Olivia Palermo Proves You Can Wear A Daytime Smoky Eye And Bold Lip
Start With A Flawless Foundation
A cushion compact is perfect for making your skin look flawless, radiant and dewy—just make sure to always pat product on instead of swiping for even and never streaky application.

Play With Shadow
You can get away with only using 1 eye shadow shade when you apply it on the entire lid. Sweep some along the lower lash line to get that lived-in look. They key to picking your shade is to match the undertones to the lipstick you're wearing—this one has a warm, red tint to it.

Load Up On The Mascara
As always, curl your lashes and apply multiple coats of mascara. We love that Olivia also opted to coat her lower lashes as well.

Fill In your Brows
A mechanical brow pencil with a thin tip is perfect for creating a natural, full-looking brow. Use short flicking motions to create the look of extra brows in sparse areas.

Make Your Pout Pop
A bold red lip is the key to this makeup look. One applying a liquid lipstick, use concealer and a brush to clean up edges and fix smudges.

The cardinal rule of makeup has always been to only highlight 1 feature at a time—for example, if you wear a bold lip, keep your eyes neutral and vice-versa. Leave it to none other than Olivia Palermo to throw that myth out the window and encourage us to step out of the box. Here, she opted for a smoldering brown smoky eye and a bright red (almost orange-hued) lip—and yes, she even filled in her brows and applied blush. That solves it: we’re going for the 1-2 punch and here’s how to get it.
