Olivia Wilde wore Gucci to the LA premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, but no Gucci looks is complete without a smoldering eye. We have a list of tips along with the exact products that Revlon makeup artist Melanie Inglessis used on Wilde. “The focus of this look is definitely the eyes,” Inglessis said. “I went with Olivia’s classic look, a sexy smoky eye, but kept it chic and fresh by incorporating metallics into the look.” Follow Inglessis’ smokey eye tips: LINE IT: Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Black, $6.79
“To start I applied a primer over the lids so the shadow will adhere better and last longer. Then start by creating the shape of the smoky eye by tracing both top and bottom rims with a thick black line. It doesn’t have to be perfect as it will be blended. The darker around the rim of the eyes, the sexier the eyes will look.” SHADOW IT: Revlon ColorStay Smoky Shadow Stick in Torch, $8.99
“Next I applied a dark cream shadow to fill the entire lid and create a base to which the powder eyeshadow will stick. I also used this color on the bottom lash line to start creating the smoky eye. I applied a dark burgundy powder shadow to lid and under the eye on top of the cream to create a bit more depth. The trick to a good smoky eye is blending! Blend all of the colors with a medium and small size shadow brush according to the eye shape that you want.” SHIMMER IT: Revlon Luxurious Color Diamond Lust Eyeshadow in Starry Pink, $4.99
“I like to blend a smoky eye with a strong but light shimmer eyeshadow on the outside of the eye. I also used this color on the inner corner of the eyes for brightness.” LASH IT: 3D Photoready Volume Mascara, $6.65
“To finish the eyes, I curled the lashes, applied one coat of mascara to top and bottom lashes, waited for it to dry and repeated a second time.” Also check out yesterday’s colorful queen.
