Blushing beauty!

She may have plans to launch a fashion blog, but Olivia Palermo keeps proving time and time again that she knows a thing or two about hair and makeup as well.

At The White Fairy Tale Love Ball in Crespieres, France on Wednesday, the 25-year-old reality TV star complemented her smoky eyes with a pop of rosy color on her cheeks.

Two that we love: Maybelline Fit Me Blush ($4.99, and Benefit Bella Bamba ($28,
