FOTD: Olivia Palermo Inspired

Her wardrobe is to die for, her makeup simple and sophisticated, her hair toussled effortlessly, her style… hmm!! I have to admit, I have a crush on Olivia Palermo. Yes I do still like Jessica Alba, Rachel Bilsen, Keira Knightley, Priyanka Chopra, and all the other beautiful ladies out there but for now, let’s just stick with one for this post.

Olivia Palermo

You can see how her eyes is subtle yet that line on her upper lashline is rather obvious.
Her peachy pink cheeks, contoured cheekbones, highlighted areas around her face.

Well I tried…

And of course I’m not her, but I could be inspired by her style.

When my sister got home, she saw me and said, “Ooh nice makeup! It’s really nice!”
Hehehe I guess I succeeded in what I wanted to achieve, just a natural flawless effortless sophisticated look that can be worn day to night, anytime.

Oh jeebus, I realise I haven’t done my brows – oh well!
I think in real life the blush is slightly more “pop” though it looks so subtle in photography. (Damn you photography)
This was taken outside with sunlight.
No editing.
