She’s Washington’s most go-to problem solver, she’s got a killer team of gladiators, an affinity for popcorn and fine wine, her dad is Command, her (almost) ex-boyfriend is a spy, and she has a very public “thing” for the President. She’s Olivia Pope and she’s mastered the art of classic beauty. Now you can too! No splurge necessary.
Olivia is a fan of neutral palettes (I mean, have you seen the woman’s living room? Cream everywhere!) She likes to keep her beauty look the same. Her go-to color? A mauve pink that’s perfect for day or night. We love this Essie shade, “Fun in the Gondola.“

A busy woman on the go needs beauty products that can keep up with her lifestyle. That means, long-wearing, water-resistant shadows that are easy to apply and won’t crease. Because “creased shadow” and “Oval Office” just don’t mix. Take a cue from Olivia and opt for a subtle neutral shadow that can take you from breakfast to that all-nighter that you may have to pull. Try H&M Beauty Eye Colour-To-Go Eyeshadow Pencil in Cordoba.
