Celebrity Makeup Artist, Kathy Jeung, worked with Rimmel London Brand Ambassador, Rita Ora, for this week’s Billboard Music Awards. Inspired by Rita’s black and white lace gown by Francesco Scognamiglio, Kathy picked up on the accents of the dress by going with smoky eyes with silver & gunmetal accents and shimmery highlights on the skin.
To create a smooth mattifying canvas for makeup, Kathy first used Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer, then tapped Match Perfection 2 ‘n 1 Concealer with her ring finger underneath Rita’s eyes to erase dark circles. Using a flat foundation brush, she applied Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation in broad strokes over the face, blending with a damp sponge to create a sheer, natural-looking matte finish before applying the brand’s Stay Matte Long Lasting Press Powder helped to keep Rita shine-free.
To highlight the tops of Rita’s cheekbones, jawline, and length of her nose, Kathy used Rimmel London Kate Moss Sculpting & Highlighting Kit in Coral Glow. She contoured the hollows under her cheekbones, just under her jawbone and under her chin using a narrow wedge brush and applied the blush using a rounded brush on the apples of her cheeks and extended towards temples. Using a large fluffy brush, she dusted bronzer along the hairline, temples, cheeks and under the chin, blending into the face to soften the contour. (more…)
