Get Mila Kunis’ smoldering makeup look

Milakunis Mila Kunis looked sleek and sexy at the premier of her new movie “Friends with Benefits” on Monday evening. The actress, clad in second skin Lanvin and sporting stick-straight hair, looked every bit the screen siren due in no small part to her bronze skin and smoldering eye makeup.

Makeup artist Tracey Levy was inspired to give Kunis a look based on the idea of Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida en route to a summer beach holiday. This meant heavy eyes, tan skin, nude lips and perfectly sun-kissed cheeks.

Levy used mostly Lancome products to get the look, starting with foundation and bringing up the bronze color with Lancome Star Bronzer in Solaire. She used shades of grey and bronze for eye shadow, sweeping shimmery silver hues from the Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Gris Fatale and warm sun-drenched shades from the Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Bronze Amour over Kunis’ eyelids.

To get that really intense eye, Levy used Lancome’s new Doll Lash mascara for extra definition, depth and drama to the lashes and overall look.

Lips were kept neutral and glossy so as not to compete with the eyes or that va-va-voom red dress.
