Olivia Wilde Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial

Get Olivia Wilde's Exact Smoky Eye Look For Under $50

Olivia Wilde has made the sultry smoky eye her go-to makeup look, and at last night's The Incredible Burt Wonderstone premiere she updated the classic style with a metallic spin.

First makeup artist Melanie Inglessis used a wet sponge to apply foundation and blush for a dewy complexion. Next she applied Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer ($10) as a base. Inglessis started to add color by drawing a thick black line around the top and bottom lash line using Colorstay Eyeliner ($7). "It doesn't have to be perfect, as it will be blended," Inglessis explains. "The darker around the rim of the eyes, the sexier the eyes will look."

Once Olivia's eyes were lined, Inglessis used the Torch Smoky Shadow Stick ($9) on the lids and underneath the eye. She then topped the cream with a burgundy shade from the Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad in Precocious ($8). "The trick to a good smoky eye is blending," Inglessis says. "Blend all of the colors with a medium or small brush. I like to blend a smoky eye with a strong but light shimmer eye shadow on the outside and inner corner of the eyes for brightness." She used the Diamond Lust Eye Shadow in Starry Pink ($5). She finished the look with a touch of mascara and a dab of baby-pink lip color. This classic look works for anyone with or without a red carpet affair.
