For the Cowboys and Aliens premiere, Chanel makeup artist Melanie Ingelssis started by rimming the entire eye, waterline included, with a soft kohl pencil and then applying a shimmering cream shadow to the lids as a base. Next, she defined the outer and inner areas of with a black shadow for a sexy, smudgy look. "The trick to a beautiful smoky eye is blending, so I took a brush and with one motion, blended the upper and lower colors together," says Ingelssis. Curling Wilde's lashes and adding two coats of mascara was the finishing touch to elegant and timeless look.

Wilde's hair pro, David Babaii created this glossy style for the L.A. premiere of The Change Up without even using a flatiron! He started by smoothing pequi oil - derived from pequi fruit, it's known as the beauty secret of the Amazon rainforest - through wet hair. "It blocks out humidity for straight hair that lasts all night long," explains Babaii. He gave Wilde's bangs a game-day trim and then blew them dry with a small round brush to create a slight curve into the eyebrows.

"Olivia is gorgeous!" says her hairstylist Peter Butler of her waves at the Tribeca Film Festival. Butler created the star's look by applying mousse to damp strands, then blow-dried them.

Wilde went for minimal makeup at the ACE Awards in New York City. Before applying foundation, her makeup artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato gave Wilde a mini-face massage to stimulate the blood vessels in her skin, and impart a natural flush. "I start by prepping the skin with moisturizer and a good massage - the massage is my primer," he said. Ceciliato blended different shades of foundation over the star's face to impart a subtle contour. "I always use two foundations: The lighter one under the eyes, on the center of the forehead, and on the chin. The darker shade is placed around the hairline, on the jaw, neck, and cheek, then I blend everything together."
