Easter Sunday Makeup!

How many of you are getting together with family or friends on Sunday? Heading to church to celebrate Easter? Have you put any thought into what makeup you’ll wear? Well I have! Easter Sunday is a bright and beautiful day, usually when women wear a pretty, colorful dress, and their daughters wear white gloves and bonnets. Okay, I’ll admit…this was my childhood, but what’s cuter than a little girl in white gloves and a bonnet??

Anyway, Easter is a time to celebrate. The day is often associated with bright and beautiful colors. Pastel pinks, purples, yellows and greens. Here are a few beauty products that would make your Easter complete!

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.

Get The Look: Mila Kunis In Laura Mercier at the London Premiere of “OZ The Great and Powerful”

Mila Kunis “OZ the Great and Powerful” London Premiere
February 28, 2013
Look by Tracey Levy for Laura Mercier

Makeup artist Tracey Levy created a “modern and sexy” makeup look for Kunis, who stars in the upcoming movie, “OZ the Great and Powerful.” Levy noted that for this premiere, Kunis turned to a soft, sexy Alexander McQueen evening gown “with a bit of mystery.” Levy noted that she and Kunis were both pleased with the final look, which she described as “so sexy, while yet so feminine.”

FLAWLESS FACE:

  • As soon as Kunis stepped out of the shower, Levy prepped her skin with RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême ($350) to restore the skin’s natural moisture, followed by Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32) to ensure her makeup looked fresh through the entire evening.
  • 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.
  • Next, she dusted Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder in Universal ($35) onto the skin to set the look. Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder #2 ($22) set the under-eye area.
  • 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).
  • Levy finished the eyes by applying two generous coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara ($24) to Kunis’ top and bottom lashes.

NUDE LIPS:

  • Levy lightly lined Kunis’ lips using Laura Mercier Lip Pencil in Naked ($22).
  • To complete the look, she lightly applied Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Nude Lips ($22) using her finger.
