We recently attended an event hosted by Revlon honouring the winners of their Love Is On Million Dollar Challenge. A little backstory on this: Revlon created a friendly competition to see which organisation could raise the most money for charities dedicated to combatting women's health issues. Whoever raised the most money got an additional million dollars from Revlon donated to their charity of choice. So what better woman to have represent this amazing outreach effort than Revlon brand ambassador and activist Olivia Wilde?
The stunning beauty is not only breathtakingly gorgeous, she's also completely hysterical (but we're betting you already knew that). Wilde took the time to answer some of our pressing beauty questions—like what on earth she's doing to prevent herself from ageing—in typical comedic Olivia Wilde fashion.

There are some really hilarious pictures of you on Instagram trying to get ready in light of having a little one and a busy schedule, so what does your routine usually consist of?
Wilde: Really, really, really simple. I put on the Revlon CC Cream ($12), I fill in my eyebrows, I put on some concealer and some mascara, and I'm out the door. I don't have time for anything else. I mean, that's just like day to day. I'm really, really low-maintenance in general, but I do enjoy getting dressed up, you know? I think that's fun!
Do you have a product that's a must-have, take-with-you-everywhere type of product?
Wilde: I mean, concealer. That or just like a tinted moisturizer. I feel like if I have that, then I feel like I'm kind of good to go. Mostly because of the sun honestly, like I'm so pale. [Laughs] I would never go outside with nothing on. It's just not part of my world.
You don't seem to age—maybe the SPF is your secret! But what magic elixir are you drinking?
Wilde: Nothing. Water? I try. Or maybe it's the wine. Who knows?
[Laughs] Totally! So what's the best beauty advice your mom ever gave you?
Wilde: It's funny, my mom would always tell me to use sunscreen—she was big into that, and growing up as a California girl she was kind of ahead of her time. And moisturize! No matter how great your makeup is, if you don't treat your skin well and prep your skin well, it's not gonna look great.
One more question. I see that you really love dancing as a workout.
What is a must-have on your playlist?
Wilde: Wow… Beyoncé. I mean it's just never gonna fail. It's like The Beatles, it's just always gonna be good.
