Get The Look: Mila Kunis Steel Eye Shadow

InStyle Celebrity Beauty Tip:

Mila Kunis’s character in Oz: The Great and Powerful may be wicked, but we’d never know judging from the delicate nude lip and silver shadow she wore to the film’s London premiere. Drawing inspiration from her dress, the star’s makeup artist Tracey Levy picked up a metallic eye shadow that almost tipped to purple to give her look a feminine edge. “I chose a grayish lavender that works beautifully with her green eyes,” said Levy, who used Laura Mercier products. “It has a bit of silver, but the warmth from the lavender makes the color a little different.” Often times, chromatic shadows like Kunis’s look gorgeous in the pan, but fall flat when swept across your lids. The key to bringing out the dynamic shimmer is to start with a good eye shadow primer. In addition to keeping your shadow from creasing, the smooth base gives it a place to adhere and makes the color appear more pigmented. Applying the shadow in a sweeping motion increases fallout, causing the glitters to stick to your face instead of your eyes. Make sure to press the color onto your lids, then blend out any harsh edges using a dome-tipped shadow brush.

Makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani created a “young and fresh” makeup look for Williams, who stars in the upcoming movie, “OZ the Great and Powerful.” Bedrani stated, “My inspiration for the look always comes from the dress.

  • Then, she filled in Williams’ eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Fair Blonde ($20) and used Laura Mercier Eye Brow Gel ($20) to define their shape.
  • Bedrani added the final touch of glamour by applying two coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to Williams’ top and bottom lashes.

FLAWLESS FACE: Bedrani kept Williams’ face “fresh and youthful.”

  • First Bedrani applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation in Cream Ivory ($43) to even out Williams’ complexion.
  • She then used Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-1 ($30) to conceal imperfections.
  • Bedrani then dusted Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder ($35) all over her skin to set the look.
  • Next she applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Heather Pink ($24) to the star’s cheeks for a healthy glow.

LIPS: A feminine lip to “complement the hue of the dress.”

  • Bedrani “dabbed a little” Laura Mercier Lip Stain in Scarlet ($20) to finish the look.

  • She then applied Laura Mercier Oil-Free Suprême Foundation in Sunny Beige ($43) to even Kunis’ skin. She applied “a touch” of Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 ($30) around Kunis’ nose and under her eyes to conceal minor imperfections.

  • Levy then contoured Kunis’ cheekbones using Laura Mercier Bronzing Powder in Golden Bronze ($32) and dusted the powder onto her neck and chest to give her a glow from head-to-toe.
  • She used Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Peach Mosaic ($40) to highlight the star’s upper cheekbones.
  • Lastly, she applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Praline ($24) onto the upper apples of Kunis’ cheeks and blended the shade with the existing shimmer.

“SOFT GREY LAVENDER SMOKY” EYES:

  • Levy applied Laura Mercier Eye Canvas in EC-2 ($26) to ensure that Kunis’ eye makeup would last throughout the entire evening.
  • Next, she lightly dabbed Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Silver ($23) onto the middle of Kunis’ lid to add a highlighting effect.
  • Then she smudged Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Amethyst ($24) into the crease and along the top and bottom lashlines.
  • To add depth, Levy then used Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Noir ($22) to line Kunis’ eyes. She also applied Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye liner in Black Ebony ($23) along the water line.
  • Next, she filled in Kunis’ eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Deep Blonde ($20) and set them with Laura Mercier Eye Brow Gel ($20).
