In the 80’s the look of this video was everywhere, since that time the look has become iconic. Robert Palmer’s (RIP) “Addicted to Love” may have been a catchy tune, but in my opinion its Massive Hit status was due in large part to the music video. Nothing really even happens in the video. What is legendary about the video is the look and aesthetic, both of which were heavily dependent on the game-changing makeup designed by makeup artist, Martin Pretorius. Watch as Martin Pretorius HIMSELF demos how he created this look. That’s right my friends, this is not an “interpretation”, this is the real deal by the artist who created it. Enjoy and learn… (video starts after the commercial)
and in case I have any readers who are so scary-young they’ve never seen the “Addicted to Love” video…
