Olivia Wilde: ‘Girls don’t get dressed up for guys; we get dressed up for girls’

Olivia Wilde: ‘Girls don’t get dressed up for guys; we get dressed up for girls’

2016 CFDA Fashion Awards

Olivia Wilde recently shared some of her beauty secrets with People magazine and I can only hope if I follow them I will look as radiant as she does. Olivia used the interview to do a little shilling for Revlon, for which she is a spokesperson, but she does offer some pretty helpful tips. She says that Jason “doesn’t love it” when she wears red lipstick to channel her inner Sophia Loren, but I’m sure he can look past that. It’s like a tiny scratch on a Bentley. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On men and makeup: “All men are terrified of lipstick. But girls don’t get dressed up for guys; we get dressed up for girls. So I wear whatever I think looks best.”

On her beauty inspiration: “I like to be bold on the red carpet, and the benefit of working with so many brilliant makeup artists is that I get to ask a lot of questions and say, ‘okay so when I go out next week to that birthday party I am going to try my own version of this with my own tools.’”

On her day-to-day look: “I don’t leave the house without a little foundation, concealer and mascara [on]. I think that for a lot of women it’s not about disguising yourself, it’s just about giving yourself a little bump in confidence.”

On the power of makeup: “The older I get, the more I get to know what works best for me. Makeup is not about changing who you are, it’s about understanding your face and highlighting your best features.”

[From People]

I love Olivia, but I have to disagree on a few things. I did an informal poll of my Facebook friends and random Tinder connections and not one man told me he was “terrified” of lipstick. Maybe Jason had some sort of traumatic experience with lipstick as a child. Also, the only woman I get dressed up for is myself. I have also been known to get dolled up to woo the opposite sex, so I think she may be barking up the wrong tree. She is right about using makeup to highlight your best features. She’s obviously a pro at that.

Sadly, it was announced on Wednesday that Olivia’s HBO series, Vinyl, was cancelled after only one season. The show, which followed the ups and (mostly) downs of a rock ’n’ roll record label in the 1970s was produced by Martin Scorcese and Mick Jagger, and I thought it was pretty good. And, of course, there’s all kinds of unresolved storylines, damn it. I hope Mick’s son, James, who played a punk singer, shows up somewhere soon. He’s a hottie. I hope Olivia’s merkin stylist can get another gig somewhere as well.

Olivia took the news in stride, using Twitter to thank fans for their support. She tweeted, “Thanks for all the kind words about Vinyl, my friends. We had a BLAST, and made something special. Party on.”

Don’t worry about Olivia though, she’s keeping busy. She recently made her directorial debut, helming the video for the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s new song Dark Necessities. Too bad she couldn’t talk Anthony Kiedis out of rocking his “Sonny Bono 2016” look. That boy needs a makeover.

Olivia Wilde on ‘Vinyl’ fashion: ‘People in the ’70s apparently didn’t have hips’

Olivia Wilde and Bobby Cannavale seen filming scenes for HBO's TV series 'Vinyl' at Hell's Kitchen in New York City
The last time we talked about Olivia Wilde she was discussing the merkin (pubic wig) which she has to wear for nude scenes on her HBO show, Vinyl, set in the 1970s. I was surprised at how many of you had strong feelings about that issue, particularly Olivia’s embarrassment at having a hirsute nether region, even temporarily. I don’t think she was saying that hair down there is hideous, just that she prefers more grooming in that area. To each their own. Some people like their hair long, some like it short.

Now Olivia is discussing the fashion on Vinyl, specifically the real vintage clothing they wear. She’s representing H&M’s conscious collection, so that’s part of the reason she’s talking about this issue as well. (more…)

Olivia Wilde: “I am not in perfect shape. I’m a mother, and I look like one”

oliviashape5

On her post-baby body:

“I am not in perfect shape. In fact, I’m softer than I’ve ever been, including that unfortunate semester in high school when I simultaneously discovered Krispy Kreme and pot. The photos of me in this magazine have been generously constructed to show my best angles and I assure you, good lighting has been warmly embraced. The truth is, I’m a mother, and I look like one.”

On the pressures of getting back in shape:

“I believe in a world where mothers are not expected to shed any physical evidence of their child-bearing experience. In that same world I believe there is space for exercise to be as much a gift to your brain as it is to your body. I don’t want to waste my time striving for some subjective definition of perfection. I’d rather rebuild my strength while dancing my ass off … literally.”

… says Olivia in Shape Magazine.

