My 'Go-To' Eye Shadow Tutorial - Neutral Eyeshadows

On today's episode of Vanessa's Corner I decided to film an eyeshadow tutorial on my "Go-to" eye look using Neutral colours. It's pretty much my default eye look when I can't be bothered thinking on what to do with my eyes and have zero inspiration on getting ready - it's a good pick me up and great for those four eyed people such as myself!
I've chosen to go right smack bang in the middle of intense and simple with the shadows - this pretty much makes it appropriate for both day and night.
Personally, I feel like this eye pretty much goes with every lip colour, you can easily build it up with eye shadows for a more dramatic and intense look, or shun it down for a more simple look, it's all dependent on you - either way - it works, and it works well!







 






As per usual I have listed and snapped the products I have used in this Tutorial, along side are some links I have found where you can purchase some of the items online.


Products Used:
ELF Eyelid Primer (Sheer)




  • Eye Shadow - Kanebo Kate Gradical Eyes - BR-2
    It may be a bit cumbersome to purchase this online so I have also uploaded a few close up images of the shadows down below, you can then look through your collection and find something similar.



Kanebo Kate Gradical Eyes (BR-2)


(Left - Right) Chocolate Brown, Mid-tone Brown, Gold and Cream - all shadows have bits of shimmer, but you can use completely matte shadows, it's all to personal preference.



Essence Kajal Pencil - O8 Teddy



Rimmel London Exaggerate Eye Liner



Maybelline New York The Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara




Make Up Look. 
As per usual, I will flood your computer screen with pictures of my face, don't hate... appreciate! ;)






I hope you all enjoyed this Tutorial and give it a shot on yourself! 
If you have any questions regarding the Tutorial please feel free to comment. 
Am also taking any requests on make up tutorials if anyone's interested. 

Cheers!!

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For this make up look I had originally made it specifically for Winter, but the more I see the finished look the more I am swayed to wear it often during Spring as well - it's so pretty!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).


Products Used:

(Left - Right) Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Primer, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, Tony Moly Baby Doll Pot Concealer, Fashon 21 Two-Way Cake.
