Who: Rita Ora at the 2017 Met Gala
The Look: 1930’s Hollywood
The Inspiration: Rita’s gorgeous silk gown confection by Marchesa immediately inspired Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung to give Rita a strong red lip to match her dress. Kathy added strong brows and bold lashes with a matte skin finish, added glowing shimmery highlights on the cheekbones and lower lash line.
How to Get the Look:
Kathy applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer all over Rita’s cleansed face to create a smooth mattifying canvas for makeup. She then applied Rimmel London Match Perfection 2 ‘n 1 Concealer in shade Light with her ring finger in a tapping motion underneath Rita’s eyes, erasing dark circles. Kathy applied Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in Sand with a flat foundation brush in broad strokes over Rita’s face, and blended with a damp sponge, giving Rita a sheer, natural looking matte finish.
Kathy used Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Golden Sands to highlight the tops of Rita’s cheekbones, above her jawline and down length of her nose. She contoured the hollows under her cheekbones, just under her jawbone and under her chin using a narrow wedge brush and applied the blush using a rounded brush on the apples of her cheeks and extended towards temples.
Kathy added a natural glow and a healthy dose of color by applying Rimmel London’s Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze, with a large fluffy brush, by dusting lightly along hairline, on temples, on cheeks and under chin. She also blended into the face to soften the contour.
Kathy applied the beige shade of the Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Shadow Contouring Palette in Keep Calm & Wear Gold all over the eyelid to browbone as a base color and browbone highlighter. She used the dark beige matte shade in the eye socket hollow to enhance the crease. She lined Rita’s eyes using Rimmel ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner by applying a thin line along the lashes to subtlety blend in the lash line. Lastly, she enhanced Rita’s eye look by using Rimmel London’s brand new volumizing, clump-free Shake It Fresh Mascara to complete the look.
Kathy gave Rita a structured brow, using Rimmel London Brow This Way Brow Sculpting Kit in Dark Brown. She brushed the powder on to fill in, and extend the shape and give structure to Rita’s eyebrows. She then used Brow This Way Brow Styling Gel in Clear to keep stray hairs in place.
Kathy lined Rita’s lips using Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Lip Liner in Red Dynamite to give added shape and staying power. She finished off the lips by applying Rimmel London’s Show Off Lip Velvet in Burning Lava and Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in Kiss of Life. She layered Rimmel London #Insta Fix & Matte Translucent Powder in between the layers to keep everything in place.
