Olivia Wilde admits that too much make-up can make her look like a ‘tranny’

Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde has admitted she is always wary applying her make-up as she doesn't want to end up looking like a transvestite.

The 27-year-old Irish American actress, who was recently named as the new brand ambassador for Revlon, alongside Emma Stone, said that her jaw line can make her look like a ‘tranny’.

"A strong eye and a strong lip is hard for my face," she told Stylelist.com. "I can go tranny really fast. It's true, because I have a really strong jaw. So for me, I just have to be cognizant of the way that it transforms my face."

The star, who was recently snapped filming her latest flick in New York, said she has always been conscious of her lips.

"I never had beautiful, luscious lips - that was never my defining characteristic." she revealed. "I focus more on playing with my eye makeup, I've always enjoyed it."

She said she loves to wear dramatic black winged eyeliner.

"French New Wave film stars like Anna Karina - I always really loved that aesthetic. You always gravitate toward things that naturally sort of fit your face," she explained. "I'm now confident enough with eye makeup that I can have a little mirror and throw on eyeliner in the back of a cab."

Speaking about her beauty faux pas in the past, Wilde said she is particularly embarrassed by her old school days.

"I was experimental as a kid, I had every different color hair. I had horrible, horrible ideas of what was cool, but then you learn and you play. I thank God Facebook didn't exist then," she laughed.

"I plucked off all my eyebrows in school! For seven years, I haven't touched my eyebrows. I mean, I don't let anyone near them with a tweezer."

The acting star said she has discovered a lot more confidence in her twenties.

"In your 20s, you're sort of figuring out, that you shouldn't be anybody else," she revealed. "And once you hit that, once you realize that, 'Oh, I have a thing that no one else has, I should celebrate that,' then I think you hit a stride of confidence that empowers you."
