Get the Look – Mia Wasikowska and Tarte Cosmetics

Get the Look: Mia Wasikowska
Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala
Makeup Artist: celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine for tarte
Date: 05/02/11
Overall Inspiration: “After seeing Mia’s exquisite Thakoon dress detailed with intricate rosettes, I knew I wanted to create a soft, ultra-feminine, ethereal look in pretty, rosy-peach shades on her eyes, cheeks and lips.” 

Hard to believe this is the same girl from Alice In Wonderland isn’t it?
Makeup-complexion & cheeks
To begin Amy evened out Mia’s complexion with tarte’s smooth operator tinted moisturizer in agent 04
Then using tarte’s kabuki brush, she contoured her cheeks, temples and hairline with tarte’s park ave princess mineral powder bronzer
Next, she swirled tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in blissful, a warm rosy peach, on the apples of her cheeks and topped it off with tarte’s provocateur Amazonian clay shimmering powder for instant radiance and a subtle sheen
She set the look with tarte’s smooth operator Amazonian clay finishing powder
Amy shaded Mia’s entire lid with tarte’s lock & roll 12-hour eyeshadow in rose gold, a shimmering rose-tinged gold, then highlighted Mia’s crease with tarte’s lock & roll 12-hour eyeshadow in quartz, a shimmering muted pink. She used the rollers and her fingers to blend up and out
For extra drama, she coated her lashes with tarte’s lights, camera, lashes! clinically-proven natural mascara in black
To complete Mia’s look, Amy used tarte’s LipSurgence™ natural lip luster in glisten (peach) on her pout.

    I loved it when Mia cut her hair into that adorable pixie! Not to say that her long, wavy hair wasn’t beautiful, but the pixie made her stand out and that lovely face….!!

  2. The soft, sweet effect of her hair and make-up perfectly complements her dark, romantic dress.
