English Rose Inspired Full Make Up Tutorial

On today's episode of "Vanessa's Corner" I've made a full face make up tutorial on how to achieve an 'English Rose' inspired look. For this simple and romantic make up tutorial I looked at celebrities such as Keira Knightley and Emma Watson, and I looked at films by Jane Austin (ie. Emma, Pride and Prejudice), lol the fact that my inspiration was all English just happened to be a coincidence.

For this make up look I had originally made it specifically for Winter, but the more I see the finished look the more I am swayed to wear it often during Spring as well - it's so pretty! (not my face, I meant the make up... =P )

Keep in mind, for this look it's all about perfecting the skin (don't forget to exfoliate and moisturise!), straighter and thicker eyebrows (thicker than my usual),  a heavier hand on the blush (a more flushed look) and rosie stained lips, the eyes are more simple and soft. 

Here is a link for my DIY Tutorial on the Hair Piece I was wearing in the video: Hair Piece DIY Tutorial

Below I have listed and detailed the products I have used in this tutorial and for your convenience I have noted down links of where you could purchase them online (unfortunately some of the links only do shipping within Australia). I have also added photos of the colors of the products I have used, so that you can recreate the look with what you have at home (because some of the products aren't available anymore ie. Models Prefer Eye Shadows, MAC Blush).
