Get the Look: Step-by-Step Instructions for Recreating Olivia Wilde’s Burgundy Smoky EyeMar 12, 2013 @ 4:13 pm
Not only did Olivia Wilde‘s Gucci number from the Los Angeles premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone win our Look of the Day, but her smoldering purple shadow is giving us serious makeup inspiration, which is why we chatted with her makeup artist Melanie Inglessis to get all the details. “We decided to do something a little edgy to make the look more rock and roll,” she told InStyle.com. “I saw a lot of metallic burgundy makeup on the runway, so we added that color to keep her makeup current.” Inglessis smoothed on a primer to start, then traced Wilde’s top and bottom lash lines with Revlon‘s ColorStay Eyeliner in Black ($7; ulta.com). She followed with the Smoky Shadow Stick in Torch ($9; ulta.com), using the darker hue to fill in the star’s lids. Picking up the deep burgundy from Revlon’s Eye Shadow Quad in Precocious ($8; ulta.com), she blended the color on top of the cream shadow, and into Wilde’s crease. “Keep your makeup below your lid,” Inglessis added. “Don’t take the smoky eye all the way to your brow bone or too far out—just define the natural shape of your eye.”
