The Met's Costume Institute Gala: Kirsten Dunst

The Met's Costume Institute Gala: Kirsten Dunst

It's all about being cool for Kirsten Dunst. I'm not just talking attitude, I'm talking her makeup palette choices. If you look closely, the actress has opted for some purplish mascara to top off this cool-toned look, full of shimmering lilacs on the eyes and a berry hue on the cheeks and lips.

In lieu of a crazy headpiece or dramatic hairstyle, Kirsten chooses a no-fuss updo with face-framing pieces. What do you think of this pop-of-purple look? Does it get your stamp of approval?

Amazing eye makeup but something's overdone on the sides of her cheeks.. that spoils the look..

Well, since I've worn blue mascara nearly everyday for the past eight years or so, I am a fan of her eye makeup. I love colored mascara. I think she looks really pretty.

I voted Love it, but I'm on the fence. I think the eyes would be great if the cheeks and lips were a light pink hue instead of the warm berry color.

I like the idea that she's taking a risk but something's off. Maybe if her eyebrows were darker?

Love it. Her eye makeup is a welcome departure from all the heavy eye shadow, liner, mascara aka smokey eye look.

I know it says your eyebrows should be the same colour as your hair, but this is taking things to the extreme

I think she's such a pretty girl, but she wears her hair the same to every event. I like the pop of purple shadow.
