Olivia Wilde - Olivia Wilde prefers a natural look

Olivia Wilde says less is more when it comes to make-up.

The 'Rush' actress only ever emphasises one feature at a time because she believes women with a strong bone structure should keep things simple.

She told the Metro newspaper: ''I would never do a bold lip and a bold eye. It can be done well but I know I have exaggerated features, like a big jaw, so it just doesn't work for me.

''It's not a bad thing. It's just a family trait and, as I've got older I've learned how to work it. Either go bold on the lips, eyes or with something you're wearing.''

The 29-year-old star - who has been a beauty ambassador for Revlon since 2011 - also prefers the natural look when it comes to her hair and always opts for loose, beachy waves rather than artificial-looking curls.

Olivia explained: ''Too many curls look a bit corny. It's something I call the LA curl. It's where people put their hair in a curling iron and don't brush it out. It's important to keep movement in your hair.''

The brunette likes to save up-dos for special occasions as she believes they can look too glamorous.

She said: ''They can really show off an eye look you're sporting. But make sure it's the right kind of up-do. You can't do the whole Audrey Hepburn hair for a party because it's too much.''
