Style blogger, reality TV star and all-round fashionista, Rosie Fortescue, is fast becoming a British style icon. Always meticulously groomed and on trend, Rosie’s hair and beauty secrets are much sought after. Here is a look at five ways to recreate her style.
Rosie is often seen sporting long glossy curls. Using curling irons is an easy and quick way to create this look. Simply gather small sections of your hair and wrap loosely around the hot irons. Hold for a few seconds and release. You can achieve different looks by dividing your hair into larger or smaller sections.
Heat can leave your hair dry and brittle, so use a protective spray before curling and finish off with a pea-sized amount of serum to add shine. Apply the serum by rubbing into hands and then gently brush your hands though the curls. There are a great many stores offering affordable salon supplies throughout the UK, so try a few products to determine what works best for you. If any of the curls drop a little you can simply redo with the irons.
Looking stylish everyday can be tough on your locks. Rosie has stated in the past that she likes Moroccan oil. This oil is renowned for its restorative properties and is high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. Use this oil once or twice a week to moisturise and condition your hair to keep those curls looking healthy.
Fresh, healthy skin is a must for the Rosie look. The star embraces her naturally pale skin tone and has said she mixes her foundation and moisturiser to create a light finish. Using a good moisturiser will help to balance the natural oils on your skin and prevent dryness or oily patches.
To achieve all over healthy skin, use a moisturising scrub to remove dead skin cells, in-grown hairs and create a polished look. Follow this with an all over body moisturiser, specific facial moisturiser and lip balm. Try to choose products that protect against UVF and UVB damage to protect your skin from sun damage.
Simplicity is crucial when attempting to duplicate Rosie’s make-up. She usually opts for a natural shade of foundation or a tinted moisturiser, which complements her glowing skin. Daily cleansing and toning is an essential part of creating the healthy and natural glow, but do try to choose products without alcohol as this can dry out sensitive skin.
Next, apply bronzer across your cheeks with a large brush and create wide open eyes with volumising mascara. Finish the look with a matt lip pencil and be sure to select a luscious berry shade if you want to increase the glamour.
Rosie is a big fan of the high street and can often be seen wearing a mix of high-street and designer items to create unique and quirky outfits. Opt for tailored blazers, satin shirts and fitted trousers for the office. For a night on the town, opt for a pencil mini or printed shift dress and contrasting heels.
Last but not least is classic beauty advice of drinking lots of water and getting enough sleep. Rosie has attributed her healthy skin to drinking at least two litres of water each day and has also stressed the importance of eating a nourishing diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals.
