THE EXPERT L.A.-based Chanel makeup artist Monika Blunder is an expert at creating glamorous red-carpet looks for clients like Rebecca Romijn, Katherine Heigl, Molly Sims and Jessica Alba.

EXPERT TIP Get the most out of your eye shadow! “Intensify the color by using Nars cream eye shadow as a base and follow it with Nars dry shadow,” advises Blunder. “Applying layers also helps maintain a longer-lasting look. I applied it on Amy Ryan for the Oscars and it held up all night!”

Jocelyn and I went to see the hilarious new Judd Apatow film “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and besides laughing until we cried we noticed how great their makeup looked. I thought Mila Kunis looked drop dead gorgeous they played up her eyes with heavier mascara and liner and the perfect golden eyeshadow color.

If you want to copy her golden goddess color, a great shade for spring and summer check out some of these:

shu uemura Rebirth Collection Pressed Eye Shadow

Upon my arrival to my hotel on my fab NYC Beauty Editor trip I was treated with a gift bag from Shu Uemura filled with great products. One of my favorite is the Rebirth Collection eye shadows from shu uemura, the eye shadow goes on silky smooth and the colors are beautiful. When I first saw the shadows I wondered how well they would blend and look on my eyes. Even though the shadows are vivid you can have a hint of color with one swipe or layer for a more dramatic look. The shades look amazing on and the color stays true throughout the day.

Order yours soon these are a limited collection item!
