All in a Daydream’s Work: Detective

Perhaps I’ve been watching too many Law & Order marathons (haven’t we all?), but a dream job sequence cannot be done without life as a detective! Just imagine wearing a crisp trench coat and mysteriously going around town trying to crack the case. Get ready, ’cause those Facebook stalking skills will finally be put to the test!

On a moody road in Los Angeles, we shot Bri with this classic car as part of our “All in a Daydream’s Work” series with Designlovefest. The sun set magically in the backdrop bringing everything to life.

This is definitely the look of a dreamy detective!

To uncover this look, we started to create a flawless complexion with the POREfessional pro balm and hello flawless oxygen wow liquid foundation. If you first apply primer to a clean, moisturized face, foundation will go on more smoothly and help makeup last longer.

For an undetectable, yet natural coverage, for dark circles and fine lines, we applied our new hydrating crease-control concealer, fakeup! This lightweight formula has Vitamin E and apple seed extract for ultimate moisturization. Dryness is the culprit for  those fine lines and dark circles. You can also use fakeup for other boo-boos, like blemishes, not just under the eyes.

Next we applied a soft wash of hoola bronzer allover Bri’s complexion to create a soft, warm matte finish. Next we applied three brush strokes of high beam to the apple of her cheeks  & brow bones for an ultimate dewy, radiant glow! With this satiny pink liquid highlighter a little goes a long way and is buildable for a subtle or super sexy glow!

When Bri isn’t wearing shades to hide her identity, she has a gorgeous cat eye! MEOW! We applied longwear powder shadow in thanks a latte, a golden brown shade, lightly over her lids with a contour shade of kiss me, I’m tipsy, a spiced brown shade, in the creases of her eyelids. For a dramatic look that deserves a second glance, we applied a thick line of magic ink jet-black liquid liner to Bri’s eyeline. (For precise application of liquid liner, try resting your elbow on a sturdy surface, like a countertop.) As always, we finished the eye look with they’re real! mascara.

The final piece of the puzzle is hydra-smooth lip color in dare me, a luscious red shade, (out this fall!).
