mia wasikowska's gorgeous look at the met ball

I have to admit that I totally had to Google this actress' name because I did not have one clue as to who she was.

That's what endless repeats of Dora and SpongeBob will do to you.

Anywho, she looks amazing and I'm in love with her makeup...all natural and sweet.


Her makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist Amy Nadine for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala.

Yours truly has the 411 on what was used...all tarte products btw.

Read on...

Nadine's 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.

Complexion and 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.
