“I’m a mom. I’ve got a job. I’m super-lazy,” says a fresh-faced Olivia Wilde of her laid-back beauty routine. Her demanding schedule (she has two dramas due out later this year) and nonchalance aside, the actress never looks anything short of a movie star. Before heading out for the day in Brooklyn, Wilde, her shoulder-skimming brunette lengths scraped back in a half bun, serves up a play-by-play on her beauty routine, replete with makeup hacks and whip-smart one-liners.
As chief brand activist for True Botanicals, an all-natural line out of California, nontoxic skin care is a vital part of the equation for the mother of two. She begins by misting on the brand’s Renew Hydrating Nutrient Mist, then slathers on Pure Radiance Oil, a sinks-right-in serum that doubles as her moisturizer. And forget foundation—for Wilde, a few taps of concealer under the eyes will do the trick. “I, like many people in the ’90s, really wanted to have Kate Moss’s eyebrows,” she confesses while filling in her arches with a pencil. “So I tweezed off all of mine and they never came back. But it’s okay, because we can fake it.”
Gleefully skipping mascara, thanks to her supernatural lash extensions, she then uses a liquid liner to slash subtle flicks on the outer corners of her piercing blue eyes. “I’d say the main ingredient in my makeup routine is saliva,” she says, wetting a cotton swab on her tongue before refining each wing to razor-sharp effect. “I don’t really use brushes, I just use my fingers, because I have them with me at all times,” she explains while pressing highlighter into her cheekbones, then blending soft pink blush onto the apples of her cheeks and lips, a coat of Rodin Lip Balm adding a hint of color and shine. “One last thing!” she exclaims. “I’m going to put on some deodorant, for everyone’s sake.” Once she performs a swift smell check underneath each arm, she lets out a sigh of satisfaction. Apparently perspiration becomes no one—not even Olivia Wilde.
