Famous For That 70's Show, Forgetting Sarah Marshall
“I don’t wear makeup. I don’t wash my hair every day. It’s not something that I associate with myself.” Although she isn’t a fan of primping and getting dressed up every day to go out on the town, Mila Kunis certainly knows a thing or two about beauty as one of the most gorgeous actresses in Hollywood today. First getting her start in the 1990s after moving from the Ukrainian USSR to the United States, Kunis appeared in a handful of television commercials before she snagged her breakthrough role as Jackie Burkhart on That ‘70s Show in 1998. Spending nearly a decade on the series, Kunis has voiced Meg Griffin on Family Gun since 1999 and has turned heads for her performances in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Black Swan, Friends with Benefits, and Bad Moms. Also tying the knot with Hollywood hunk Ashton Kutcher, we can’t help but wonder how Kunis goes from a natural no-makeup look to jaw-dropping glitz and glam on the red carpet!

Kunis’ signature sultry yet sweet and ultra-feminine look starts with creating a flawless canvas using Lancöme’s Teint Miracle Lit-from-Within full-coverage foundation ($37). To add extra tint and vibrancy to her complexion, she uses Lancöme’s Star Bronzer in Solaire ($35) and accentuates the look by brushing the apples of her cheeks with Lancöme’s Blush Subtil in Sheer Amourose ($32).

The 34-year-old Forgetting Sarah Marshall star is known for her beautiful smoky cat eye look where her eyeshadow extends upward to accentuate her eyeliner and make her eyes pop. For those new to this technique, using professional guides like Shadow Shields or a piece of Scotch Magic Tape is perfect for keeping your eyeshadow in the right place and from dusting the tops of your cheeks.
As for Kunis’ eyeshadow, red carpet events and movie premieres call for extra glamour, which is why Kunis’ makeup team usually opts for twice the shadow to create a bolder eye. When Lancöme makeup artist Tracey Levy is working on Kunis behind the scenes, she layers shades from the Lancöme Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Coral Crush ($50) and the Color Design Eye Shadow in Impress ($50). Sometimes makeup artist Rachel Goodwin is running the show and applies Chanel’s Winter Nights eye shadow quad ($61) to Kunis’ eyes. To achieve this sultry look, Goodwin extends the champagne shade to underneath the brow and blends tan into the crease. She then smudges the dark green hue along the lash line. For a finishing touch of shimmer, she uses Chanel’s Fluid Eye Shadow in Torrent.
Kunis’ look is complete once her lash lines are outlined with Lancöme’s Le Crayon Khôl EyeLiner in Black ($25) and then finished with two coats of Lancöme’s Hypnöse Waterproof Custom Volume Mascara in Black ($25) or Lancöme’s Hypnöse Doll Lashes Mascara ($25). Even when Kunis isn’t walking the red carpet, she’s known for blacking out her waterline, which enhances her smoky eye whether she’s at a movie premiere or hanging around town with Kutcher and their two children, daughter Wyatt Isabelle and son Dimitry Portwood.

Because her eyes are usually dark and sultry, Kunis tends to play it cool with her lips and usually picks shades that are either in the nude or pink family like pink-nudes and berry hues that often have a slight shimmer instead of the traditional, dark matte finish most celebs prefer. To achieve this low-key shimmer, Kunis keeps it simple and starts with Lancöme’s Color Fever Gloss in Blazing Pink ($26) followed by Lancöme’s La Laque Fever Lipshine in Lucent Nude ($27). On the go, the Bad Moms actress likes to use Lancöme’s Juice Tubes Lip Gloss in Tickled Pink ($18) or Lancöme’s L’Absolu Nu in Coral Ribbon ($31).

After over two decades in the business, Kunis is accustomed to the glitz and glam of Hollywood but she isn’t exactly a fan of getting “all dolled up” when she’s just hanging out at home. That’s exactly why she was happy to ditch the makeup and appear au natural on the cover of Glamour magazine in 2016! “I commend women who wake up 30, 40 minutes early to put on eyeliner. I think it’s beautiful,” she said. “I’m just not that person. So, to go to a shoot and have my makeup artist put on face cream and send me off to do a photo, I was like, ‘Well, this makes life easy.’ And you’re still protected. Nobody’s there to make you look bad.”
Admitting that Photoshop is one of her biggest pet peeves in the industry, Kunis is quick to defend natural beauty but says that not everyone feels the same way, like those few publications who enhance her appearance and simply use her name to attract more readers. “I absolutely hate it,” she says. “Now, do I sometimes want them to depuff my eyes? Help me out with a little bit of lighting. But, do I want them to stretch my legs, thin out my waist, curve my hips, elongate my neck, blah, blah, blah? No.” That’s just another reason why so many fans adore Mila Kunis, a young actress who climbed her way up the Hollywood ladder from commercial actress to an award-winning star, doting wife, and loving mother!
