With all these award shows happening, from the Oscars to the Grammys, these are definitely some great events to find some beauty inspiration. One of my favourite red carpet looks this year was Rita Ora at the 2014 Grammys. Her curls had a cool vintage Hollywood glamour to them and her makeup complemented her wardrobe really well. Her makeup stood out to me, as we’re used to seeing a lot of celebrities playing it safe with bronze, taupes and neutral tones or maybe red lips with a winged eyeliner. Glad she took some risk and played it up with a bit of colour for her eye makeup!
Since I have very different features from Rita Ora, it was a bit of a challenge to duplicate this look! I don’t really have double eyelids, so I had to bring the colour of the eyeshadow up further for it to be visible. And of course I’m missing the massive lashes! I chose to keep my lashes more subtle, since I wasn’t actually walking any red carpets that day! For the hair, I used a 1″ curling wand. If I wanted to achieve more volume at the roots, I could opt to use hot rollers or tease the base with some dust powder hair products before curling or simply set the curls after using the iron.
