Celebrity Makeup: Olivia Wilde


I would like to share with you this Intense Smoky Look Olivia Wilde sported at the premiere of "Cowboys & Aliens"




Here's how Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Ingelssis created it:

1. She began using CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil to create the shape of the smoky eye, but kept it true to Olivia's shape as opposed to taking it out too much.
2. She then rimmed her entire eyes, including the inside of the waterline with a thick line, also using the soft, easy-to-use kohl pencil.
3. She then used Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow  in Mirifique, a new long-wearing, shimmering cream eyeshadow from CHANEL, all over Olivia's lids to create a black base.
4. She took the cream shadow up to the crease of Olivia's eyes and underneath , blending it with the kohl pencil so there were no harsh lines.
5. With a black shadow, she redefined the outer and inner areas of the eyes that needed to be darker, creating a sexy and smudgy look. 
6. Finally, according to Melanie, " the trick to a beautiful smoky eye is blending, so I took a clean blending brush - with no color on it - and with one motion, I blended the upper and lower colors together."
7. To complete the look, Melanie culed Olivia's lashes and added two coats of Inimitable Intense Mascara.
