Getting ready with me..

As you know from a previous post I’m a Rita Ora fan and fell in love with one of her looks for the Xfactor semi final last week. She looked gorgeous so I wanted to try and recreate her look and it was pretty easy to do. I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas night out or even Christmas day.


I used the Naked Palette 2 along with the Sleek highlighting palette in precious metals to create my deep bronzed eyes. I used half baked and simply blended suspect into the creases. I also used antique bronze from the Sleek palette as a base and under the eye, which made the colour really pigmented and stand out. For the pale nude lip I used MAC-honey love and CHANEL-boy. These two work so well together as the Chanel lipstick is so hydrating and gives such a gorgeous finish. It’s my new favourite lippy.






For my hair I sectioned the 2 front sections (tying the rest back out of the way) and plaited them using the ‘dutch braid’ method. This is just like a french plait but means weaving the hair UNDER instead of OVER. This makes the plait stand out more which is why I love it. I secured the plaits under my hair with a bobby pin and tied the rest back in a tight bun. I pulled strands out around the front of my hair to create an effortless messy look. It was super easy even though it might not look it!


Hope I’ve given you a bit of inspo to try this look out yourself.
Love H xx
