched shoulders, doh); SVP, it is a Jejeune product Dis- Art. What number of photo attempts were discarded? 250, 1000? A whole day, or 3 hours? Artifice? We observe several soap opera stereotypes. A surface evocation, barely depth, I apologize. We notice a magic from a stylist and make-up man that dazzles us with… some changes in hair, clothing. The biggest boner is the obtuse circle-jerk of comments. The truly turgid turn-off is due to of the heaps of flaccid fanboys, STFU! The rapturous comments evoke a vacuum of discernment here. How can a valid context of fashion be unaware of the early 1980’s? Those Fourteen year-old beautiful creatures that were the frosting for so many magazine covers. In conclusion: Esthetics requires care, weeding-out the Graffiti Comments. Because of the the www some of these lipstick Pollyannas shall assist: your deployment of blogspot’s free filters to block some flurry of comment spam strewn by Dik4 drive-bys.
    Please continue to Enjoy your pursuits! Strive! Sorry for being stern.
