Rita Ora "Black Widow" Makeup

I had so many requests after my last post featuring Iggy Azalea's look to do Rita Ora's makeup also from the same music video - Black Widow. Here are some screenshots for reference.

Rita wore extremely dark and almost geometric black eyeliner, and and a nude-y pink lip. Honestly, I just knew this wasn't going to look good on me at all, or many people for that matter. The harsh black line really makes eyes look so much smaller, so I wanted to do a spin on this look but adjust it to flatter my features. That's so important about taking inspiration from fashion or celebrity looks - don't blindly follow every trend if it just doesn't work for you. Take inspiration and make it your own! So here's what I did...

I wanted to still keep the intensity of a strong black eyeliner, but I used pencils and shadows to soften it down a notch. I also eased up on the lower lash line, and blended things out in the crease to give the look a warm touch. The rest of the look I tried to keep very true to what Rita Ora wore, with just some bronzer, light blush and nude pink lips. This assures the focus is on the eyes all the way!

Watch my video tutorial how to create this look.
