I can't wait for Pitch Perfect 2 to open! Okay, now that's out of the way, let's have a look at Anna Kendrick's red-carpet makeup at the NYC premiere of Into the Woods last night. Anna plays Cinderella in the film. So, with mostly Laura Mercier makeup, pro artist Sara Glick went for a "modern-day Cinderella" look, all fresh skin and lush lashes, with a soft, subtle lip. (We have the details on Emily Blunt's makeup too; click here!)

Makeup pro Sara Glick describes Anna Kendrick's Into the Woods red-carpet look as "clean and fresh with a touch of youthful sophistication."
face: natural with rosy pink cheeks
To create a glowing complexion, Glick first applied RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Retexturizing Hydrator ($195) to Kendrick’s skin.
Next, she applied Laura Mercier Foundation Primer-Oil Free ($33) all over her face.
Because Kendrick has a flawless complexion, Glick then applied Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer in #0.5 ($28) with her fingers, only as needed.
Using a sponge, she sparingly applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen in Cameo ($43).
Kendrick’s cheeks were a main focus of the look. Glick applied Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Soft Iris ($26) along the hollows of the cheeks, sweeping upwards toward the hairline. “This is a simple and easy way to bring out the natural curves of the face without looking too bronzed, and can simply be incorporated into a daily makeup routine. Her skin is porcelain and fair, therefore, just small amount beautifully complemented her skin tone.”
eyes: smoky in pearlescent taupe and plum
Glick created a glamourous smoky eye without overpowering the overall look. She used three shades of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($28 each). First, she applied Seashell on the inner corners, top and bottom. Next, she used Rosegold on the lids and bottom lash line, and finally Plum for the crease and outer lash line.
To add fullness to Kendrick’s lashes, she used an angled brush to draw a fine line across the top lash line with Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Noir ($24). She also filled in the top waterline. (BEST trick for making lashes look thick at the roots.)
Next, Glick applied three to four coats of BareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara in Black ($18) to the top lashes, and one coat to the bottom.
She kept Kendrick’s brows soft, just filling in lightly with the Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil in Ash Blonde ($22).
lips: pink and peachy
Glick kept Kendrick’s lips simple. She chose Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Silk ($25). “When I think of a princess, this is the shade that comes to mind."
So, whaddya think? Does Anna Kendrick's makeup say modern-day princess to you? How about that discreet smoky-eye makeup?
