Olivia Palermo - Get the Look (Guest Blogger!)

I've teamed up with two amazing bloggers to give you a complete guide to recreating Olivia Palermo's style! Emily from Flowers in Emily's Hair recreated her makeup look and Victoria from Glossy and Glitzy recreated her outfit. I recreated Olivia Palermo's classic curls which can be found [HERE] be sure to check it out! 


Hi guys! I'm Emily from Flowers in Emily's Hair and today I am going to be recreating Olivia Palermo's signature brown smokey eye! Smokey eyes can be pretty tricky. It takes loads of practice. I hear all of the time, "I can't do a smokey eye, I look like a raccoon!" Girl, I promise, with patience and lots of practice, it is so easy. You will look like Olivia in no time!

Before you start the smokey eye, here are a few tips to remember:
- Always prime your eyes! This helps it last all day and not crease! Who wants a creased up smokey eye? Not me!
- Start with lighter browns and build up to the darker colors. This will help the blending process. By going in with a black, you'll look nuts and it wouldn't look as flawless!
- Be very light handed. Like I said, build up the color. It might seem like it is taking forever, but it will look better in the end!
- If you want to clean up the line from the outer v, lay down a piece of tape from your lower lash line to the end of your brow. Do your eyeshadow, then take the tape off and you'll have a perfect clean edge! Or you can always clean the edge up with some concealer!
- Don't give up! You could look crazy from time to time but it will all come together with practice!

Now with that being said, lets get started! To ensure you don't make a mess of your face makeup, start with your eyes!



I first took caramel from Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia palette with a big fluffy brush and apply that in the crease using windshield wiper motions. 

The biggest thing with smokey eyes are starting with a light hand and building up to the darker colors. I then took sienna from the same palette and applied using the same technique. You will look a little crazy during this part, but it won't for long! I then took deep brown (from the same palette) and patted it all of my lid up to the start of the crease. Then taking sable from the Lorac Pro Palette or any medium brown shade and put that right into my crease using a crease brush. Then blend, blend, blend! Blending is key!



Then, taking Mac Kohl liner in feline I lined my waterline. Taking a flat definer brush, I lined the lash line with deep brown from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Maya Mia palette. Lastly, I take sienna and blend the liner and deep brown out with a pencil brush!


Finish with Mac lipstick in angel and voila! You are Olivia Palermo..okay we wish. But at least you look like her right?




Thank you so much for letting me guest post, Kyla! I hope you all learned a few tips! What's your favorite Olivia Palermo makeup look!