Olivia Wilde: ‘You can’t be a good mother unless you really love yourself’

Olivia Wilde

This is Olivia Wilde’s new Revlon campaign called “Love is On.” When I heard about Livvy’s new contract, I was thrilled. She’s a gorgeous lady and a decent actress, but she’s had a terrible run of bad luck with acting projects. The last project I watched her in was Drinking Buddies on Netflix. She played the “cool girl” who guzzled beer and wasn’t looking for a guy to spend the night after hitting it. I want to say Olivia could land better roles, but that’s just me being hopeful.

I do like Olivia. She’s both intelligent and quick witted. Most of the time, she plays the love interest in movies, so she’s not losing out by transitioning to modelling. Playing spokesmodel is a lot less demanding (timewise) than spending months on a film set, so the Revlon gig lets Olivia be a selfless mother and still provide a platform for her new earth-mother brand. Olivia promoted Revlon in Times Square yesterday. She also gave some quotes about makeup and love to the December issue of InStyle:

On winter makeup: “I find that winter and the holidays is a fun time to just play a little bit more with makeup. I think I tend to wear more eye makeup and maybe bolder lip colors in the winter and that’s kind of what’s good about holiday parties–being able to go a little bit over the top. It’s the one time you can wear glitter without being a stripper, and I really enjoy that opportunity. The new Eye Art products are super fun and they’re perfect to pair with a sparkly top. That’s something I think is going to be fun for all of those holiday parties.”

On the “classic red lip”: “I like deep reds. The one problem with lipstick sometimes for me is that it doesn’t stay and I’m constantly wiping it off my forehead or my ear, and I really hate that, so I really like the ColorStay, the Ultimate Suede. There’s good nice, red, poppy colors, like “Boho Chic” is a fun one, and I think you should feel free to wear lip colors, but you really don’t want it to end up everywhere, and I honestly have found it on my forehead and my ear. I have no idea how my own lips get on my own neck. It just doesn’t make sense.”

She’s a huge holiday enthusiast: “Yeah, all of them! I love it. I really indulge throughout the holiday season. It kind of starts with Halloween and it goes ’til March. I really love to cook, and I love to cook holiday meals because I love all the sides. I love cooking Brussels sprouts and yams.”

Changing makeup with the seasons: “Yeah I think I use a thicker moisturizer in the winter because my skin gets really dry and kind of red. I really like the Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream. It’s pretty thick and I find that my skin drinks it up. It definitely makes it a better base for any sort of makeup I put on top of it because if you put makeup on top of dry, cracked skin, it’s not going to look pretty.”

How a woman “in love” looks: “When I see a woman walking down the street and I think, ‘She’s beautiful,’ it’s usually because she seems really confident and self-possessed and really loving herself. She’s not looking for validation from anyone else, and I do think you can’t love anyone else until you love yourself–it just doesn’t work, and then that love does translate to how you look. It radiates from you. And it can be the love of your partner, which obviously has such an amazing effect on how you feel. You can’t eat because you’re so excited…but it’s also love for your child. I find that the deep love that’s introduced to you as a mother makes you feel beauty of a different type, and you walk around the world with a different admiration and appreciation of the world. I will say you just can’t be a good partner, and you can’t be a good mother, and you can’t be a good friend unless you really love yourself, and I think that that is something we learn from life and maturity. I think it’s something that I really enjoy about getting older, is honing in on that a little bit and meditating on it a bit more and understanding the difference between self-obsession and confidence. I think that’s a normal part of growing up, understanding the difference. I think that beauty and style and all that fun stuff is a great way to celebrate that self love.”

Olivia has prepared well for this Revlon gig. She has plenty of product names on the tip of her tongue and ready to fire at journalists. Livvy is very funny too. What other cosmetic spokeswoman would say that holidays are “the one time you can wear glitter without being a stripper“? She’s a comedienne, and I bet Livvy used a perfectly deadpan voice to deliver her lines. I want her to talk more about moisturizer. This premature winter is already brutal for soft lady skin.

What do you think about Olivia’s theory that no one can be a good mother before they love themselves? It feels like common sense, but I hear people say it a lot.

Livvy’s baby daddy, Jason Sudeikis, stopped by to visit David Letterman earlier this week. Jason says he almost missed the birth of Otis Alexander because he went out to grab tacos. Then he stopped at a bar. After a few shots, Jason noticed a missed call, which was from a frantic Livvy. Was he joking? He does that a lot. Here’s a clip for the curious.
