An Olivia Wilde-Inspired Makeup Look

Try This Olivia Wilde-Style Eye Makeup Look

Here's an excerpt of an Olivia Wilde-inspired beauty look from the ever-talented CCee on her blog, cee me:

The hardest thing about this look isn't what you think. The hardest part is picking the right colors for you. If I'd used the exact same color as Olivia Wilde, I'd have looked very ill because it's too yellow for me. All the eye shadows I used are from the Sephora Color Play Palette which has almost every color you could need if you go away and want to bring one palette.

Check out the gallery for CCee's step-by-step tutorial:

I started with clean eyes.

I then used a little Soft Ochre Paint Pot as a base.

Next, I took a soft shimmery brown from the Sephora Palette and placed this with a big brush on my eyelid and a little over the crease.

I also took this color under my eyelid and I didn't blend out the edges too much because Olivia has strong edges on her look.

I lined my eye with a very creamy Stila Kohl in Onyx. I chose a creamy liner because you need to blend this with a pencil brush to look more natural. You can even add a little of the original eye shadow on top of it if the blending doesn't go the way you like it. The lining doesn't have to be perfect because you'll blend it with the pencil brush, so don't be all precise with it.<br />

Something many women find very hard to do is tightlining. This isn't something that feels good. You see gurus on YouTube placing the pencil on the waterline, closing their eye, and then going over the waterline. This is a way that scares me half to death. You can easily poke yourself in the eye. The way I do it is by first doing the top, because that will probably make your eyes water. I hold my brow and then look down. (This is because you don't want to tug the skin too much, and this is an easy way to do it without hurting yourself.)

If you have watering eyes, sniff a few times and it will disappear. Now line your lower waterline. I'm using a waterproof UD 24/7 liner in Zero. If you cannot bear to do this, use a creamy pencil and only line the lower waterline. Then, close your eyes very tightly for five seconds, and it will transfer a little to the top waterline. Remember to reapply to the lower waterline to keep the density of color.

I darkened the outer corner and crease a little with this slightly darker and warmer color.

Don't blend too much at this point because the look isn't a blended-out smoky eye. Add a matte highlighter under your brow on your brow bone, and a shimmery one on the inner corner. (Use a dome shaped brush for this).

Now you only need a black mascara (Curl your lashes if you need it. Olivia doesn't have her lashes curled. I think.) And you're done.
