While blue and green makeup have gotten more playtime than they have in years, there is one staple we’ll always gladly go back to: little black eyeliner. Like red lipstick and pink blush, it’s a classic that has stood the test of time. It’s also responsible for many of our favorite red carpet beauty looks, including this sultry kohl-rimmed eye moment from Olivia Palermo.

The designer attended FEED's 6th Annual Party Under the Stars at Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club wearing one of her sexiest looks to date. Black eyeliner was applied and subtly smudged along her top and lower lash lines, while her lids were touched with neutral shimmery shadow and her top and bottom lashes were enhanced with mascara.

A striking contour and a simple nude lip finished off the makeup, while her ultra-shiny lob was left effortless with a slight wave at the ends.

To copy Palermo's look, we like tight-lining out eyes with a kajal pencil like the Yves Saint Lauren Couture Kajal Pencil in Noir Ardent ($35; nordstrom.com) and then gently smudging the top line with our fingers or blending with a small eyeliner brush.
