Why Olivia Wilde Doesn't Tweeze Her Brows

Olivia Wilde

When Olivia Wilde gets home from a shoot, her top priority is washing her face. “I usually wash [it] twice. First, to remove all the makeup, and then again to really give my face a good scrub,” she tells the New York Times’s T Magazine. “I like to get it clean at the end of a workday using a good hot towel.”

To maintain a clear complexion, Wilde often goes without makeup — “In order to give my skin a rest,” she explains — and indulges in an occasional facial. She also swears by Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer.

But when she is going glam, the Revlon spokeswoman starts with the brand’s Colorstay or PhotoReady Foundation, “with a little moisturizer for a light look,” she shares. Another must? “I’ve been using the new Revlon Lip Butters on my lips,” she reveals. “They’re so moisturizing.”

One surprising beauty fact: the actress doesn’t tweeze her eyebrows. “I’ve been letting them grow in for years,” she says. “I try to fill them in wherever nature has abandoned me. I just fill in under the arch and soften them up a bit.”

And with her hair lighter these days — “I am really enjoying being a blonde,” she shares — she also goes for a brighter brow color. “My natural brows are quite pointy,” she reveals. “I soften them so I look less like some evil Disney queen!” Tell us: What’s your most surprising beauty fact?

That actually did not explain WHY at all.

I don’t know what the big deal is about her. I do not think she is attractive in the least.

Tshape on

clearly she has no need to tweeze, if that’s her natural brow. duh.

She may not tweeze, she may use an alternative. Find it hard to believe that her brows are naturally well shaped.

Tammy on

I agree, Becky. I don’t find her attractive at all.

Psh, yeah right. Her eyebrows look like pencil-thin lines.

The headline for this article was all wrong. It should have been something like “Olivia’s facial care routine” not about her eyebrows. I don’t like the blonde hair. The darker hair brings out her light colored eyes much better.

Don’t know what movie requires her to be a blonde, but it looks horrible.
