With many companies sticking with a work from home policy indefinitely, rushing to look polished before dialing into Zoom or FaceTime meetings has become the daily norm. However, feeling and looking your best is as easy as popping on a professional blouse (you'll only be seen from the waist up after all!) and adding a swipe or two of lip color. To help get you situated on finding the best shade, we tasked lipstick connoisseur Sam Tsan to match her favorite products to an assortment of Olivia Palermo Collection tops. Read on to see her winning picks, which will look just as flawless on screen as they do IRL. 

Charlotte Tilbury 'In Love with Olivia' Hot Lips 2,
$37, available at

"For this incredibly chic color-blocked top, I would pair it with 'In Love with Olivia' from our Hot Lips 2 collection! A sumptuous pink shade stands out against the sleek tank, and Charlotte designed the lipstick in homage to Olivia's effortless beauty and incredible style."

Charlotte Tilbury 'Pillow Talk' Lipstick, 
$34, available at

"With a classicly romantic blouse, I would have to go for the universally flattering, best-selling, 'Pillow Talk' lipstick, which comes in three different hues to suit every complexion. There is something about a soft rosy lip that would perfectly complement this pastel blue!"

Charlotte Tilbury 'Tell Laura' Hot Lips, 
$34, available at

"I love pairing white with timeless makeup. A bright red lip instantly elevates any outfit but particularly makes a sexy, bold statement when paired with a crisp button-up. 'Tell Laura' is the most stunning warm orange/geranium red matte, that's incredibly hydrating and suits everyone. Plus, the velvety texture makes your lips look smooth and full."

Charlotte Tilbury 'Refresh Rose' Collagen Lip Bath, 
$35; 'First Dance' Matte Revolution, $34,
both available at

"This top is so dreamy and sophisticated for a digital call or a date night! The 'First Dance' lipstick would be my choice as its a blushed, berry-rose lipstick that is great to press on with your fingertips as more of a stain. However, if you want to go more natural, this top would also look gorgeous paired with a wash of the Collagen Lip Bath in 'Refresh Rose'. This gloss gives a clear shine that leaves lips looking super freshand hydrated."
