Check out the lessons we learned below!
Getting Ready Fast
Olivia Culpo, a self-described makeup junkie, doesn't need a mirror to do her makeup. Her go-to look is light and easy, so she can get ready anywhere, any time (an important skill for the pageant winner). The key is a makeup bag with the essential items (mascara, blush, highlighter, etc) on hand. Build your own with your favorite makeup, or pick up a set!
Charlotte Tilbury's foundation is a lightweight formula that celebrities love for its ability to soft focus lines and pores, "like an Instagram filter," the beauty pro said. "I was very inspired by another supermodel friend of mine, Gisele Bundchen, who has the glowing skin all the time. I was like how can I shrink her and put her in a pot?" The result: Wonder Glow.
While finishing the application of foundation, Charlotte reminded us "Don't ever forget to do the ears and make it go on to the neck," and Olivia add "Oh yeah, that's a good one."

"I always like to go one shade lighter than the foundation," she said. "Another thing: Never go too high up to the lash line. Otherwise, that will make your eyes look smaller and puffier." Instead, the makeup artist placed the majority of the product in "the dome," where dark circle tend to appear.
"The Feline Flip Pen is something that I developed working with Kate Moss for years, always doing cat eye on her," she said. "I am cat-eye, smokey eye 'til I die."
For the perfect cat-eye, the pro started with the product at the inner corner of the eye. "Go right into the lashline," she directed. "That's the trick." Once you've added the base line, Charlotte suggests looking into a mirror and placing a dot where you want the cat-eye to finish. Next, carefully connect the dots. Then, use your finished eyeliner as the template for the other eye.

Charlotte's finishing touch: "You need powder on the red carpet because the lights can pick up shine in a way that when you are looking at someone in real life, it's fine, but on camera it makes you look like a bit shiny face," she said with her two shades of Air Brush Micro-Powders in her hand. "This is something I have in every single bag that I leave the house with, but you have to know where to put it," Olivia added.
The trick is to apply powder to the center of the face only. "We love shine on the outside of the face," the makeup artist revealed.
