It looks like Rita Ora's make-up artist Emma Osbourne and EBT are on the same wave length. Just as we posted a gallery of Romantic Goth looks, Emma gave Rita Ora a vampy lip for her appearance at the MOBO Awards last night in Liverpool.
Paired with Rita's strong brows, her bronzy smoky eyes really smouldered last night but it was the dark berry lip that caught my eye. While Emma was unavailable to comment (she's currently en route to create Rita's look on the X Factor tonight) my spies backstage at the event revealed that the lipstick was Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Blackberry, £18 (you can buy it on the Bobbi brown website here). You see Bobbi Brown Cosmetics was the Official Make-up Partner for the awards.
To recreate the rest of Ora's look I'd recommend Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation, £30, for a flawless base, then try Metallic Long-Wear Eyeshadow in Antique Gold, £18. Follow with a slick of black gel liner (Bobbi Brown's is the best) and lashings of black mascara, I love Origins Ginzing Brightening Mascara, £17, right now. And for that bold brow? I've been using the Hi Brow powder, £29.95 (lashperfect.co.uk) which is perfect to get that statement brow look.
The Romantic Goth-esque look worked just as well with the Thierry Mugler white dress Rita arrived in, as the Alexander McQueen floral dress (pictured) that she accepted her award for Best Newcomer wearing. Well deserved since she's had three UK no 1 singles this year alone!
A showstopping, versatile party look. Keep this in mind for all those upcoming Christmas parties...
