BENEFIT COSMETICS / DREAM JOB 03
last week i featured two of my dream jobs with benefit cosmetics (jazz singer & detective) and today is our third look…the florist! i’ve always admired this profession. i love the way they pair various flowers together to create a completely different vibe each time. in a lot of ways florists are similar to a graphic designer or an interior designer…you have to understand balance, color theory, textures, and scale. it’s fascinating to watch artists work in different mediums with the same guidelines.
and flowers are such mood changers. when i have fresh flowers next to my bed, i wake up in a better mood. i have been making a lot of efforts this year to keep fresh flowers and plants in the house. they make the space inviting and somehow put your mind at ease a bit. don’t you think? we have an LA flower mart that has a huge selection at really awesome prices. it’s a fun weekend activity to just stroll around there.
those peonies are ridiculous, right? my floral contributor, kristen from moon canyon design co, actually flew those in from holland for the shoot! we wanted the makeup for this look to feel light, bright and cheerful. i’m a big fan of benefit’s brightening powder to make the skin have that glowy look.
shop the benefit look: hello flawless oxygen wow brightening makeup, boi-ing concealer, stay don’t stray primer, powder shadow brush, longwear powder shadow, they’re real! mascara, posietint lip & cheek stain, dandelion brightening face powder, ultra plush lip gloss (shade: lollibop)
there’s one more look on thursday (and the video!) also keep your eyes open for a big giveaway with all the products used in the 4 looks. your comments about the project have really made me smile. thanks for being so awesome. -bri
