“The Law. Without the Order,” is the tagline of the Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, now in its second season.
Melissa Fumero stars as Detective Amy Santiago, a young cop eager to impress her superiors. Her look was created by make-up department head Helen Marray-Finlay.
“When Melissa and I first started discussing her character, Amy, we felt we wanted to develop a look that was both pretty but also very real,” explains Marray-Finlay. “Amy is the type of person who has considered carefully every aspect of her look, as she wants to project herself as this strong, ambitious and very capable detective to her colleagues.” Smooth skin and slightly smoky eyes seem to do the trick. Read on for Marray-Finlay’s tips.
