Amy Chance Is 'The One' for Sky Ferreira
Amy Chance's talent was tested on the set of Sky Ferreira's "You're Not the One" video shoot. "The clothes that Sky expected to wear didn't arrive to the location because the stylist had a family emergency, and we went into problem-solving mode," the makeup artist explained. "Sky turned to me and said, 'It's up to you ... it's going to have to be about the makeup.' Of course, I felt bad that Sky was disappointed; however, at the same time, I was excited for the rare opportunity to create a makeup look that was in no way dependent on the styling."
Drawing inspiration from the song – "it's a breakup anthem; she's fed up, she's done, and she's moving on" – and working with faux wet hair, Chance used Chanel Automatic Liquid Liner in Noir and Lancôme Hypnôse mascara in Noir for Ferreira's cat eyes, "an exaggerated version of how Sky does her own makeup for the stage." She contoured the musician's cheeks with Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and NARS Penny Lane cream blush, after evening out her skin with a bit of Clé De Peau concealer in Ivory. "I bleached her eyebrows for mega drama and topped it all off with a slightly overdrawn, dark-red lip, which was Tom Ford in Black Orchid."
For Chance, the "You're Not the One" shoot "was a prime example of a creative team coming together and showcasing each other's work. Oftentimes, the hair, makeup, or styling crews keep to themselves on set – by design, we start the job separated from the rest of the group, in a dressing room – but it's important to get to know everyone else. A director of photography can be a makeup artist's best friend."
