Behind-the-scenes video showcases the light-painting technique

In Issue 123 of Make-Up Artist magazine, Portugal-based conceptual make-up artist Joana Bastos created exclusive images using light-painting photo techniques. Along with photographer Carles Calero and a team of assistants, a hairstylist, a videographer and an editor, Bastos produced a unique look perfect for our Tech Issue.

“When I created the technology concept, I’m thinking about an evolved human, with white skin, technologic details, with some special effects of make-up and body painting in silver, black and white color, but with simple and clean look, to be like android or humanoid being,” said Bastos.

How did they do it? Watch the behind-the-scenes video below to see it come to life. For more details and images, buy Issue 123—on newsstands or here—starting Nov. 9.
