The first thing that came to mind when I saw these pictures of Mila Kunis at TRL this week? Smokin' hot. Seriously, this girl has amazing skin and features (OK, and a professional hair and makeup team as well). The dramatic eyes, rosy cheeks, and lips are all working for me, so I thought I would share some tips for you all about how to get a look like Mila's at home!
To see my suggestions,
- Face: Start with clean, moisturized skin, and use a primer to ensure a smooth foundation application. Lately I've been into MAC Prep & Prime Face Protect SPF 50 ($26.50). Apply a creamy concealer one shade lighter than your skin tone on the under-eye area and eyelids, such as Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme Ultra Firming Concealer ($19.50) in Light. Mila is wearing a full-coverage foundation such as Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 ($40) in Warm Beige. Use a sponge applicator with a tapered tip to get the most even application, and be sure to blend down below the chin.
- Eyes: The eyes are the centerpiece of this look. Start off with a wash of light beige, shimmery shadow over the entire lid and into the corner of the eye. Try Urban Decay Eyeshadow ($16) in Midnight Cowgirl. Add depth and definition by using a darker, highlighting shade on the outer third of your lid, like this Smashbox Eye Shadow ($16) in Rapture. Using a black liquid liner such as L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic Precision Liquid Eyeliner ($9) in Carbon Black, line eyes fully, including the inner rims. To create a lightly smoky effect, take a black eyeliner pencil like Max Factor MaxEye Eyeliner ($6) in Night Club, and smudge it over the liquid liner on outer corners of your upper and lower eye. Blend lightly with a finger or Q-Tip. To get flirty, long lashes like Mila, try a pair of falsies like this feathery pair from Laura Mercier.
- Cheeks: A deep, rosy shade of blush like Make Up For Ever Powder Blush ($18) in Antique Pink suits Mila's complexion perfectly. To create the illusion of high cheekbones, try starting just past, rather than right on, the apples of your cheeks and sweeping upwards to the temples.
- Lips: Mila's lips look close to her natural color, but just a bit deeper. A creamy lipstick in a rosy pink shade, like this Revlon SuperLustrous ($7) in Pink Velvet, should do just the trick.
