I just love Olivia Munn’s look! Whenever I see pics of her I can’t help but have a severe dose of hair envy! Always sporting lush, shiny looking strands she is the epitome of classic, pared-back beauty. I’m a big fan of women allowing their gorgeous complexion and super-cute freckles to shine rather than cover them up under layers of heavy duty foundation. And those brows! Always groomed to perfection, but allowed to be a little on the natural side. Love her!
Olivia was recently snapped looking super glam at the Los Angeles premiere of Mortdecai at the TCL Chinese Theatre on January 21. The star wore a black sheer-panel Ralph Rucci gown for the red carpet, with her raven locks in big and bouncy curls, keeping her accessories simple with just a few rings on her fingers.
She complemented her look with beautiful, minimal makeup that brings out her best features.
Want to steal her look? For soft, luscious curls with incredible volume try using a lightweight voluminising mousse worked right through the hair from the roots to the ends. After setting the hair in large curlers, or tonging large sections around a large-barrel curling iron, pin the curls up loosely to set. After the curls have cooled, unpin and shake gently with the fingers to loosen and create some volume. Brush out very gently with a large soft paddle brush to even out the curls and create that classic wave. You could finish with a light mist of shine serum or a gloss to give the hair a little extra sheen, but be careful not to go overboard. You want to hair to look loose, bouncy and soft, not stiff, over-texturised or greasy in any way.
To get her dreamy makeup look, start with a primer (of course) to keep pores in check. I would use a non-mattifying primer as you want the skin to really glow.
For her base, use a light to medium coverage liquid foundation applied sparingly with a dampened beauty blender or sponge. Skip the powder to keep that glowy, dewy look. Olivia’s pared her perfect base with a gorgeous peach cheek, natural tawny rose-hued lips and a tiny hint of lilac purple mascara, guaranteed to make those beautiful hazel peepers pop!
To complete the look, her natural-looking brows are groomed with an eyebrow comb and set into place with a hint of eyebrow gel or wax. You could also use a hint of clear mascara after lightly filling in any gaps in the brow with a pencil or a powder. Spoolies and clean mascara wands are terrific at grooming unruly brows; try spritzing your wand with a tiny bit of medium hold hairspray before sweeping through the brows to hold them in place.
