Occupation: Gladiator and Crisis Manager
Personal Catch Phrase: “It’s handled.”
Beauty Lesson: Pink lips can go corporate if you use choose a soft shade in a cream formula.
Beauty Must-Have: Lipstick
Olivia always sports a rosy pink lip with a little bit of a sheen. To avoid looking ashy, opt for a pink hue that has a little bit of depth— more rose than white. Deeper shades also look less flirty and more polished. We like this “Nubile” shade from Tom Ford’s Lip Color Shine collection.
