Clearly, Olivia Palermo is immune to the winter beauty blues. While some might succumb to New York City’s record-breaking temps and icy winds, the style star sprinted through Fashion Week looking fresh and flawless (not that we’d expect anything less).
Inspired by her cold weather beauty, we grabbed a few tips from makeup artist Daniel Martin, who prepped the star throughout the week. One of our favorite moments took place on Feb. 13 when Palermo hit the Fendi NYC Flagship Boutique Inauguration Party after a full day of shows. Since he was taking her makeup from day to night, Martin went with a nude smoky eye, paired with sunkissed skin. He used Dior’s Diorskin Nude Air Tan Healthy Glow Sun Powder in Amber ($52; sephora.com) to shape her eyes and sculpt her cheeks, topping her complexion with the brand’s Vibrant Color Powder Blush in Cocktail Peach ($43; sephora.com) for a healthy pop of color. Next, he moved on to the eyes. “Lining the top and bottom water lines (using Dior Kohl pencil in smoky black; $32; sephora.com) adds depth while smudging neutral shades onto the lid with Dior's new Eye Reviver shadow kit (available on dior.com on March 1),” Martin tells InStyle. His helpful hint? “Use your finger to smudge the eyeshadows to create that 'after-hours' effect on the eye."
While sitting front row at Diane Von Furstengburg on Feb. 15, Palermo successfully braved the cold yet again. “When you're short on time, but need to look polished without trying too hard, give the eyes your attention," Martin tells us. First, he perfected her skin with foundation and concealer and brought out her signature glow using Dior’s Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Loose Powder in #10 ($56; dior.com), followed by Diorblush Vibrant Color Powder Blush in Lucky Pink ($43; sephora.com) along the apples of her cheeks. Once applying the brand's Addict It-Line Liquid Eyeliner in It-Black ($32; sephora.com), the newlywed's go-to cat eye finished off the look.
