I don’t think I’ve ever seen Olivia Wilde not look gorgeous. She has those beautiful eyes and a perfect bone structure that makes me green with envy! Here is she at The Incredible Burt Wonderstone premiere. Makeup Artist Melanie Inglessis gave Olivia a sexy eye with complimentary mentallics.
Here’s how she got the look:
“To create dewy skin I applied a luminous foundation with a wet sponge all over the face. Next I applied a warm creamy blush to the apples of the cheeks, this helped soften the overall look andkeep her looking young and fresh.” “The focus of this look is definitely the eyes,” said Inglessis.
“To start I applied a primer over the lids so the shadow will adhere better and last longer. Then start by creating the shape of the smoky eye by tracing both top and bottom rims with a thick black line. It doesn’t have to be perfect as it will be blended. The darker around the rim of the eyes, the sexier the eyes will look. Next I applied a dark cream shadow to fill the entire lid and create a base to which the powder eyeshadow will stick. I also used this color on the bottom lash line to start creating the smoky eye. I applied a dark burgundy powder shadow to lid and under the eye on top of the cream to create a bit more depth.
The trick to a good smoky eye is blending! Blend all of the colors with a medium and small size shadow brush according to the eye shape that you want. I like to blend a smoky eye with a strong but light shimmer eyeshadow on the outside of the eye. I also used this color on the inner corner of the eyes for brightness. To finish the eyes, I curled the lashes, applied one coat of mascara to top and bottom lashes, waited for it to dry and repeated a second time. I topped the look off with a really pretty baby pink on the lips and applied it with my finger, building the color for a natural and polished look.”
