Mila Kunis or Rosario Dawson: Which star got it right?

Mila Kunis Rosario Dawson

The Book of Eli is set to launch in Canada this weekend, and at the premiere party in Hollywood on Monday night were Mila Kunis (who has a lead role) and Rosario Dawson.

I was simultaneously impressed and disappointed when I saw these pics. Impressed, because I can’t remember the last time I saw Ms. Mila on the red carpet—and looking so fab, I might add. How stellar is this eye makeup? There’s some serious artistry there in terms of the lining-the-waterline trick (plus some false lashes, I suspect), both of which makes eyes pop without the heaviness of a dark, smokey shadow.

Rosario, on the other hand, underwhelms here. Gorgeous as she is, this is weekend hair and makeup—it’s pretty, but wouldn’t it be nice to see a brighter lipstick, more emphasis on the eyes or a more voluminous hair style? I’m not snarking—more often than not, I don’t practice what I preach—but you can clearly see the contrast between Mila’s look (polished) and Rosario’s (blah).

The bottom line: when cameras are around, always, ALWAYS make an effort.

Do you agree?

Love Mila, always so gorgeous! You are right, Rosario is a beautiful woman too but this is the wrong kind of effortless.
