Why Olivia Palermo should be your new hair and makeup muse
Mon, 25 July 2011 11:17AM
Primpettes, if you’re looking for a little hair and makeup inspiration to start the week, you’ve come to the right place, because Miss OP has again, managed to outshine her fellow red-carpet companions with her trademark subtly-golden-highlighted hair and soft-as makeup up, this time at The Smurfs premier .
She’s the perfect example of how classic hair and makeup choices will never let you down. She’s got just the right amount of texture in her hair to keep it looking relaxed and wearable, and her skin, permanently dewy, thanks to a hint of rose blush on the cheeks and gloss.
I love the way that unlike other young guns, she doesn’t allow her makeup to take over. It never distracts from her outfit, instead, she uses it as a finishing point, to leave her skin and eyes looking exactly how you’d imagine them to look naturally.
She’s testament to the saying that sometimes, less is best. It’s all about enhancing what you’ve got, like building on your natural hair colour with a few highlights, and learning how to play up your favourite features, like your high-set cheekbones, your eyes, or your full pout.
Tell me Primpetts,
What’s your favourite feature?
Are you a less-is-best kinda girl?
Are you a fan of Olivia P?
