OnlyOnAOL: Olivia Wilde on giving back and being beautiful
BY MOLLY WINDING
Olivia Wilde is the epitome of the 'cool girl' -- you know, she was the girl in high school that always dressed better than anyone else, seemed to be friends with everyone and was also really smart. She was the girl that seemed really unapproachable until you got paired with her for a class project, when you realized she was actually the nicest person ever. You remember that girl? That's Wilde.
Beauty, brains and a big heart is Olivia Wilde in a nutshell, and we had the pleasure of chatting with her at Revlon's Love is On Million Dollar Challenge event Wednesday evening. Wilde is a brand ambassador for Revlon because she loves the brand's products and philanthropic efforts.
"The thing about this One Million Dollar Challenge is that it's Revlon's way of supporting existing, female-centric organizations geared towards improving women's health," Wilde said.
"I'm very proud to work with a brand that's been so philanthropic for so many years," she said, "focusing primarily on cancer research and then broadening those efforts to heart disease and diabetes as well, which are the three main killers of women in this country."
The actress-slash-activist is no stranger to doing good and raising awareness of important issues, especially those involving women, including the Let Girls Learn initiative, spearheaded by Barack and Michelle Obama, which seeks to help the more than 62 million girls around the world who are not in school– half of whom are adolescent – go to school and stay in school.
Clearly, Wilde has a fierce, caring soul, and she's just as beautiful outside as she is on the inside -- so what exactly does she do to maintain her physical beauty? Use Revlon products, of course!
"I love that they're female friendly," Wilde said of the brand. "I think they're really made for women who are on the go, women who are busy."
As for her own daily regimen, the actress and mother says she loves Revlon's eyeliners and eyeshadow palettes as well as their lip butters, lip crayons and nail polishes.
"I put on the Revlon CC cream," Wilde said, detailing her morning makeup routine. "It's SPF 30, and I'm so pale there's really no other option. I usually just do that and some concealer and mascara and a little eyebrow pencil, and that's what I do every day."
It's nice to know there are still stars out there who don't require entire teams of professional airbrush artists to work on them before heading to the grocery store, but then again, that's just not the kind of girl Olivia Wilde is. Down to earth, heartfelt, articulate and talented only begin to describe the natural beauty, and we're so happy to have been able to speak with her about an organization so close to her heart.
