Olivia Palermo is most definately one of my style icons. Her effortless chic style and beauty are just awe-inspiring.
You can then imagine my excitement when I came across this beautiful photograph of her, posing for Haute Muse Magazine. I instantly fell in love with her makeup look - a soft smokey eye paired with a natural pink lip - and thought of filming a tutorial for it!

I went rummaging through my makeup collection, in search of products I could use to recreate the look. I found some gems, high end and drugstore and here's what I created...

You look gorgeous : D
I really don't like that girl.. I know you're not supposed to judge people from TV, but she seems like SUCH a rotten personality and that really kills her 'glow' in my opinion -__-"

My girl crush Olivia Palermo, she is absolutely GORGEOUS! I see you use painterly to achieve this look, have you ever tried a darker primer for the eyes to really grab that color on the lid. I use a dark grease paint stick and the dark black shadow on my lid makes my dark brown eyes look even lighter.
