I love how the color lasts all day long! Even when my lip gloss wears off, the base shade of my Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour keeps going strong!
Get the Look: Rita Ora at the LA Premiere of 50 Shades Darker
Who: Rimmel London Ambassador Rita Ora at the LA Premiere of 50 Shades Darker
The Look: Feminine with an edge
The Inspiration: Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung was inspired by the actress, singer and Rimmel London Ambassador’s floral Giambattista Valli gown, which reminded her of beautiful vintage English floral prints and watercolor paintings. She left Rita’s skin glowing with soft, rosy pink lips, eyes and cheeks.
How to Get the Look:
After applying moisturizer, Kathy brushed on Rimmel London Match Perfect Concealer in Light/Medium, letting it set and tapping with her ring finger to blend. Next, she applied Rimmel London InstaFlawless Skin Tint to give Rita’s skin a radiant finish. To set the look, Kathy lightly dusted her skin with Rimmel London InstaFlawless Fix and Matte Setting Powder using a fluffy face brush.
To finish, she applied Rimmel London Sculpting and Highlighting Kit by Kate Moss in Golden Sands to contour and highlight Rita’s cheeks, leaving them with a rosy glow.
Kathy prepped Rita’s lips with Rimmel London Lip Conditioning Balm by Kate as a primer and then applied Rimmel London Rimmel London The Only 1 Matte in Salute
EYES & BROWS
Kathy used Rimmel London Magnif’Eyes Eye Contouring Palette in London Nudes Calling and Keep Calm & Wear Gold, applying a beige color on the browbone and rosy bronze color on the lid and crease, blending it out towards the temples. For an added pop, she applied a metallic gold shade to the corner of the eyes.
To enhance her gorgeous brows, Kathy used the Rimmel London Brow This Way Sculpting Kit in Blonde. She brushed Rita’s brows into place with brush, then filled, shaped and set them with the wax and powder.
Finally, she applied Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara to upper and lower lashes.

The lipstick revolution goes matte! Rimmel London introduces The Only 1 Matte Lipstick, a new-generation, all-in-one matte lipstick that delivers long-lasting, non-drying colour, moisture and wear. It’s Matte lipstick that lets you have it all in one. No compromise.
