Rich macro images and precision camera moves captured slow motion makeup elements. The CG team augmented these assets, and created brush swipes and hued explosions. Metallic powders were used for the paintbrush cityscape, to create a twinkling effect.
2D lead artist Antoine Douadi led the team to animate and place each cosmetic gesture, giving the spot the elegant look. Mill colorist, Aline Sinquin worked with the directors to push the vivid shades, making them more glittery and more dramatic.
The luminescent Estée Lauder products gave the final spot a grandiose but simple finish.
