7 Supersimple Ways to Channel Rita Ora in Your Everyday Looks
Blond bombshell Rita Ora's got some major moxie when it comes to her beauty routine. We partnered with Rimmel London to highlight some of her most distinct looks.
Armed with a voice destined for the pop charts, hit maker Rita Ora has carved out a space for herself in the beauty landscape as well, consistently stepping out on red carpets and stages in looks that garner as much attention as her music. Whether it's an au courant choppy bob or her signature bold red lip, the chanteuse knows how to put her personal stamp on style. Check out a few of our favorite moments along with tips for incorporating a bit of Rita into your own beauty repertoire.
Bring On the Winged Eyeliner
Practically a Summer staple, winged eyeliner is the go-to look for both daytime and evening. For something office appropriate, use a dark shadow and angled brush to create a simple flick that extends out from the end of your lash line. Come evening, grab an angled pen and trace the shadow for maximum glam.
Know When to Rock Bare Lips
Don’t confuse neutral lipstick with going au naturel; the former is distinctly flattering while still being understated. Use the power of a subtly toned shade, like Rimmel London's My Eternity from its Stay Glossy line, to update a simple fresh-faced look, or if you're donning heavy eye makeup, wear it to create balance.
Try a Slick Ponytail With a Center Part
When the Summer heat kicks up and humidity is in full force, you're probably going to want to get your hair off your neck. But don't just put it up all willy-nilly. Take a cue from Rita and go with a sleek center-parted ponytail. Using a thin comb, create a sharp part down the center of your scalp and then pull your hair back into a tight ponytail. Straighten the ends to complete.
Give Bold Red Puckers a Shot
Crimson lipstick is not for the faint of heart, but for those glamorous occasions when a powerful lip is necessary, look no further than the singing siren. Start by lining the outer edge of your lips with Rimmel’s long-lasting 1000 Kisses Lip Liner in Red Dynamite, and then top it off with a mod shade of red lipstick. Use concealer and a thin brush to outline the edges — this will make your pout really pop.
Go For the Choppy Platinum Bob (or Lob)
Have long wavy tresses? Ask your stylist for a lob. Already have a lob? Maybe it's time to go full-on bob. Of course, if you're not ready to commit to above-the-shoulder hair, you can achieve a similar look by using a flatiron to create pin-straight ends. Add texture by rubbing a quarter-size dollop of hair wax in your palm and working it through your strands.
Try Your Hand at Fun Summer Nails
Nail art has certainly taken a turn for the more subdued, but Summer is the perfect time to push aside those bland palettes and go bold. Paint each finger with a different bright shade, or for something slightly more demure, stick with one color and add delicate nail art at the base or tip of the nail.
Wear a Dramatic Topknot
Topknots are a lazy girl's best friend because they solve even the worst of hair dilemmas. To achieve this style, pull hair into a high ponytail at the top of your head and tie with a small elastic band (be sure to smooth out any flyaways). Twist loose hair around the band and secure with bobby pins.
