Olivia Wilde is one funny, talented lady. If you haven't read her thoughts about aging, you really should check them out. She's into style and beauty, but she doesn't obsess about it. As a result, she always looks pulled together, carefree and sexy. Seriously, it would be almost unfair were she not also so awesome-seeming.
Her recent appearance at the London premiere of her movie 'Rush' was no exception. While her jacket sans actual shirt look might be a bit too racy for most of us, her hair and makeup are the epitome of Fall 2013 style. Read on for tips to match her sultry, autumnal look.
Let's start with the hair. While curls are still in vogue, a loose more natural look is the way to go. Ombre is still happening, but the transition in color is now much more subtle than it has been. To ombre-ize yourself at home, try L'Oreal Preferences Wild Ombre Dip Dye (Amazon, $11.99) in Number 2 - Dark Blonde. It's a softer take on the traditional ombre trend.
The hallmark of this look is, of course, her matte lips. Matte lipstick in red is a distinctive look. But it can also be drying. Prep your lips with this moisturizing lip exfoliator by E.L.F. (E.L.F., $3.00), and then stop traffic with MAC's best red, Ruby Woo. (Amazon, $22.50)
When you're rocking such a bold red lip, it can be easy to over do it everywhere else. Keep the eyes simple with a neutral (a grayish green metallic can count as a neutral if you play it right). A sweep of Maybelline's creamy Color Tattoo by Eyestudio in Audacious Asphalt (Amazon, $5.59) on lids, brow bones, and lower lash lines, and you're set.
Finally, make your face soft and glowy with this Illuminating Finishing Powder by Stila. (Amazon, $8.99) Brushing it gently down your nose and to highlight cheekbones will really focus your look without adding too much glitter.
