The Office's Mindy Kaling At The 'Despicable Me' Premiere

The Office star, Mindy Kaling, is by far one of my favorite actresses on television right now. I might be a tad biased because I do love seeing anyone Indian on the big or little screen, but she is seriously so talented, SO funny, and so much fun to watch. Kelly Kapoor-I love ya! Kaling showed up to support costar, Steve Carell at the premiere of his new movie, Despicable Me (which I'm SOO excited to see). Kaling looked fresh and summery in her blue romper and side-swept ponytail.

Makeup artist, Carola Gonzales used NARS Cosmetics to create her fresh-faced turn on the yellow carpet. Gonzales says, "they have an amazing new collection with great colors for women with the same skin tone as Mindy. The look I created is perfect for daytime make-up. Not too heavy but enough to make her face pop. It's a great fresh summer look".

The new collection looks great and I'm excited there are plenty of shades to help accentuate and compliment brown skin tones. Very necessary and lacking in the beauty market right now!

Here's what Gonzales:

SKIN: Gonzales prepped her skin with NARS Pro Prime. She says it's great for matifying the skin and keeping your makeup in place all day. She then applied NARS Sheer Matte Foundation in Macao, which was a perfect match to Kaling's skin tone. NARS just came out with an amazing variety of foundation shades, so finding her best match was easy. On Kaling's cheek, Gonzales dusted NARS Taos Blush, which made her cheeks pop.

EYES: On her eyes, Gonzales used the Bajasthan Eye Shadow Duo, a new compact from their latest collection. Gonzales applied the lighter shade all over the eyelid and then accentuated the crease with the darker shade. She then applied individual Ardell lashes in "medium." to the top of the lash line and applied mascara after adhering lashes to make the eyes stand out more.

LIPS: To accentuate Kaling's pout, Gonzales used NARS Lip Gloss in Boogie Nights.

Looking gorgeous Mindy!

Love NARS Cosmetics, like I do!? Check out my backstage interviews and coverage during Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week of NARS at 3.1 Philip Lim, Victor dE Souza and my exclusive meeting with NARS founder, Francois Nars. He' such a super star and totally looks the part! I got tons of behind the scenes pictures and saw all their latest products.
