article imageReview: OZ, the movie, is great and powerful but what's with that makeup?

Oz The Great and Powerful has taken over box offices around the globe by storm. But after the transformations am I the only one thinking what's with Mila Kunis's makeup?
The beautiful actress has been a staple in Hollywood since her first appearance in the movie Gia where she played a younger Angelina Jolie who played the lead Gia. She later became internationally known after she was cast as a member of That 70's Show which aired on Fox for eight seasons. For years Kunis has been the voice of Meg Griffin the daughter of Peter Griffin in the animated sitcom Family Guy created by Seth MacFarlane. She has shared the big screen with names like Denzel Washington in The Book of Eli and Natalie Portman in Black Swan. She also co starred multiple times with Mark Walberg in movies like Ted, and Max Payne.
This is also not the first time Mila Kunis filmed with OZ co star James Franco, they acted together as a couple in the movie Blind Date. In the movie Oz the great and powerful James Franco plays Oz, a magician who found his way into the land of Oz via a hot air balloon and a powerful twister. Mila Kunis plays one of three witches in the movie. As not to give any spoilers away I will get to the point of this review.
What was up with Mila Kunis's makeup? After her character "changes" so does her total appearance and I can honestly say I feel that make up was the not right choice. It almost appeared that a cast off of the reality show FaceOff had done her makeup. In this one moment my favorite character had me cringing. Well, honestly it was that makeup. Nothing against the amazing Mila Kunis of course. Her passion came through, even through the layers of bad makeup that I felt hid her potential to make that character brilliant. It was the amateur make up techniques and poorly placed contacts that left me gritting my teeth.
The producers did a fascinating job in recreating the land of OZ itself. The CGI was excellent. The China Girl character was brought to life in what seemed an effortless way. If only they had paid more attention to the make up with the same enthusiasm.
I still recommend this movie to adults and children alike. It is Disney at it's best. It tells a story of redemption and honesty and the valuable lesson that inevitably anything is possible.
