Pretty Vulgar is a vintage-inspired makeup, beauty, and cosmetic supplier. Their brand philosophy lies in the dichotomy of the individual — how we as people are beautiful in our multifaceted contradictions. We are not just one shade of anything. Rather, we are a storm of emotion that swings from utterly beautiful and gritty to sinister and seductive.
Pretty Vulgar came to us to create a video production that embodied these shifting personalities (that of the white dove and the black swan). Their products had just been accepted into Sephora, which was a big deal for their brand. This actually made our job more challenging. Sephora wanted Pretty Vulgar to create a video that synced elements of a company profile with that of a tutorial. Even more difficult, we had just one day to complete the project. In the end, we created a video with a convincing brand narrative and seamlessly included enough information about Pretty Vulgar products for Sephora employees to inform their clients with.
