Olivia Munn clearly is a master of beauty. From a bright lip to a golden glow, she wears almost any look with aplomb. Check out some of our favorites that you can try out for yourself this summer.


1. Sapphire blue shadow

Who says Asians can’t wear blue eyeshadow? The key, as shown on Munn above, is to stick with a sapphire blue and keep the color sheer (no cat-eyes here!). Complement the look with a slight flush and neutral lips. Let the eyes do the talking by pulling back hair into a chic chignon or messy topknot.


2. A coral-orange lip and loads of mascara

We love this look on Munn — it’s fresh, clean and yet glamorous, all at the same time. Munn usually likes a smoky eye, but we love how focusing on her upper lid and keeping her eyes unlined really opens up her eyes. And you don’t have to go full-on glam like Munn — just pull back one side of your hair (let the other side fall forward) and pin with metallic bobby pins (cross them, like an “X”) for a more everyday look.


3. Smoky eyes and nude lips with a bit of a contour

This is Munn’s go-to look. What really makes this ubiquitous combo (smoky eye-nude lip) work is her slicked back long bob. Pair with a breezy dress for summer and you’ll still look hot while staying cool.


4. Matte pink lips with a hint of pink blush

When you’re doing a bold lip, most people prefer to skip the blush, but we like how Munn kept her eyes minimal and complemented her matte pink lip with a sheer pink flush. If you’re on the paler side, the blush is just what you need to balance such a bold statement on the lips. And again, the pulled-back hair keeps the look edgy, not cheesy, and keeps all eyes on the mouth.


5. Peachy nude lips and bronze eyes

Another retro ‘do for Munn, but this time paired with bronze shadow and peachy-nude lips. A bit of contour with a matte bronzer keeps Munn from looking washed out — it’s a chic, monochromatic look.


6. A golden glow with a strong flush

Perhaps the easiest look to pull off this summer, sweep matte bronzer to forehead, up cheekbones, down the nose (all places where the sun naturally hits), line the upper lid and dab on lip balm. Pull hair back into a chignon or ponytail and you’re ready to go.
