Rita Ora's Clumpy Mascara Is A Makeup Unicorn

Remember that time we waxed poetic about the wonders of clumpy mascara? It's one of those makeup-trend unicorns that manages to be both timeless and edgy, showing up 'round the eyeballs of everyone from Shelley Duvall to K. Stew to the models at Saint Laurent's most recent Paris fashion show.

We were thrilled when many of you chimed in to agree with us, and now it seems that Rita Ora feels the same, too — or at least, the person in charge of her makeup on the latest cover of Paper does. While that signature red lip is always the scene stealer of Ora's beauty looks, we couldn't help but notice her delightfully spidery eyelashes, held together with unapologetic clumps of mascara.
The key to pulling this look off, as illustrated by the cover? Keep the rest of your makeup super classic and clean. Between Ora's flawless, radiant skin, perfectly groomed brow, and lipstick fit for a screen siren, there's just enough tried-and-true gorgeousness to make room for an ultra-edgy detail.
The final, envy-inducing aspect of this look is that off-beat, crooked tiara situation. Between that and her makeup, she looks like a warrior wood nymph. Talk about unique spring beauty inspiration. Click through to Paper's site to read the interview and see more pictures of Ora being pretty and fabulous. We promise it'll make your Monday better.
