Olivia Wilde Has Thoughts on How Not to Look Like a Tranny

Being the spokeswoman for a make-up company sure has its perks. Just ask Revlon’s newest brand ambassador Olivia Wilde, who, besides getting to jet around the world and be a movie star, also gets insider-y makeup tips from the pros! Wilde recently told Elle that “Even after years of getting my makeup done by professionals, I still have trouble knowing how to contour and shade.” Wilde’s beauty IQ has gone up a notch thanks to Revlon Global Creative Director and make-up maven Gucci Westman, who helped the Cowboy & Aliens star master multiple tricks of the trade, like how to apply eyeliner in a speeding cab. After the jump, a few of Ms. Wilde’s beauty rules.

● If you’re a snacker, don’t bother with lipstick no matter how great it is. Instead stick to playing up your eyes. 

● Wilde has learned that if you have a strong jaw, like herself, steer clear of doing a strong lip and eye. The combination will make you look like a “tranny’ real fast!”

● Whatever beauty crime you committed in youth, you’ll end up paying for it later. For Wilde, it was her compulsive love of plucking her eyebrows that led to her newfound adoration for the eyebrow pencil. 

● Whether you get your makeup fix at a mall, a drugstore, or both, Wilde explains the power of makeup as such: “By enhancing your favorite assets, you can harness your inner confidence and put forth the best version of yourself.” 

Look for Wilde’s Revlon ads in the new year.
