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.

Get The Look: Kate Beckinsdale in Rimmel London at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party

ENGLISH BEAUTY KATE BECKINSALE GIVES THE VANITY FAIR OSCAR PARTY RED CARPET A BRITISH EDGE WITH RIMMEL LONDON

All eyes were on Kate Beckinsale last night as she illuminated the Vanity Fair Oscar Party red carpet in a gorgeous strapless Monique Lhuillier gown complemented by a fresh and glowing makeup look. Kate’s makeup artist Molly Stern worked with Rimmel London to give the actress’ beautiful outfit a Rimmel London edge.

Face:

Molly began by prepping Kate’s skin with By Terry’s Sève de Rose ultra-glow serum and then sparingly applied Chantecaille Future Skin foundation. She then based her cheeks using Rimmel Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch in Peach Glow. A touch of rose was given to Kate’s cheeks with Laura Mercier Cream Blush in Rosebud and to finish off her radiance Molly dusted the apples with Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in Santa Rose.

Eyes:

For Kate’s mesmerizing stare, Molly made her eyes pop with a sexy golden khaki hue. She started the look by applying Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige and continued to deepen her shadow with NARS Double Shadow in Paramaribo. She then defined Kate’s stare using Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black to line her eyes super close to the upper lash line as well as just below the lower lash line. For the extra pop Molly lined the inside of Kate’s wet line with Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude. To finalize her sexy bold eye look, she then applied two coats of Rimmel ScandalEyes Show Off Mascara in Black.

Lips:

To finish off the look, Molly applied Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Pink Blush and topped it off with Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss in Always Lovely.

Introducing Three Amazing Votre Vu Products!

Le Joli Crayon, Smudge & Set Soft Eye Liner:

Brigitte Bardot educated the world about the allure of eyeliner … and now Le Joli Crayon is here to teach you. Draw on the drama with this mistake-proof gel pencil that feels like a liquid liner, but allows you time to feather and smudge before it sets. Le Joli Crayon’s smart sponge blending tip wouldn’t dare tug or tear at your delicate eyelid. Rather, this budge-proof, smudge-proof and melt-proof liner is all about prevention and retention. Could this be the real French paradox? A pretty eyeliner that is so soft on your skin, yet strong enough to provide the intensity of a liquid liner in one simple stroke?

Rich in mineral pigments, anti-aging fruit extracts, and vitamin E, this super-conditioning, proprietary formula nourishes and hydrates the fragile eye area while treating it with healing free-radical fighters. Botanically harvested candelilla wax provides both an effortless glide and water-resistant layer that seals in the peeper pigment’s mineral-color blend. As easy to remove as it is to apply, this long-lasting, ophthalmologist-tested formula is the ultimate on-the-go liner.

I absolutely LOVE this eye liner. It glides on like a dream, seriously. It is beautiful, and it lasts forever. If I had a list of favorite eye-liners, this one would be on top. This really is an amazing product!!

Only $23!

Vu-On Rouge, Sheer Moisture Color Accent for Lips & Face!

Your skin takes center stage with a kick of color from Vu-On Rouge sheer moisture tint. Just a simple swish of this multi-tasking pop-up stick bestows a fetching and flirty flush to cheeks, lips, lids and facial contours.

Blended with hydrating shea and exotic antioxidant-rich mango seed butters, Vu’s ravishing rouge spreads smoothly over skin, creating a dewy luster and irresistible airbrushed finish. Without creasing or caking, this long-wearing plant-based pigment evokes renewed vitality to your visage and wouldn’t dare settle into fine lines. Skin-conditioning jojoba and castor seed oils step in for a finished formula that naturally flatters, stabilizes and protects.

Available in three shades to complement every complexion, Vu-On Rouge can be worn alone or over Love Me Deux tinted moisturizer. To set, dab on protective Belle Poudre for a look that wears long after the cabaret’s last dance.

I love that this is a two-in-one product! It looks great both on my lips and my cheeks! It goes on smoothly, and lasts forever! Beautiful color! PS: The color I tried is Bouquet Rose, GORGEOUS!
