Olivia Wilde makeup tutorial – 2015 Oscar’s

olivia wilde makeup tutorial

I don’t know about you, but I sit and watch 2 things at the Oscars ~

  1. The clothes
  2. The makeup

The next morning I go rummaging through my makeup drawer and try to recreate the looks, most of the time with little to no success. Once again I tried various looks, and ended up having to search online for a “how-to” tutorial of Olivia Wilde’s Oscar makeup (I loved the balance of simple and dramatic). Of course I can NEVER get that sweeping eyeliner right, so I searched for a video and figured I’d share….I hope you enjoy. She makes it look SO easy. One of these days I’ll do a recreation video and give you a good laugh.

Where to Stay:

Bacolet Beach Club 

I love the intimacy of a boutique hotel, ant the Bacolet Beach Club offers that luxe experience in a quiet setting. When you book ask to be put into one of the 15 luxurious, marble tiled suites!! Oh and don’t miss the infinity pool overlooking the hotel’s private bay.


With only 40 rooms, and a more traditional island flavor, Chic gives you that special experience at a value price that will leave you plenty left over to experience their SPA!

Castara Retreats

You’re in the islands, so why NOT stay at an eco-resort? Yes, this is another boutique experience, with an AMAZING restaurant serving freshly caught fish each day, lamb, chicken and steak dishes, home-made pastas, inventive vegetarian options. Stay in a tree-top apartment or a remodeled fisherman’s shack, that’s nothing like ANY shack you imagine. Bring your binoculars for a little (or a lot of) bird watching.

Trinidad & Tobago is located in the southeastern region of the Caribbean. With its careful approach to tourism, the dual-island nation offers a distinct blend of culture, eclectic cuisine and an assortment of eco-adventure activities. Trinidad, the ‘cultural capital of the Caribbean,’ is home to the world famous Carnival and the birthplace of the steel pan drum, the only new acoustic instrument to be invented in the 20th century.  Tobago, sister island to Trinidad, is the quintessential Caribbean island with secluded beaches, quaint villages, private villas and award-winning eco-attractions that include the Main Ridge Rainforest, the oldest protected reserve in the western hemisphere and the six-time award winner for World’s Leading Ecotourism Destination by the World Travel Awards.

My healthy struggle


I'm the first to admit that I live a pretty amazing life. If you had asked me ten or fifteen years ago if I'd be traveling around the world, visiting amazing destinations or interviewing celebrities and walking red carpets, I would have thought you … [Continue reading]
