MILA KUNIS

It looks like Mila Kunis is just as obsessed as the Internet is with Pat McGrath’s amazing highlighter. The Bad Moms actress used the cream part of McGrath’s Skin Fetish on her cheekbones along with EX1 Blush in Natural Flush. Makeup artist Tracey Levy used the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad in Coco Mirage and Seductive Rose. And a pop more of the Skin Fetish cream.
