Source: Omote “Living Makeup” Uses Mind-Blowing Projection Mapping

Nobumichi Asai is a Japanese artist who creates this real-time face tracking and projection installation, together with a team of CGI, graphic design and makeup specialists.

The project, called Omote ("face" or "surface" in Japanese), is a breakthrough in motion tracking and projection mapping since it projects the computer graphics onto moving location, the model's face in this case.

Some say this is kind of electronic makeup, which constantly changes while follwoing the person's movements. 

The video below shows the best its concept:

Amazing virtual makeup, don't you think?


Actually, Asai's work also includes 3D projections on buildings and at different events in Japan.

For example this one in Yokohama:
