Make Me Up: Doll is the first of a series of videos that explain how to paint one's face as a different character. I was inspired to do this when I was exposed to the numerous amounts of makeup tutorials online--specifically, tutorials by VenusAngelic (Venus Palermo.) Venus is a 15 year old girl who is obsessed with looking like a ball joint doll. She, like many other girls, are obsessed with making their eyes appear larger than they naturally are. I made this video to question society's implications about beauty. My doll is a persona that I have been developing throughout my photographs. She is rude, sexy, awkward, and confrontational. I wanted the essence of her persona to appear at the end of the tutorial, like a caricature skit. I purposely create characters with over the top makeup--face paint--to emphasize the satirical nature of my makeup tutorials.
