HOW TO

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!).

Roll the credits! We’ve solved this beauty mystery!

  12. Office Love says:

    It is actually weird, i was on your web site just 15 min.
    before, once the web browser i use Maxthon was freezing to death and trigged
    a CTD, did you added some new plugins or modified anything else which could probably result in
    this kind of a behavior? I visit your internet site pretty regulary and by no means had this before!

  13. Kara says:

    Heya! It appears as though we both have a interest for the same
    thing. Your blog, “All in a Daydream’s Work: The Detective | benefitcosmetics” and mine are very similar.
    Have you ever thought of writing a guest post for a similar website?
    It will definitely help gain exposure to your blog (my site recieves
    a lot of traffic). If you happen to be interested,
    contact me at: karasimmons@gmail.com. Thank you so much

  14. Vada says:

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  15. Mattie says:

    Fantastic post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on
    this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Kudos!

  16. Browsing stumbleupon.com I noticed your web site bookmarked as: All in
    a Daydream’s Work: The Detective | benefitcosmetics. I am assuming you book-marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a large amount of traffic? I’ve been
    looking at doing some social bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn’t certain if it would yield any positive results. Many thanks.

    a few days ago? Any sure?

  18. Hey administrator, I just wanted to give you a brief heads
