Olivia Palermo debuts Ciaté London collection

Olivia Palermo has explained how to get the perfect smokey eye courtesy of her new Ciaté London collection.

The former reality TV star is the beauty company's guest creative director and as part of that has come up with a new 11-piece collection. Olivia's favourite offerings are The Cheekbone Cheat Duos, which come in two shades and have ingredients to help soak up oiliness too.

"They have a little bit of bronzer and a bit of blush together," the star told "Handbags are being made smaller and smaller these days, and when you go out, it's hard to fit all of the touch-up products you need in your purse. So I thought combining them would be a little bit more lightweight and a little bit more accessible."

Also in the collection are kohl liners, semi-matte lipsticks in red, nude, pink and burgundy and a new line of nail shades.

On top of that there's an eyeshadow palette which makes creating smokey looks a cinch and features matte and sparkling shades. Olivia explained how she gets the perfect smokey look for her eyes, using products from the line and some others too.

"[Using the collection's Smokey Suede Eyeshadow Palette], I start with a mixture of all of the browns. I start on the outer corner and then work my way in. It's always better to have a little bit of a lighter colour on the inner corners," she said. "You should definitely have variations of eye brushes. I have an eclectic group - some are from Charlotte Tilbury, some are from Bobbi Brown, some are from Sephora. And it's very important that you clean your brushes."

Olivia wanted the line to appeal to a broad range of people, so she tried to keep the colour palette muted. It means it should allow women to go from day to night quickly and easily.
