Olivia Wilde: “Girls don’t get dressed up for guys; we get dressed up for girls”


On men and makeup:

“All men are terrified of lipstick. But girls don’t get dressed up for guys; we get dressed up for girls. So I wear whatever I think looks best.”

On her beauty inspiration:

“I like to be bold on the red carpet, and the benefit of working with so many brilliant makeup artists is that I get to ask a lot of questions and say, ‘okay so when I go out next week to that birthday party I am going to try my own version of this with my own tools.’”

On her daily look:

“I don’t leave the house without a little foundation, concealer and mascara [on]. I think that for a lot of women it’s not about disguising yourself, it’s just about giving yourself a little bump in confidence. The older I get, the more I get to know what works best for me. Makeup is not about changing who you are, it’s about understanding your face and highlighting your best features.”

… says Olivia.

Celebrity Trainer Jillian Michaels: ‘Strong, not skinny, is now sexy’


On the evolution of fitness trends:

“I’ve watched the trend go from being all about the low-intensity fat-burning zone to crazy for HIIT. People are also moving away from machines and toward body-weight and free-weight training. Strong, not skinny, is now sexy, and long workouts are a thing of the past.”

On the best everyday exercisers:

“The best teacher is ultimately the best student. I train in different modalities so that each muscle is targeted twice a week, with two days of rest in between. So if I do a workout that’s focused mostly on ‘push’ muscles [triceps and those in the chest and front of the should] like yoga, I don’t train those muscles again for two days and instead focus on ‘pull’ muscles [traps, biceps and those in the back]. I also do HIIT in almost every workout to improve my VO₂ max and keep my metabolism cranking.”

On the myth that lifting weights will make women “bigger”:

“On the contrary, [weight lifting] will help you amp up your metabolism, shed fat, and maintain lean muscle mass and strong bone density.”
