Frustrated boyfriends, annoyed women, and clown-hating people everywhere have muttered that there most definitely is such a thing as "too much makeup" for quite some time. But now they've got viral video proof to back up that claim.

Directors Sander Plugs and Lernert Engelberts enlisted makeup artist Ferry van der Nat and his assistant Vanessa Chan to practically smother a model — Belgian beauty Hannelore Knuts — in makeup. One year's worth of makeup, to be exact.

The process of applying 365 layers of makeup took nine long hours and required seven bottles of foundation, two bottles of eye makeup, three lip pens, and two bottles of blush.

The end result? Well ... see for yourself: 

The question on most minds is "why would anyone do this," and the answer is simple: Because they can. Plugs and Engelberts are no strangers to viral videos and have "done everything from melt a chocolate bunny with a hairdryer to repurpose household appliances as sex toys in the name of video art" already.
