Watch this clip from The Fifth Element (Luc Besson, 1997) very closely:
See at the end when Leeloo (the orange-haired female character, played by Milla Jovovich) puts the Chanel box up to her eyes like a camera? That’s actually supposed to be an instant makeup applicator! You can see that her eyes are newly made-up when she pulls the object away from her face.
Although this is just in a science fiction film and not yet a real thing, one can only imagine how long it will be till something like this exists. (If you can believe it, you can achieve it, right?) Airbrush makeup and makeup that’s applied temporary-tattoo-style seem to be leading the instant makeup charge, but for now, Leeloo’s all-in-one instant makeup box remains a thing of the 23rd century.
What futuristic makeup tool would you like to see in the near future?
